LAZARUS (2021) Reviews and overview

 

Lazarus is a 2021 American action film in which a super-powered supernatural vigilante fights an organization to free a city from a crime spree.

Written and directed by R.L. Scott (Bayne; I Think My Babysitter’s an Alien), the Overdog Entertainment, Phoenix Rising Films, Wonder Studios production stars Sean Riggs (Branded; Call Me King), Costas Mandylor (Cosmic Sin; Incision; Saw franchise), Shane Brolly and Nicki Micheaux.

Reviews:

“The film’s supernatural element is sort of like that seen in Timothy Woodward Jr’s schlocky Checkmate, but the execution is vastly more competent (admittedly, that is a super-low bar to clear). It is still the weakest part of Lazarus. However, there are a number of impressively tough and gritty fight scenes, which is really what you want from a film like this.” J.B. Spins
