What to know

critics consensus

Avengement compensates for a lack of narrative originality with thrilling sequences of violent, bone-crunching action, elevated by Scott Adkins' brutally intense performance. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for Avengement

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (3)

  • "Avengement" is Adkins-Johnson's best film yet: a clever reinvention of their formula, which puts all the usual bone-crunching into a more mythic context.

    May 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • If you like watching an endless string of prison brawls and pub fights connected by the thinnest of narrative threads, then you'll be in heaven.

    May 24, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • Portraying his most complex character to date, Adkins delivers a ferocious turn that proves visceral in its emotional as well as physical intensity.

    May 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This is a gritty, mean, down and dirty crime story about gritty, mean, down and dirty criminals. It's also Johnson and Adkins' most ambitious film to date, as well as maybe their best.

    June 30, 2020 | Rating: A | Full Review…
  • As usual, Adkins' fighting is great and his acting is, besides the aforementioned hindrances, above decent. This may not be his best work, but it's good nonetheless.

    April 4, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • While Avengement isn't exactly a classic in any regard, it's a step in the right direction for a new breed of British thumpfests that - if Adkins can wield his sensibilities correctly - may just begin to rival their Eastern origins.

    Absurd. I can not - I will not accept - that a movie called Avengement could have been this good.
