ACCIDENT MAN tells the tale of Mike (Scott Adkins), a hit man who makes his kills look like accidents or suicide. When his ex-girlfriend is murdered, it seems like a case of wrong place, wrong time. But when Mike starts to investigate, he discovers that all is not what it seems. Soon he's on a mission for vengeance.
I was lukewarm on the first ACCIDENT MAN, but I'm glad they took all my notes that I never gave them: There are way more accident-based murders, less Guy Ritchie shit, and they give the fights tons of stylish flair. There's even some character development: It's all about friendship. First time-directors Harry and George Kirby don't just deliver great fights either but also crafted a DTV film that looks... Good? I thought that wasn't allowed.
Was there a particular stunt you couldn't do in the original that you were able to in 'Hitman's Holiday?'There were a lot of kills in 'Accident Man.' He kills people and makes it look like an accident. One of them didn't make it into the first film, so we put it in the second. When we shot it, we read it again and realized we didn't need it. Maybe we put that in the third film [laughs]. We're always finding new ideas for killing people in inventive ways.
When it comes to the Spider-Man universe, the second Sam Raimi feature remains highly regarded amongst fans and critics despite the numerous reboots and sequels that have followed the Tobey McGuire vehicle. To recall, the Spidey sequel focuses on Dr. Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina), whose wife is killed in a freak accident when his nuclear fusion experiment fails and explodes. During that fatal accident, Doc Ock's inhibitor chip is destroyed, and his highly intelligent metal arms feed into the doctor's darker side, which could potentially result in the destruction of an entire city if Spider-Man doesn't stop him.
"There's a gaggle of assassins about to turn up!" Goldwyn Films has revealed the official US trailer for an action comedy sequel titled Accident Man: Hitman's Holiday. It's the second movie after the original Accident Man in 2018, directed by Jesse V. Johnson, bringing back Adkins as the "accident man" in the title. Scott Adkins returns as Mike Fallon, a tough hitman who makes his hits look like accidents or suicide. The Accident Man is back again and this time he must fight all the top assassins to protect the ungrateful son of a mafia boss, save the life of his only friend, and rekindle his relationship with his maniacal father figure. Sounds wild! In addition to Adkins, the cast includes Ray Stevenson, Perry Benson, Sarah Chang, Flaminia Cinque, Faisal Mohammed, Peter Lee Thomas, and Beau Fowler as "Poco The Killer Clown". This does look ridiculous in a self-aware way, and clearly a chance to take a filmmaking vacation to Malta, also with a mediocre riff on Bond & Q, but it does seem kooky and entertaining. Perhaps just a little.
