It's Ben Lettieri To The Rescue In The New Trailer For THE LIBERATOR
There’s no denying the impression left here that actor and martial artist Ben Lettieri is all about keeping it simple and entertaining for his latest upcoming U.K. martial arts flick, The Liberator. You may know what I mean if you managed to get a glimpse of last year’s mid-production trailer, brimming with its fair share of mild silliness, comedic cheese and watchable action. However, if you didn’t, then you’re in luck, because a new trailer is out and guarantees exactly what it presents with no apologies.
Have you ever felt like life was pushing you aside? As if your purpose was fulfilled? Ben Silver did.
Once a British Special Forces soldier, he became the youngest man ever to receive the Victoria Cross for acts of gallantry on the front line. Ben was honourably discharged, received his 15 minutes and then left to ponder a career in politics.
Sounds like a pretty fulfilling life, right? Well, not for Ben. You see, he’s not a talking man, he’s an action man! The concept of a life behind a desk just doesn’t bode well to an adrenalin junkie with a self confessed addiction for energy drinks. He knew he had to do something else, but that’s not the only reason why.
There’s a deeper element to Ben that drives him forward every day, the legacy of his parents. His father, a former SAS soldier and his mother, a world champion martial artist, were both killed when Ben was 15. It was during crossfire in South America when trying to help a friend in need. He now lives in honour of what they died for, risking his life on a daily basis as a secret mercenary for hire in the guise of a private investigator who only helps those in real need. This brings us to his current case.
Ben’s strong morals are tested when he agrees to help the beautiful Melinda Page, a reformed cat burglar, now manager of a respectable museum who has ironically been burgled herself. He must retrieve a priceless Ming Dynasty vase from the ruthless and eccentric London based con-man/gangster Mr Miller.
With the help of his elderly mentor Dr Nigel Carter and undercover cop Daniel Stevens, all seems almost routine for Ben, except for one small detail, he only has a few hours to get the vase back before it is shipped overseas to black market buyers, never to be seen again. Not to mention the fact that Miller is not planning on sitting back and just letting Ben do his thing. Rolf, Ben’s arch rival, is hired to take care of him before he can even get close to the vase.
The race and the chase are most definitely on! Will our courageous hero succeed in his mission, or will his brash actions be outwitted?
