Hyper Violent

This movie is hyper-violent. Scott Adkins is absolutely brutal. In terms of violence, Day of Reckoning crosses the line from blood-splatters-and-bone-cracks gore into outright body horror; Especially, a scene where Scott kills somebody with a hammer is very violent…

The film’s violence was deemed excessive among negative reviews for Day of Reckoning. Clark Collis of Entertainment Weekly stated that the film “is so gruelingly violent you half wonder if director John Hyams’ goal is to make the audience get up and leave the theater rather than be party to the brutality.

Scott Bowles of USA Today also criticized the film for being “so mean-spirited and joyfully violent” that it leans toward the torture porn genre.

Scott becomes hell

As the movie continues, John begins to look less like the victim, and more like an unhinged, Frankenstein-esque creation that slowly becomes hell bent on destroying the people responsible for his very existence.

John seems to have a huge preference for headshots, and there’s even a spectacular scene where he hits someone’s head off with a baseball bat.

Dolph Lundgren and Jean-Claude van Damme

Co-stars of Scott Adins in this film are Dolph Lundgren and Jean-Claude van Damme.Both have limited screen time, but they do both have an extensive fight scene with Scott Adkins. But Scott is perfectly capable of killing both gentlemen. Plus he’s even killing his own alter-ego in this movie.
