Mayhem poster

Derek Cho works at a corporate law firm, where anything is sufficient to make the place explode. That happens in the form of a mysterious virus, that turns feuds into bloodbaths and office crushes into orgies. Derek teams up with a lawyer to execute his revenge on his boss. The Raid meets The Wolf of Wall Street, turned up to eleven.

Joe Lynch follows up his revenge drama Everly (Imagine 2015) with a cheerful bloodbath. The greatest quality of this film is that it blends corporate satire, low-brow humour, action and sci-fi into a carefree, highly entertaining thrill ride. You simply start rooting for the hero”s and heroine”s revenge on the ruthless corporate moguls. It all plays like a video game with our characters defeating minor bosses on each floor with office appliances to advance further. Mayhem is pure fun and provides us with a great excuse to root and cheer for violence. The Raid meets The Wolf of Wall Street, turned up to eleven.
