The enormous success of the recent R-rated Deadpool and Logan movies from Fox and the MCU shows on Netflix proves that there will always be a strong market for bloody and brutal superhero stories told onscreen. The latest excessively violent superhero movie to come our way is director Jesse Haaja’s Rendel: Dark Vengeance, and it’s now available on DVD and Blu-ray in the US courtesy of Shout! Factory.
Described as being the first feature-length Finnish superhero film (and hopefully not the last), it was released in theaters across its native country last year, in addition to playing at the Helsinki International Film Festival and Germany’s Fantasy Filmfest.
The titular Rendel, played by Kristofer Gummerus, is a masked one-man army who isn’t afraid to literally crack a few heads in his war against the VALA criminal organization. If you happen to be on Rendel’s naughty list, you had better start making peace with whichever fictional deity you believe in because unlike Batman, he isn’t afraid to permanently put down his enemies.
Rendel: Dark Vengeance also stars Bianca Bradey, Alina Tomnikov, Michael Hall, Johnny Vivash, Reino Nordin, and Sheila Shah. In addition to the physical release mentioned above, the film is also available to stream on Amazon Video.
