Wolf Warrior, 2015 Following a tense hostage situation, Sergeant Leng Feng of the People’s Liberation Army is court-martialed by his superiors for disobeying orders, despite the fact that his actions saved the hostage’s life. Recognizing his superior combat skills and dedication to his country, Lieutenant Colonel Long Xiaoyun overrides Leng Feng’s reprimand and recruits him to China’s most elite Special Forces unit, codenamed the “Wolf Warriors”. Following his release, Leng Feng joins the Wolf Warriors for what is supposed to be no more than a typical army training exercise. However, he’s unfortunately become the target of the vicious drug lord Ming Feng, who happens to be the brother of the madmen Leng Feng had killed earlier. Ming Feng recruits a team of highly trained mercenaries, under the leadership of ex-Navy SEAL “Tom Cat”, to take out Leng Feng, while the Wolf Warrior’s training exercise quickly turns into a battle for their lives. Scott Adkins is "Tom Cat". He has some various scenes, but there’s way too little Scott Adkins in the movie. Funniest moment in the movie is that Adkins tells a soldier: “You may not be the smartest soldier I’ve ever met, but you’re definitely the bravest.”
Zero Tolerance, 2015 Two former paramilitary operatives, Johnny and Peter, search Bangkok to find the killers of Johnny's daughter, Angel. But when Angel turns out to be a high-level call girl, Johnny and Peter shoot their way through pimps, drug cartels, and anyone that comes between them and the truth. Zero Tolerance was previously completed and released only in Vietnam under the title of Angels. The film was designed to be a slow burning drama with action scenes peppered throughout it. Unfortunately, Kaosayananda found it difficult to sell his film to distributors because Angels was more of a drama than an action film. Therefore, Kaosayananda decided to add action star Scott Adkins into the mix for marquee value and to reshoot and re-edit the entire film in order to craft more of a stream lined actioner that would interest buyers. This re-edited version, entitled Zero Tolerance, is the cut of the film that has been released to the rest of the world.

The story behind one of the greatest myths is revealed in this action-packed epic - a tale of love, sacrifice and the strength of the human spirit. Scott has not the lead in this movie, but ofcourse he's The King... As King Amphitryon he has a major role.

Scott joined this film just after a knee surgery, so he had to take time off from action stuff. He just auditioned for some part. They wouldn't give him the script because it was all top secret, but it's the kind of thing you don't say no to. "It was great to be with all these actors. Even the ones with small roles were such great actors, and everyone was elevating their scenes together." "They didn't know anything about me being a martial artist when they cast me. just went in and auditioned and they liked it. Look, I'm by no means the star of the movie. It's an ensemble film and there's loads of speaking roles in it, and I'm just happy to be a part of it."
