You don’t see too many martial arts flicks coming out of Germany, but accomplished stunt man Mike Moeller aims to change that. With a list of stunt credits that include “Resident Evil”, “Coweb”, “Speed Racer”, and the upcoming “Pound of Flesh”, Moeller made both his directorial and leading man debuts with 2012’s “Urban Fighter” aka “Arena of the Street Fighter”. Now, he’s back in action with the upcoming release of “One Million K(l)icks”.
Moeller, who also served as one of the producers, portrays the film’s leading character Michael, who finds himself coerced into participating in the world of underground fights streamed on the internet.
The action choreography seen in the trailer is absolutely blazing, and Mike Moeller’s sheer intensity is easily the equal of Tony Jaa or Yayan Ruhian. Like them, he’s constantly surrounded by a circle of enemies who tower over him like giants, and like them, he puts to rest the age-old nonsense that smaller fighters are nothing to be intimidated by. Not too many action stars have gotten a thumbs up from Don “The Dragon” Wilson and Isaac Florentine simultaneously!
“One Million K(l)icks” will be released later this year.
