Waxman said "The movie is a different tone than the previous films – a crazy, violent ‘grindhouse’ style... There isn't as much gun play as Max Con but we wanted to go old school and make a sort of ‘western kung fu movie’ on this one."[2]



A crime lord is torn between his legacy and his desire to leave the life of crime that built his empire. A new villain tries to use the town's anti-hero network to climb to power. The crime lord must rely on his assassin protégé, who has his own troubles. In an epic battle of under-bosses and crime lords, only one will survive.
