An exhilarating action-thriller, where man faces off against his own nature with stakes raised to a knife’s edge.
A stage three cancer diagnosis leaves deaf and mute Johnny with little to lose when he is lured into a deadly underground social experiment. Funded by the uber rich, it pits fighters against one another in a test of animalistic aggression and adrenaline. Johnny’s fight to the top is brutal, fueled by the sole desire to exact revenge on the man who caged him in.
Action star Sunny Pang delivers up pulsating bouts of violence in director Gavin Lim’s gritty revenge flick, supported by scene-stealing turns from Mediacorp heartthrob Andie Chen, TV star Rosalind Pho and Japanese temptress Anri Okita. Peeling back the layers of the dark, bitter soul of man isn’t always pretty, but Lim infuses the shadowy instincts of Diamond Dogs with a relentless energy that will leave audiences breathless.
