Dedicated military officers are known for being willing to put their lives at risk in order to defend their ideals and the safety of their country. The intense dedication the soldiers willingly take on in order to complete their missions becomes even more extreme when their enemy is determined to put them in endanger. That fight between adversaries is compellingly showcased in the upcoming action film, ‘Kill Ratio.’ In honor of the movie being released by XLrator Media, Shockya is premiering an exclusive new clip.

XLrator Media is set to distribute ‘Kill Ratio’ in theaters on December 9, before also releasing it on VOD and iTunes on December 13. The film was directed by experienced crime action genre filmmaker, Paul Tanter, and written by Steven Palmer Peterson. The drama stars Tom Hopper, Amy Huberman and Lacy Moore.

The following synopsis for ‘Kill Ratio’ has been released by XLrator Media:

James Henderson is in an Eastern Europe country for a business conference with his inexperienced colleague, Gabrielle, to bring capitalism to the newly democratized republic led by its new president, Tania Petrenko. But the conference, featuring a motley array of sketchy businessmen and oligarchs, is barely underway before the city is rocked by explosions and gunfire. The remnants of the old guard, led by Colonel Lazar, launch an assault on the hotel. The military has staged a coup and is after the President. They will stop at nothing to see her dead or arrested.

Gabrielle talks a reluctant James into helping her hide the President in the hotel, and we realize quickly that James is not what he seems. A series of violent encounters with heavily armed soldiers rampaging through the building reveals his true calling as a CIA “blue list” operative, meaning he has an unlimited license to kill in pursuit of US foreign interests.

The race is on to get the President to broadcast live from the hotel to prove to her people, and the world, that she is still alive. James and Gabrielle seemingly have the upper hand, but are betrayed by an American entrepreneur who would rather being doing business with the old guard than the President. After epic gunfights, explosions and hand to hand battles, James is at last able to get the President on the air.

Support for the rebels collapses and the leader of the coup prepares to flee with his remaining men. But he doesn’t reckon on a final confrontation with James – and only one of them will emerge alive.
