French action favorite, actor Jean Reno hasn’t missed a beat throughout his career as it’s peppered with plenty of cult action titles that have drawn him international appeal. For this, it’s obvious that his latest, Antigang – a remake of Nick Love’s 2012 actioner, The Sweeney, will draw similar attention in a role that no less reassures why fans of the action genre probably won’t be passing this one up.
