We’ve lost count on how many Die Hard clones have been produced over the years and it is certainly a trend that won’t be ending anytime soon. Former wrestler turned action hero, Dave Bautista is the latest to enter the gritty action territory with Final Score, which takes place in an English football stadium.
The premise revolves around a group of heavily armed criminals who take control of a stadium packed with 35,000 football fans. Ex-soldier Michael Knox (Bautista) is forced to use skills from his military background and everything at his disposal to save the spectators, including the life of a fallen comrade’s daughter.
Judging by the premise and the trailer, Final Score seems like a re-thread of Jean-Claude Van Damme’s 1995 actioner, Sudden Death, which takes place in an ice-hockey stadium during a big match.
Final Score is directed by Scott Mann (Heist) and also stars Pierce Brosnan, Ray Stevenson, Ralph Brown and Amit Shah.
