Stratton is a 2017 British action thriller film directed by Simon West. Principal photography on the film began on 15 July 2015 in Brindisi, Italy. On 3 November 2014, it was announced that Henry Cavill would be next star in the action thriller film Stratton. The film producing by Ileen Maisel and Lawrence Elman who also bought the film rights to the novel would set in Southern Italy, Rome, and London.
Stratton is trying to start a Bond- or Bourne-esque franchise with Dominic Cooper as the titular UK Special Boat Service agent. One might think that the SBS would afford a unique take on the government agent versus bad guys formula, but in practice, the film doesn’t aspire to anything more than the same trite story we’ve seen a million times in this genre. It doesn’t help that the film looks ludicrously cheap to pretend at being an action heavy. Cinematography and editing are nigh incomprehensible during gunfights and car chases.
This most complex of missions goes spectacularly wrong however and in the mayhem, Marty is mortally wounded. Stratton knows his trusted friend isn’t going to make it. All its Drama its revenge will see in this movie, and it is scheduled to be released on 5 January 2018.
