Verdict on My Name is Vendetta
My Name is Vendetta is an action thriller that sees a former hitman getting drawn back into the life after his former bosses discover him alive. This sees him needing to use his skills to protect his daughter against hitmen coming after him after his former boss refuses to let it be.
As we enter a revenge-filled assassin-planted world, we get to see something that feels similar to a ‘Taken’ movie. An older figure needs to fight back against larger numbers who want him dead. It gets all the basic right, being violent in style, however, nothing ends up feeling fresh. This ends up becoming a by-the-books action movie that is perfect for the late-night action collection.
Where to Watch: My Name is Vendetta is available to watch on Netflix.
Final Thoughts – My Name is Vendetta is a pure late-night action movie.
