Savage Dog

Synopsis: Indochina, 1959. A Wild West town controlled by the criminal class: Vietnamese warlords and European war criminals. Den-Dhin-Chan Labor Camp is run by four such dangerous men. The worst prison in the land, it is here that a European, former-champion boxer Martin Tilman (Scott Adkins) has made a name for himself fighting tournaments, on which wealthy criminals gamble in high stakes events. When Tilman is due for release, he just wants to return home, but the corrupt forces running the jail will do everything in their power to keep him locked down. When all that Tilman holds dear is taken away in a vicious act of violence, he is forced to confront the five men responsible and take his revenge.

She says you're straight shooter.

When I was inside, she'd

visit every week.

Always bringing flowers

for the Commandant.

You don't know?

God bless her innocent heart.

Give me the picture.

I'll be damned if that old

flesh merchant, Hans Steiner

is her own father.

Take some flowers once a week,

in the hope that he'll sit her

on his knee and kiss her cheek.

He refuses to see her.

Steiner married his

Kong gai, local girl,

whom he later suspected

of deceiving him.

When Isabelle was born, that

gave him sufficient reason to...

deny her.

I was Steiner's valet,

saw the whole thing.

Adopted Isabelle.

She deserves better than either of us.

You ever hurt Isabelle, I'll kill

you fast like a shank of salmon.

And that's damn quick, boy.

There's an old storage shed

out back you can bunk in.

You'll mostly deal with drunks.

Every so often some

lame daft paws a girl.

They get one polite request.

Then, do whatever it takes.


Thank you.

That'll do it.

You know, you're just

like I was in my day.

But you ain't so old,

you can still change your path.

I'm nothing like you.

I'm young, handsome,

and ain't burning this one.

You, son of a bitch!

Well, I have to say...

You're the only person in my whole life

who went out of his way to help me.

I appreciate that.

Even the worst of us wants to be loved,

and for a time,

Martin enjoyed a peace

he'd never known before.

Bow! Valentine! Sweet lil' emoti...

Merry! Sweet lil' emot...

He was a free prisoner,

She was an innocent,

who would watch her injured

patient limp back to life.

It was only natural that they would

develop feelings for each other.

I'm not sure if Valentine lik...

Is that what you believe in?

No, I was never a believer.

I joined the fight because...

My Dad and my brother went ahead of me.
