Who’s up for an action thriller where a special forces squad is trapped in an automated military prison that may or may not be haunted? Armed Response is giving us just that, with a cast comprised of Wesley Snipes, Anne Heche, David Annable, and WWE’s Seth Rollins. If that last name made you wonder whether or not this is a WWE Studios production, the answer is an affirmative. The film is also co-produced by Gene Simmons (yes, THAT one) and is directed by actor-turned-director John Stockwell (Into the Blue, Turistas), so it certainly carries an interesting pedigree.
A team of special forces soldiers approach the designer of a high-tech military compound to investigate the disappearance of another team guarding the facility. The compound, known professionally as a Temple, is an artificial intelligence powered facility designed for interrogating high level prisoners. Upon entering the Temple, the soldiers quickly find the earlier team horrifically slaughtered but no evidence as to who is responsible.
Almost immediately, the crew begins to experience strange and horrific supernatural phenomena as they attempt to uncover who killed the previous team. Soon enough, they find a lone survivor, a dangerous terrorist who may hold the key to who killed the soldiers. But as the story goes on, we’ll learn that there’s more to it than we’ve been told and a dark secret the soldiers share may hold the key to surviving The Temple.
Armed Response is the latest action film from WWE Studios. It is directed by John Stockwell, from a screenplay by Matt Savelloni. The picture is produced by Michael J. Lusi and Gene Simmons. The film stars Wesley Snipes. Anne Heche, David Annable, Seth Rollins, Mo Gallini, and Gene Simmons.
Armed Response arrives on VOD and in select theaters on August 4th.
