Plot synopsis [contains a spoiler]:
Carver (Lee Majors) is a courageous former green beret and true gentleman, who stands by soldiers old and new and helps them in their hour of need. When struggling veteran Burton (Nick Moran) comes to him for support, he does his best to help.
Introducing him to his loyal old special forces comrades Peck (Ian Ogilvy), Woody (Billy Murray) and Harris (Paul Barber), they welcome the new-recruit with open arms, living by their ethos of ‘You don’t leave a man behind even when the war is over and done with…’.
When Carver is shockingly murdered, the ex-army Renegades band together to protect his daughter Judy (Patsy Kensit) and exact revenge on those responsible… a vicious international drug gang, led by the fearsome Goram (Louis Mandylor). They’re ready to dispense their own brand of old-school justice on the mean streets of London.
Aided by the enigmatic Sanchez (Danny Trejo), the veterans must stay one step ahead of determined Scotland Yard Detective Moore (Jeanine Nerissa Sothcott) and stop Goram’s gang from taking their deadly hold on the city…
Renegades will be released in the UK by 101 Films on 30 January 2023, with a UK premiere to be announced soon.
