Tokarev is the new Nicolas Cage movie in which he’s back with a bang in an action-packed, high-octane revenge drama, which makes its UK debut on Blu-ray and DVD and from Anchor Bay Entertainment on September 22nd. Cage fans in the USA, who think they may have missed out on this one, will know it by a different name – Rage.
After a life of crime in his younger years Paul Maguire (Cage – Kick Ass, Leaving Las Vegas), now lives a charmed life. Fully reformed from his old ways, he is now a successful businessman, with a nice house, a lovely wife Vanessa (Rachel Nichols – Star Trek, Conan The Barbarian) and a wonderful daughter Caitlin (Aubrey Peeples – Nashville, Sharknado), who he dotes on. But all that is set to change when his daughter is kidnapped and killed. Hell bent on revenge, nothing will stop Paul in his search to find those responsible.
One night Paul and Vanessa head out to a charity dinner, leaving Caitlin at home with her friends Evan and Michael (Max Fowler – The Killing, May Day), however the next time Paul sees his daughter is in a body bag. Detective Peter St. John (Danny Glover – Lethal Weapon, Saw) is assigned to the case and is told by the two boys that a gang of Russian men stormed the house and took Caitlin, leaving destruction in their wake.
Convinced the kidnapping is his past coming back to haunt him, Paul takes the law into his own hands and enlists the help of his former partners in crime who scour the underworld, taking on the Russian Mafia and every lowlife in between to get answers.
Can a man ever truly get away from his past sins? The stakes are high and so is the body count in this tense, fast- paced action thriller, with a shocking twist in its tail.
