Anchor Bay Films is bringing an all new action film pitting together Steven Seagal, Ving Rhames and Danny Trejo on December 17th. This synopsis sounds all sorts of crazy. Seagal is playing an old school mob boss and Danny Trejo the leader of a cartel. The film seems like its going to follow martial arts superstar Bren Foster however. I’m kinda hoping this film isn’t super serious, and goes all out to be as crazy as it possibly can. Its probably really low budget and playing stuff very pulpy and over the top may just be the best way to go. And if Seagal can ham and mug it up, even better. More in depth details follow below.

FORCE OF EXECUTION
Hitting The Mark on Blu-ray™/DVD Combo and DVD December 17, 2013
BEVERLY HILLS, CA – For Mr. Alexander, crime was a business to be conducted with honor and respect. But, like the saying goes, “there is no honor among thieves.” And when that honor is challenged and tested, much more than a reputation is at stake! With guns a-blazing, Anchor Bay Films announces the December 17th release of Force of Execution, starring action legends Steven Seagal (“True Justice,” Maximum Conviction, Machete), Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction, the Mission: Impossible films), world champion martial arts superstar Bren Foster (Maximum Conviction) with Danny Trejo (Machete, Machete Kills,“Sons of Anarchy).
In the film directed by Keoni Waxman and written by Richard Beattie & Michael Black, Seagal stars as mob kingpin Mr. Alexander, an old-school boss who rules his criminal empire with both nobility and brutality. For a simple prison hit, he sends his best enforcer and protégé Roman Hurst (Foster). But when the hit goes wrong, Hurst is forced to pay the price of his “failure:” banishment in the city that he almost once ruled. But a war is brewing for the soul of the city between Alexander, a cold-blooded gangster known as ‘The Iceman” (Rhames), and a merciless Mexican cartel. Hurst, with the help of an ex-con restaurant owner (Trejo) who has a few hidden moves of his own, will rediscover his own will to survive the coming conflict…and to wreak vengeance on those who have wronged him.
The lines have been drawn in the sand. The fuse is lit. And in a citywide massacre measured in pain, fear, and revenge, the ultimate power belongs to the FORCE OF EXECUTION.
