Havoc Has A Simple, Yet Effective Premise That Has Served Gareth Evans Well In The Past

When reporting on the announcement of Havoc, and Gareth Evans’ overall deal with Netflix, Deadline described the film as a story that centers on a bruised detective who must fight his way through the criminal underworld to rescue a politician’s estranged son while also trying to get to the bottom of a conspiracy and survive a drug deal gone wrong.

On the surface, this sounds like a very cut-and-dry plot with elements we’ve seen before: physically (and presumably emotionally) beaten down detective must survive the night, save someone, and stop the bad guys from putting a mysterious plan into motion. But, don’t forget, this is coming from the same guy who took a story about cops swarming an apartment building to take down a drug lord and pretty much changed the way we see action movies with The Raid.
