The Asylum + Bad-Ass Chicks = Mercenaries

by Phil Wheat

Starring Zoe Bell (Raze), Vivica A. Fox (Kill Bill), Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3), Brigitte Nielsen (Rocky IV) and Cynthia Rothrock (China O’Brien), Mercenaries is the latest movie from purveyors of all things exploitation The Asylum, who it seems are getting the jump on their Hollywood counterparts by releasing what is essentially an all-female take on The Expendables.


The official synopsis reads thus:

A diplomatic official is captured and imprisoned while touring a war zone, so a team of elite female commandoes is assembled to infiltrate a women’s prison for a daring rescue.

Which is less of a synopsis and more of an excuse to see some fantastic butt-kicking action from the cast which includes two of the best female action stars ever – Zoe Bell (who kicks mucho arse in the recently released Raze) and the legend that is Cynthia Rothrock.

I just hope that director Christopher Olen Ray lets us see these two let loose on the screen – god knows I’ve waited long enough for Rothrock return to the genre, her last action flick – Sci-Fighters – was TEN years ago!

Mercenaries is apparently set for release on August 5th – so not long to wait!
