The low-budget action thriller is a popular genre that attracts enthusiastic talent who know what their equally enthusiastic audience want. I Am Vengeance: Retaliation writer/director Ross Boyask has a solid background in the genre and here he presents a follow-up to his first John Gold movie, 2018's I Am Vengeance. Former WWE wrestler Bennett is once again a strangely compelling presence as Gold, who has more a lumbering confidence than a swagger as he steadily strolls from fight to fight. The plot is paper thin, but sets off quickly on its path of fun fights and explosive action.

While mainstream action movies often sideline female characters, the low-budget action thriller has never had a problem with strong, kick-ass women, and I Am Vengeance: Retaliation is no different. Actors and stunt performers Katrina Durden and Phoebe Robinson-Galvin go all out with their fights, and Durden's assassin Quaid is on top in every situation throughout the movie. The action scenes are unashamedly full on and Boyask maintains a sense of humor throughout. With I Am Vengeance: Retribution, the enthusiastic team give everything expected of them and more.
