Synopsis: The Accident Man is back and this time he must beat the top assassins in the world to protect the ungrateful son of a mafia boss, save the life of his only friend and rekindle his relationship with his maniacal father figure.
Adkins is BACK with his fists of fury
Scott Adkins returns as Mike Fallon in the eagerly awaited sequel to 2018’s Accident Man, Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday.
Mike Fallon is just as well known as Boyka and Casey Bowman when it comes to the Adkins-verse. Within the hitman community, Fallon is known for making every hit look like an accident.
Up to his old tricks but out of Maltesers
In Hitman’s Holiday, Fallon is in Malta having shit luck getting maltesers, watching Bake Off, and, of course, subtly killing people. Then his old friend, Fred, pops up in Malta, turning Fallon’s world upside down in no time. Even though he and Mike eliminate a few people, buy a warehouse, and come up with many “accidental” killing mechanisms – which is all shown in a cool easy go-happy montage – it doesn’t take long before they are framed for a botched hit.
Fallon is forced to protect Dante, the son of a ruthless mob boss, in exchange for Fred not being killed. Dante is a grown man who acts like a spoiled 12-year-old who now has a bounty on his head and some of the world’s best hitmen closing in on him.
A sequel that punches you in the face before kicking you in the balls
The sequel packs a punch and changes the tone from the original, which was more of a dark thriller with comedic overtones. The sequel lets Fallon have some fun and opens up the possibility of more action-comedies in the future. Typical of a movie starring Adkins, the fights are epic and grand, and Adkins once again puts his body through hell for our entertainment. He never fails to deliver a five-star fight scene.
The finale of Hitman’s Holiday features one of Adkins’ best fight scenes to date between Fallon and Oyumi, played by Andy Long, a mighty assassin who is one of the most powerful assassins alive today. A few minutes before this epic battle Fallon goes up against the sadistic, concrete hammer wielding clown Poco played menacingly by Beau Fowler. Poco feels no pain, so no matter what Fallon unleashes on him, he doesn’t feel it. This fight will have audiences wincing in pain and glued to their seats. It will not be forgotten in a hurry.
Ray Stevenson is back as Big Ray and has his big moment in the movie, newcomer Sarah Chang plays Siu-Ling, an ally of Fallons who keeps his skills sharp and keeps him alert. Chang steals the show and gets a very awesome fight scene at the end of the movie.
Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday is a fun sequel that injects the audience with a high-octane dosage of Adkins Adrenaline.
