This thrilling movie features a star-studded cast, including Joel Kinnaman (known for his role in “The Suicide Squad”), Scott Mescudi (also known as MaXXXine), Harold Torres (“Run Coyote Run”), and Catalina Sandino Moreno (“Ballerina”).

As the story unfolds, Kinnaman’s character, recovering from an injury that has left him voiceless, embarks on a relentless quest for vengeance, making it his life’s mission to avenge his son’s tragic demise. This quest leads him to undergo a punishing training regimen, setting the stage for a high-octane, action-packed narrative.

Expect nothing less than John Woo’s signature style in “Silent Night,” as the film redefines the action genre with heart-pounding, thrill-a-minute storytelling.

Behind the camera, John Woo directed “Silent Night” from a screenplay penned by Robert Archer Lynn. In addition to directing, Woo also takes on a producer’s role alongside an impressive production team, including Christian Mercuri, Lori Tilkin deFelice, Basil Iwanyk, and Erica Lee.
