It all came from a simple idea:
Who wouldn't want to see a bunch of Wall Street scumbags get their asses kicked?
Our hero, Sam, a down on his luck black teacher, finds himself trapped on a mid-construction office floor with four young Bernie Madoffs after finding out they're running a Ponzi scheme with cancer charities.
Sam soon realizes the only way he can escape is to fight his way out, and it all comes down to a bloody, brutal fight to the death.
Can Sam take it to the one percent, or will he be just another victim?
WHY THE 99?
Cheap to produce.
Seriously, come on.
I mean... what the fuck?
SAY HELLO THE BAD GUYS
The country may be divided, but everyone will want to see these Wall Street scumbags get the shit kicked out of them.
Representing the greed, sloth, and depravity of the corrupt in power, these Armani-wearing assholes are the villains everyone will love to hate.
When was the last time you cheered when a villain got socked in the face? Kicked in the balls? Thrown through a window? Every time Sam lands a blow on one of the fuckhead four, the audience will cheer with delight.
It's the ultimate escapism, a cathartic experience where Sam represents all of us, fighting against a corrupt system designed to keep him down, and knocking that system straight on its ass.
