The new action thriller “Samaritan” is directed by Julius Avery, starring Sylvester Stallone, streaming August 26, 2022 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”.
“I wanted to be involved with ‘Samaritan’ because this story has many layers that I think people can relate to. It’s something of a morality tale that is also very exciting to watch. We are thrilled that this will be seen globally on Prime Video where my fans and all audiences can enjoy it together around the world."
