Accident Man, 2018
Mike Fallon, the Accident Man, is a stone cold killer, whose methodical hits, baffle the police and delight his clients, he is the best at what he does. But when a loved one is dragged into the London underworld and murdered by his own crew, Fallon is forced to rip apart the life he knew in order to hold those accountable and avenge the one person who actually meant something to him.
Scott Adkins about Accident Man:
"When I was a kid I came across the comic book and I loved it, and I always felt it would be a great film. Nobody made it so I took it upon myself to make the film. I now am Mike Fallon, the Accident Man. I optioned the property myself, wrote the script, produced it, starred in it – so I don’t think it gets much more of a passion project than that."
"I’m a big fan of comics but I like the British stuff like 2000AD. A lot of the comics from that era were quite violent and anarchic and sardonic and all the rest of it. I liked the character and I did like the violence, to be honest. I enjoy violence on film, I always have. I was exposed to violent movies as a young boy – I find it very entertaining.
Now don’t get me wrong: I’m not a violent person in real life. Although I do martial arts, I don’t go round punching people. But there’s a certain entertainment value to be had and when I was growing up they used to make action films that were proper, very violent movies."
"Mike Fallon is a sarcastic arsehole so maybe I share that in common (laughs). He’s a pretty despicable character to be honest but i love anti-hero’s and I believe that as long as you make that character interesting or charming then no matter how much of a bad guy he may be, as long as you mount the obstacles against him and make his enemies more despicable then the audience will go along for that ride."
"I’m proud of many things in the movie: I’m proud that it’s my first time as a producer, I was able to pull that movie off on a very small budget. I really like my performance in it as well: I thought I took a step up there. It was a dream project, I wanted to do it just to do it. I didn’t want to die, having not done this. I’m very happy that people seem to like the movie. I know it’s already found its audience and I hope it continues to find more people that like that sort of film."
