Exclusive Interview – Scott Adkins talks the stunt industry, meeting action heroes, and producing Accident Man

Red Stewart chats with actor Scott Adkins

Scott Adkins is an English actor and stuntman that has been working in the film and television industry since the mid-90s. He is best known for his roles in various action-adventure and martial arts films like the Undisputed series, The Expendables II, and Ninja. His latest films include Triple Threat, The Debt Collector, Incoming, Abduction, and Accident Man.

Flickering Myth had the privilege to speak with him, and I in turn had the honor to conduct it. I began by asking Mr. Adkins about his thoughts on the current state of the stunt industry. In the last few years, we have lost a couple of brave individuals who did irreplaceable work, including John Bernecker on The Walking Dead and Sj Harris on Deadpool 2, and I was wondering what he believed were some initiatives that could be taken to prevent any future tragedies from occurring.

‘Accident Man’ DVD Review

Stars: Scott Adkins, Ray Stevenson, Michael Jai White, Ray Park, Ashley Greene, David Paymer, Nick Moran, Tim Man, Ross O’Hennessy | Written by Scott Adkins, Stu Small | Directed by Jesse V. Johnson

Not all comic-book movies have to be about superheroes… or heroes at all for that matter. Case in point: Accident Man. Originally debuting in a series of comic strips in the 90s UK comic Toxic!, Accident Man was created by Pat Mills and Tony Skinner – two legends of the UK comics scene who, beside this character, penned stories or Judge Dredd and ABC Warriors. In fact Mills is one of creators of 2000Ad, a British institution that has already seen success outside of the comics realm, with numerous video games based on characters within its pages and not one but two Judge Dredd movies!

For those not familiar with the Mills and Skinner creation, Mike Fallon is a hitman,

Exclusive: Scott Adkins on Brutal Comic Book movie Accident Man & why he thinks the Oscars needs a stunt category

The UK comics scene in the 80s was a mixture of playground larks, smart alec troublesome kids, weekly toy advertisements, immaculate footballers and wartime nostalgia. It was boom time for the Beanos, Dandys and many more Saturday morning doormat slappers. But there was a change coming, and spurred on by the noxious odour of Viz and the dystopian adult themes of 2000Ad a new breed of comics came of age in the final decade of the twentieth century.

These new comics catered for kids who had grown up with Dennis the Menace and were ready for something a bit more mature. 1991 was the fateful year, when the Fleetway backed Crisis was joined by 2000Ad man Kevin Mills teaming up with Apocalypse Ltd to bring Toxic! to newspaper shops across the UK. Though these comics didn’t last as long as those whose pages they sat alongside they were potent enough

Origin Stories: 7 movies you never knew were based on comic books

  • HeyUGuys
As you’re no doubt well aware, comic book movies are all the rage these days. While we still get the odd dud, the genre continues going from strength to strength and the Marvel Cinematic Universe is at the forefront of that right now.

However, while we all know who characters like Captain America, Spider-Man, and The Hulk are from our childhoods, there are a lot of comic books out there you probably haven’t heard of. The question is, do you know which of your favourites movies are based on them?

Accident Man is one such film, adapted by Stu Small and Scott Adkins from the Toxic comic strips by Pat Mills and Tony Skinner, and directed by Jesse Johnson, it arrives on Home Entertainment formats this week.

Accident Man Interview: Scott Adkins Makes His Passion Project

There's something quintessentially British about Mike Fallon, the high-class hitman at the center of Pat Mills' original Accident Man comic series from the early 90's. Orderly, deliberate and vicious, the character is like Jame Bond's sociopathic brother that everyone figures is a bit mad but no one can prove it. I don't know what that says about 15-year-old Scott Adkins, who discovered the character and fell in love with him, but Fallon has stayed with the action star until now when he's been able to realize his dream of bringing him to life on screen. Equally British in tone, Accident Man the movie feels at one with Guy Ritchie's wise guy movies as funny as they are thrilling. I had a chance to speak with...

