Skin Trade epic action film with Dolph Lundgren, Tony Jaa, Michael Jai White and more

For my first installment of VX’s epic action film trailers and reviews I give you “Skin Trade”, and you’re welcome. The film tackles the difficult topic of human trafficking and contains a star studded cast. Action super star of Expendables and Universal Soldier fame Dolph Lundgren has written the film along with his team. Making the return to action super stardom is Thailand martial arts sensation Tony Jaa. Fresh off of furious 7 Tony Jaa’s return is better than ever. Ron Perlman provides his skills as a mobster supervilliam. Michael Jai White and Peter Weller also round out the cast. So the trailer is epic, the cast is epic, what’s not to like you ask? Well nothing. Jaa faces off against everyone in the movie performing some of his signature moves of “The Protector”, and “Ong Bak” lore. Dolph has a few more than bad ass shoot out scenes which reminded me of his work in The Punisher and other early classics. While the special effects could have been better, the editing is actually high quality. It was good to see Michael Jai White back in form, and Peter Weller always has a good performance. It was definitely worth the wait, would be interesting to see what else Dolph and Jaa could do together. “Skin Trade’ is out now, and available for rent on itunes, check it out!
