Speed Kills (2018)
Saturday 29th December 2018
From the makers of The Mechanic and The Iceman, Miami Vice meets The Wolf of Wall Street as superstar John Travolta stars alongside Vikings' Katheryn Winnick in the high-octane true-crime biopic Speed Kills, released on DVD 21st January 2019.
John Travolta (Grease, Gotti), stars as a speedboat racing champion and multimillionaire whose secret life as a drug trafficker lands him in a deadly crossfire between the DEA and the Mob.
Spanning the 1960s to the 1980s, set in glitzy, glamorous and blood-soaked Miami, this is a dazzling, dangerous slice of American gangster cinema, that recalls Scorsese's true crime classics Goodfellas and Casino, and boasts a fantastic lead performance from Travolta, at his charismatic best as a construction boss who moves to Florida and becomes involved with a potential lethal pastime of racing speedboats, and the even more lethal local mob.
An assured directorial debut from Jodi Scurfield, beautifully shot by Pulp Fiction cinematographer Andrzej Sekula, the film boasts a sterling roster of supporting talent, including Katheryn Winnick from the hit TV show Vikings, Stranger Things' Matthew Modine as President George Bush Senior, James Remar (Django Unchained) as organised crime boss Meyer Lansky, Tom Sizemore (Heat) as a washed-up hoodlum, and Kellan Lutz from the Twilight films.
Strap yourselves in for a wild ride of corruption, high speed boats, sex, drugs and double-crossing!
