Since so much of the action flick Acts of Violence, which opens tomorrow at Atlas Diamond Center and will be available on On Demand tomorrow as well, takes place inside warehouses and dark clubs and bars, it’s difficult to recognize much of Cleveland in the movie, even though the film is set here.

The city skyline appears a few times, and the film includes a reference to the Warehouse District, but it could almost be set in almost any Midwestern town.

The plot centers on two guys who must rely on their military training to free their brother’s fiancée (Melissa Bolona) from the clutches of Max Livingston (Mike Epps), a dangerous sex trafficker and gangster (Mike Epps).

Along the way, the brothers enlist the help of James Avery (Bruce Willis), a hard-nosed detective who’s been on the hunt for Max but has had difficulty getting the help he needs to put the man behind bars.



Director Brett Donowho’s previous film, Salvation, won numerous awards at the 2013 Los Angeles Cinema Film Festival of Hollywood.
