Especially with direct-to-video action films, one motto often applies: Like attracts like. Because as a rule it is enough to let two rough-and-ready audience favorites meet, around whom you knit a straight thriller story garnished with a minimum of muscles, lead and snappy jokes. Voilà, ready is the genre vehicle that old-school action fans love. And if the duo harmonize well in front of the camera, the chances are all the better that the two will eventually work together again. And so the paths of Scott Adkins and Dolph Lundgren cross again, and they get down to business again in the German trailer for Castle Falls .
The two have already appeared together in front of the camera for “ Universal Soldier: Day Of Reckoning ”, “ The Legendary Dragon ” and of course “ The Expendables 2 ”. The special thing about «Castle Falls» is now, however: Lundgren stages his British regular colleague for the first time himself, because the main actor also took a seat on the director’s chair and staged the story by screenwriter Andrew Knauer («The Last Stand»). To get you in the mood for the latest Adkins-Lundgren team-up, we have the German trailer for you exclusively on FILMSTARTS today. The rest of the film will be available in just over a month: «Castle Falls» will be released unabridged on DVD and Blu-ray on May 26, 2022.

That’s what «Castle Falls» is about
The dream of a great MMA career is over for martial artist Mike Wade (Scott Adkins) after a serious shoulder injury. Today he keeps his head above water with odd jobs, such as a member of the demolition crew at Castle Heights Hospital. A job that will one day give him the chance of a lifetime. Shortly before the blast, the fighter discovers a total of three million dollars in the hospital, just waiting to be taken to safety and invested in a new, better life.
Richard Ericson (Dolph Lundgren) gets in the way while Wade devises a plan to steal the cash without anyone noticing. Because the jailer got wind of the matter and can use the money only too well for the treatment of his daughter who is suffering from cancer. And as if that weren’t enough, there’s also a gang of gangsters who see themselves as the rightful owners of the money — and have no intention of leaving the fortune to anyone else…
