Thoughts on Xtreme

ThoughtsXtreme is an action crime movie that will follow a former hitman that gets betrayed, forcing him into retirement, until a teenager in need of help turns to him for help, as they look to get the revenge Max needs to put away the pain his brother put him through. This will play out like nearly every other revenge movie, as one person will need to overcome large amounts of odd to go face to face with the person that took everything from them. The action is relentless with the highly over the top action fight we see, and violence is never held back, as well as using a host of unique weapons when it comes to fight back. The performances are strong with Teo Garcia shining in the violence leading role.

Final Thoughts Xtreme is a violent action movie that never holds back.
