Stallone is the “Samaritan”

The new action thriller “Samaritan” is directed by  Julius Avery, starring Sylvester Stallone as an aging superhero, now streaming on Amazon Prime Video:

“…’Sam Cleary’ (Javon Walton) suspects his mysterious and reclusive neighbour ‘Mr. Smith’ (Stallone) is actually a legend hiding in plain sight. Twenty years ago, the ‘Granite City’ super-powered vigilante, ‘Samaritan’ was reported dead after a fiery warehouse battle with his rival, ‘Nemesis’. 

" Most believe Samaritan perished in the fire, but some in the city, like Sam, have hope that he is still alive. With crime on the rise and the city on the brink of chaos, Sam makes it his mission to coax his neighbour out of hiding to save the city from ruin…”

 "I love action films that also have heart”, said Stallone, the star of “Rambo” and “Rocky”.
