Movie Info

Chilean action star Marko Zaror shows off the skills and charisma that made him a major box office draw in South America in this thriller. Mandrill (Zaror) became an orphan at an early age when a gang of thugs murdered his parents. The boy was taken in by his uncle Chone (Alejandro Castillo), who taught young Mandrill how to defend himself through an exhaustive course in the martial arts. Mandrill became a prodigy in battle, and now makes his living as a hit man; working for an underworld syndicate, he's a suave but deadly killer for hire who hopes to someday find and take out the men who killed his Mom and Dad. Career and personal ambitions come together when Mandrill is assigned to kill a man involved in his parent's murder, but his emotions get in the way when he falls for Dominik (Celine Reymond), the beautiful daughter of the man he's supposed to eliminate. Mandrill was directed by Ernesto Diaz Espinoza, who collaborated with Marko Zaror on several of his most successful pictures. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

what can i say this is the greatest fucking movie of its kind i have seen in a long time. Its just done so well, I felt like I was a kid in the 70s watching every kind of cheesy movie, TV series I grew up with. I can't believe it took me so long to find such a hidden gem. I wish there were more of these great little movies to watch. Mandrill your so fucking awesome it hurts to watch all this crap they make these days. I just watched danger 5 and I started watching this and I just can't get enough of this type of shit, it just blows my mind especially when I am high.
