Verdict on Renegades
Renegades is an action crime thriller following a group of retired Green Berets. When one of their own is murdered, they regroup with a plan to get revenge on the drug lord who murdered him. This sees the unit using their skills to get the better of the gang that isn’t prepared for this type of combat.
In the London gang scene for movies, we have seen plenty over the years. This brings the biggest names back together for an Expendables addition, as the older generation fights back against a young threat. It gives the bigger names a chance to enjoy their time on screen. As well as giving an easy to watch enjoyable movie.
Final Thoughts – Renegades could become the British Expendables.
