BEVERLY HILLS, CA – On November 6th the forecast predicts a downpour of bullets and a thunderstorm of fists moving in with Anchor Bay Films’ voracious action/thriller Maximum Conviction.

When former black ops operative Tom Steele (Steven Seagal) and his partner Manning (Steve Austin) are assigned to decommission an old prison, they must oversee the arrival of two mysterious female prisoners. Before long, an elite force of mercenaries assault the prison in search of the new arrivals. As the true identities of the women are revealed, Steele realizes he’s caught in the middle of something far bigger than he had imagined. Fists will fly and bones will shatter as the situation escalates with every passing minute.
