A former soldier of fortune turned Man of God finds his past returning to haunt him in the official trailer to The Mercenary, formerly known as Legion Maxx.
Maxx is a legionnaire turned mercenary. When a mission in South America goes wrong Maxx is left for dead, but he is nursed back to health and reborn with a new outlook on life. He tries to live tranquilly within the confines of his new beliefs surrounded by his new friends at a church. But his peaceful days are short-lived when mercenaries he used to work with cross his path again and he is forced to revisit and face his own demons. His brutal past, war and violence have come looking for him again. His path to redemption is interrupted and Maxx becomes an avenging warrior using the skills that were his trade.
Dominiquie Vandenberg, a real life martial artist and ex-French Foreign Legion soldier, takes on the titular role as he reunites with director Jesse V. Johnson after appearances in Pit Fighter and Triple Threat. The film co-stars Louis Mandylor and the late Carmen Argenziano in one of his final film roles.
Uncork’d Entertainment will unleash The Mercenary on January 7 on DVD and Digital.
