Performers, Cast and Crew:
Chance Templeton (Rick Yune of THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS) has every reason to be angry. At a young age he learned to channel the pain of witnessing his parents' grisly murder through an intense mentorship with a professional hitman (THE THING's Keith David). Ever since, he's been a remorseless contract-killing machine. But when his latest hit turns out to be the pop singer whom his dear adopted brother (Bokeem Woodbine) has been assigned to protect, Chance finally comes across a kill he can't make. Now the bounty is on the heads of Chance and the ones he loves, and, if he wants to make it out alive, he must use his lethal skills against the underworld that bestowed them to him. THE FIFTH COMMANDMENT is an emotionally wrought action-extravaganza penned by Yune himself.
After witnessing the brutal murder of his parents as a young boy, Chance Templeton (Rick Yune - THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS, DIE ANOTHER DAY)
is taken in by a ruthless killer (Keith David - DIRTY, CRASH) and raised to follow in his footsteps. An assassin's trade is solitary by nature, but Chance shares a tight bond with his adopted brother, Miles (Bokeem Woodbine -
TV's "SAVING GRACE," RAY), who's elected a more honorable path working as a bodyguard for a sultry pop star (Dania Ramirez - TV's "HEROES").
When Chance is contracted to gun down his brother's client, he realizes there is finally a line he cannot cross. Uniting with his brother to stave off an expected hit, Chance finds himself targeted by the elite members of his own profession as he struggles to protect a woman who stubbornly rejects his services. Set against the steamy backdrop of Bangkok, this action thriller is bursting with some of the meanest stunts and fight scenes. This is high-octane action at it's best.
