This Monday, August 27, sees the home entertainment release of action star Luke Goss' latest effort, INTERVIEW WITH A HITMAN. If you're used to seeing him playing a human wrecking ball, take-no-prisoners kind of a guy in the likes of the HELLBOY sequel and the DEATH RACE movies, then INTERVIEW WITH A HITMAN may surprise you as, despite its dark subject matter and a story that essentially revolves around the way of the gun, the film is more of a character piece with merely a helping of action rather than an abundance, and instead relies on interpersonal drama.
Here's the official blurb:
Trust No one. Feel nothing. Never lose: this is the mantra that has helped a ruthless Eastern European assassin rise to the pinnacle of his profession. Raised in the harsh slums of Romania, Victor knows the value of life more than most, which makes him the perfect killer. But after being betrayed by the very men who made him, he must fake his own death and escape to London. Here he joins a new gangster family and finds his rules are again put to the test in the midst of a vicious underworld power struggle. Viktor is now better, faster and more ruthless than ever before. With the secrets of his past refusing to fade away, an encounter with a dark beauty turns his world on its head and offers him the chance for a new life. But can he ever escape the existence he was born into? It is not long before a deadly threat from a past he thought long buried surfaces and he is forced to change his path. It is time to face that which cannot be forgotten.
To mark next week's DVD and Blu-ray release courtesy of Kaleidoscope Entertainment, we have an AICN-exclusive clip from the film showing Goss' character Viktor in his youth growing up on the wrong side of the tracks in Eastern Europe.
Enjoy the clip, and while you're here, check out my interview (beware of spoilers) with the man himself from earlier this summer. We delved deep into character motivations, audience expectations and all that good stuff. Luke always gives great interviews, so give it a read.
