Sanctioning Evil is a 2022 American action thriller about an ex-soldier employed by a politician to be a vigilante and eliminate criminals.
Directed by Ante Novakovic (Little Ukraine; American Fright Fest; Leaves of the Tree) from a screenplay written by Kyle Travis Sharp, based on a storyline by Lance Sharp.
The movie stars Tobias Truvillion, Zach McGowan, Taryn Manning, Ebony Jo-ann, Chris Tardio, Carrie Kim, Kyle Sharp, Tasha Lawrence, Kresh Novakovic and James Biberi.
Staff Sergeant Reginald Barnes (Tobias Truvillion), a decorated war hero, is dishonourably discharged after four tours of duty when a soldier under his command goes rogue.
Disenfranchised by the very government he served with honour, Barnes is now alone to piece his life back together. However, he finds his way back into society after being recruited by charismatic and ambitious politician Dakota Ambrose (Zach McGowan) and his life is given a new purpose.
As the mission unfolds, Barnes and Ambrose walk a fine line between covert military operations on civilian soil and unsanctioned retribution toward an underground criminal element, all while being tracked by FBI special agent Kensington (Taryn Manning).
In the US, Vertical Entertainment will release Sanctioning Evil theatrically in select locations and On-Demand (VOD) on October 7, 2022.
