Dragged Across Concrete
- 2h 39min
- Directed by: S Craig Zahler
- Cast: Mel Gibson, Vince Vaughn, Laurie Holden, Tory Kittles
- UK release: 19 April 2019
Henry (Kittles) is an ex-con who finds himself in conflict with disgraced lawmen Ridgeman (Gibson) and Lurasetti (Vaughn). It’s an epic grindhouse thriller with multiple exploding craniums but Gibson is on his best form for years, and Zahler will one day make a classic in the Don Siegel vain, even if this patchy but compelling number isn’t quite it.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