The Wonderful World of Dtv: Director Jesse V. Johnson's Accident Man - 2018

Actor and Martial Artist Scott Adkins is no stranger to comic book movies, with him making appearances in both X Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) and more recently Doctor Strange (2016). Both films didn’t exactly use Adkins to their advantage, with his role in X Men Origins: Wolverine being no more than a glorified stuntman, filling in for actor Ryan Reynolds when required. Doctor Strange at least gave the audience a chance to see Adkins face, but other than this, his role was just another in a line of henchman that lead actor Benedict Cumberbatch has to defeat throughout the film. If nothing else, at least these films gave Adkins a chance to work in more mainstream fare. Thankfully, Adkins own comic book vehicle, Accident Man...

Accident Man Trailer Is Full of Nasty 90s-Style Action

Accident Man Trailer Is Full of Nasty 90s-Style Action
Brace yourselves for the utter insanity that is the Accident Man trailer. Deadpool and Logan have kicked the door wide open for Hollywood to explore the idea of R-rated comic book movies in a big way. And, in this case, in kind of a small way. Accident Man isn't going to make its way to the big screen, but that doesn't mean it can't pack a serious R-rated punch. If nothing else, this footage looks absolutely nuts and, though cheesy, pretty impressive for something on a very minimal budget. Dare we say, there are even gentle shades of John Wick in here. After all, this movie was directed by a former stuntman, much like John Wick and John Wick: Chapter Two.

That said, it's hard to expect that Accident Man, which arrives on DVD and Digital platforms on February 6, 2018, will be nearly as pleasantly surprising as John Wick. However, the

Movie Review – Savage Dog (2017)

Savage Dog, 2017.

Written and directed Jesse V. Johnson.

Starring Scott Adkins, Marko Zaror, Cung Le, Juju Chan, Vladimir Kulich, and Keith David.

Synopsis:

A story set in Indochina in 1959, a land beyond rule and a time without mercy and the birth of a legend.

Scott Adkins is busy these days. He seems to have had about 100 films out this year already, and in the UK alone fans have been treated to the double whammy release of Savage Dog and Boyka: Undisputed on the same day. Adkins is stepping up as the undisputed king of straight to video action. That crossover to the big screen as a leading man still alludes him, but he’s still found his own market and kept his standards mostly high.

Savage Dog marks the first of Adkins triple bill with director Jesse Johnson (well established already as a stuntman turned director, and nephew of legendary stuntman,

Award-Winning Gangster Thriller, The Beautiful Ones, Exposes The Real-World Ugliness Of Film Distribution In Its Unnecessarily Color-Corrected U.S. Trailer

Film multi-hyphenate Jesse V. Johnson's (upcoming Accident Man and Triple Threat) long-awaited modern-day Romeo & Juliet gangster thriller, The Beautiful Ones, has seen a raft of accolades and wins in the last few years and one only wondered since what would become of its U.S. release. Gravitas Ventures answered that question with its acquisition back in Feburary and even moreso in the past few weeks with its own trailer...in color. Not black and white. Not the version upon which reporters like myself have been giving this movie glowing reviews over. Nope. This one, depressingly color corrected and its entire aesthetic and creative value nearly completely undone at best; if you saw the earlier black and white version of the film, you might understand as that particular color treatment...

Alain Moussi interview: Kickboxer: Vengeance, action icons and Statham

Duncan Bowles Dec 30, 2016

Alain Moussi takes us through the new Kickboxer film, the joys of Jason Statham, and salutes Scott Adkins too...

Alain Moussi is a very happy man. When we spoke to him on the phone to talk about the home release of Kickboxer: Vengeance his enthusiasm and passion for the film and all things action movie related were in abundance and rightly so. Moussi has been working in stunts for years, doubling for the likes of Henry Cavill, Aaron Eckhart and recently Hugh Jackman in this year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, but Kickboxer has given him not only the chance to play his first lead role, but to act alongside several of his childhood heroes. There’s also the benefit that two sequels have already been greenlit and are under production already, so here’s hoping Moussi’s first franchise shines a light on his burgeoning talent.

For action fans,
