Verdict on AKA
AKA is an action thriller following a special undercover officer infiltrating a criminal syndicate. As the man gets close to the family, he finds himself getting caught in the middle of the bigger battle for power within the syndicate.
This is a big action movie that isn’t afraid to get involved in brutal battles within a crime syndicate. It is filled with disinformation that Adam must figure out how to get the information, without being uncovered. While this doesn’t do anything that we haven’t seen before. It does keep everything on the entertaining level. We could have easily seen a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie here, but Alban Lenoir makes for a strong action-man lead.
Where to Watch: AKA is available on Netflix now.
Final Thoughts – AKA is an entertaining action-packed movie.
