Reviews
  • Cooltarget.blogspot.co.uk: AWOL-72 is stylishly shot, Luke Goss makes for a commanding leading man (let's get him in a big budget action film again!), the final fifteen minutes has some nicely staged gunplay and hand-to-hand fights (there should have been more of this), the supporting cast of familiar faces is a welcome touch and, well, Sesma certainly fills the running time with a plethora of beautiful women.

In the vein of blockbusters THE EXPENDABLES and THE A-TEAM, a group of highly skilled mercenaries find themselves betrayed by the U.S. Government, and are forced to fight their way out of an ambush by a new, lethal humanoid drone. Get ready for some intense action!

Reviews
  • Action-flix.com: Mandylor is in true action hero mode. Battle Drone is an epic indie action blast!
  • Bulletproofaction.com: Battle Drone did not have the star power of The Expendables or even some of the other movies inspired by the Stallone franchise, but what Battle Drone did have was plenty of video game style action jammed into the 93 minute runtime. I thought the cast had good chemistry and the movie progressed at an entertaining pace. Battle Drone also had a satisfying ending that left the door open for Rekker and company to see more action in the future.
  • Filmcombatsyndicate.blogspot.nl: For Battle Drone, Gould serves a consistent, solid leading man in Mandylor along with Parè and actress Swain. It's damn good fun!

Reviews
  • 28dayslateranalysis.com: Daylight's End and the creators know what their strong points are: action sequences and terrifying scenarios. Consistently uptempo and full of great musical selections, the film creates a compelling and thrilling atmosphere. And, this viewer will be first in line, when the film is released in home entertainment formats; this tense film is not to be missed.
  • Joblo.com: Daylight's End is an exceptionally well made film. The budget was relatively low, but that isn't felt in the film, which appears to play out on an epic scale, with its convincing shots of deserted disaster areas and abundance of action and gunfire. Kaufman knows action, that's the genre he has primarily been working in up to this point, and he used that knowledge to make the action sequences in this film as cool and thrilling as possible.
  • Mikefury.net: One of the most striking elements of the film are the visuals. Kaufman has built a reputation creating slick, cinematic and equally gritty character-driven action with a definite air of coolness. This is made much easier when the star is Johnny Strong, who has to be one of the most underrated leading men in movies today. So for true action fans, horror buffs or anyone who still loves an authentic, exciting movie experience by great artists, Daylight's End is a real blast.
  • Theactionelite.com: The movie is action-packed with plenty of violence and some cool weapons too so if you get to see the movie make sure you've got the sound turned up to 11 for maximum impact. Daylight's End brings the action goods with a badass hero in Johnny Strong, fast pacing and an unconventional script.
  • Truthoncinema.com: Pure Adrenaline and Carnage. This film sets a standard for indie projects with vision larger than their budgets. It rolls hard and fast and pays the consequences for that choice, but ultimately walks away a winner; combining the action-oriented sensibilities of Resident Evil with the world-building prowess of I Am Legend. A worthy edition to the ranks of apocalyptic thrillers, Daylight's End is sure for a cult following if not mainstream success.
  • Screenanarchy.com: One of the best things about this film is the action. The gun battles are meticulously choreographed and made with precision. The tactics are sound and the filmmakers have a clear familiarity with the weapons used. The fights are visceral and feel real, making them much more exciting than most of the CGI-laden films that regularly hit our screens these days.

Reviews
  • Spoilerfreemoviesleuth.com: Filled with gruesome kills, a wonderfully hammy villain, and thrilling action sequences, this is the kind of picture that is the foundation for the genre.
  • Actionreloaded.com: The Mercenary doesn’t skimp on violence either it is quite brutal, which I am sure action fans will love. Vandenberg brings his A game and I found the movie too be so much fun.
  • Theactionelite.com: Overall, The Mercenary is the action movie to beat this year and it`s only January 2nd. With a badass protagonist, a hateful villain and no shortage of bloodshed The Mercenary delivers and action fans should definitely seek it out.
  • Worldfilmgeek.com: This is definitely Dominiquie Vandenberg’s shining moment as he proves to be stellar in the lead role. A must see for action fans.
  • Bulletproofaction.com:  Dom Vandenberg is a natural fighter with a background with the French Foreign Legion, a great kicker, he’s excellent with all firearms and a master with the knife. Plus, it pays to have Louis Mandylor as the main baddie. These two together make for an awesome action movie.
  • Filmlegacy.net: There’s an undeniable satisfaction to watching a revenge plot play out, action fans will not be disappointed.
  • Kungfukingdom.com: Delivers all the hard-hitting action viewers crave while blending it with a story of a warrior ready to retire but forced to complete one final mission. Dominiquie Vandenberg delivers a gentle, understated performance as a the title character while simultaneously going all out in the film’s abundant action scenes.
  • Outlawvern.com: it's surprisingly brutal, and it ends up feeling like an origin story for a guy you want to see having more adventures.

The Mourning

Drama, Thriller
Available on VOD: 20 april 2015
Director: Marc Clebanoff
Cast: Michael Rene Walton (20 Ft Below: The Darkness Descending), Louis Mandylor (My Big Fat Greek Wedding 1 & 2, One in the Chamber), Dominique Swain (Face/Off, Lolita), Sally McDonald

Aaron returns to his small Michigan hometown, inexplicably not having aged since his disappearance in Desert Storm 20 years prior. Unable to speak initially, Aaron must confront the evolution of his loved ones in his absence, while they come to terms with the reappearance of the boy who they let go years prior.

As Aaron assimilates himself back into the lives of his family and childhood love, it becomes apparent that his homecoming is not permanent. A conspiracy theorist determined to prove that Aaron was abducted by aliens and a mysterious metaphysical guardian help build toward a finale in which Aaron must tie up loose ends before returning to his other worldly existence.

Reviews
  • Filmthreat.com: In the end, you can certainly find value in the sci-fi aspects of The Mourning, but for me the real meat is in the core of a man returning after a life-altering experience. You could tell this story as is with a potential alien connection, but it would be just as valid and strong if it was simply Aaron returning after being at war. The impact and power of the piece is in the interpersonal relationships, and how those must adapt, evolve and heal.
