I’ve pretty much reviewed all of the Nicolas Cage films out on blu-ray. Kill Chain (2019) might be my last of his films for a little while to review. It’s an action thriller set in Columbia. Is it any good? Let’s find out, so without further ado here’s my Kill Chain blu-ray review.
- Kill Chain (2019) – Import
- Genre: Action, Thriller
- Directed by Ken Sanzel
- UK Rating N/A
- Discs: 1
- Released By VVS Films
- Blu-ray Released: N/A
A small hotel in a rundown area of Columbia becomes the gathering place for several criminal elements. Amongst the visitors is a veteran assassin and a woman in red. Meanwhile the hotel owner Araña (Nicolas Cage) seems to be a little out of place.
Style / Direction
Ken Sanzel directed whilst Manuel Castañeda took care of the cinematography. I will say it’s a very stylish film that all revolves around a small hotel in a rundown area. It certainly has a neo-noir look and feel which I absolutely loved. The director also uses lots of aerial shots of the streets surrounding the hotel to track incoming vehicles.
It’s a very well made film, a great piece of filmmaking in my opinion.
Music / Audio Effects
The movie’s score comes from Mario Grigorov and I thought it suited the film well.
Acting / Characters
I thought all the cast, which is small in number, produced excellent performances. Nicolas Cage’s character has you unsure who he really is as do pretty much all of the rest of the cast.
- Nicolas Cage as Araña
- Enrico Colantoni as The Old Sniper
- Ryan Kwanten as Ericson
- Anabelle Acosta as The Woman In Red
- Alimi Ballard as The Curious Assassin
- Angie Cepeda as The Very Bad Woman
Conclusion: Kill Chain (2019) Film Review
Did I enjoy Kill Chain? Absolutely, I love film /neo-noir action thrillers. It’s incredibly stylish in terms of filmmaking, has a compelling story and is well acted. What more could I want from a film.
I recommend giving this one a look if you can obtain it, preferably on bluray.

Conclusion: Kill Chain (2019) Blu-ray Review
Obtaining the film on blu-ray may be the hardest part. However if like me you purchase a foreign version that plays in English on UK players you’re in for a treat. It really shouldn’t be this difficult in 2020 to obtain brand new movies on blu-ray in the UK.
