After rescuing his kidnapped niece from a powerful drug cartel, Colton MacReady (Scott Adkins) begins a relentless fight to save his family. The cartel has descended upon his secluded ranch with a thirst for revenge. In tow are a corrupt local sheriff and his crew of deputies, ensuring that help won’t be coming any time soon. What ensues is a non-stop assault on the ranch, a blow-by-blow survival marathon for Colton to protect his loved ones and save his life.
Colton MacReady is a rogue soldier accused of not taking orders. He has since been on the run but when his niece is kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel after her step father was accused of stealing from them Colton decides to take matters into his own hands and rescues the young girl and takes her back to her mom, but trouble is not far behind. The cartel has the local sheriff on their side and both are on their way to the mom's house to settle it for once and for all but Colton has other plans.
"Close Range" is an action film from Director, Isaac Florentine, the film has a weak/simple story line and the acting ranges from good to below average but the film does have one thing going for it, action. The film had a limited Theater run and it also played on VOD, but with a better story line and a better character development it could have done a lot better.
The one saving grace here is the action scenes which are well done, there are gun fights as well as some hand to hand combat and most of them are exciting to watch. Scott Adkins does a great job playing Colton and as always he handles all his action scenes with ease. "Close Range" is available now on DVD and Blu-ray, you can order the DVD HERE and the Blu-ray HERE.
There is not much I can add here, the story line is simple and it contains no plot twists or surprises, the acting is at times a little weak and the main characters could have used some work but as it stands it is still a decent action film so if you are looking for something light to watch that will keep your attention then give this a try. It is worth checking out for Adkins alone.
