The film was released on May 15, 2015, in the United States and is rated R for violence and language. The plot revolves around John Alexander (Seagal), a former Special Forces operative turned Episcopal priest who doubles as a vigilante. Alexander lives a quiet life in a small town, providing spiritual guidance to his congregation while secretly carrying out missions to eliminate criminals who have managed to evade justice.

His life takes a dramatic turn when he befriends a young woman named Nadia (Adina Stetcu), who comes to him seeking help after being involved in a hit-and-run accident. Alexander offers to help her while also investigating the case, which leads him down a dangerous path.

He discovers that the perpetrator of the accident is a wealthy businessman named David Lord (Vinnie Jones) who has an army of ruthless enforcers at his disposal. Lord is also involved in human trafficking and drugs, making him a formidable opponent for Alexander.

Alexander is assisted in his quest by his former partner in arms, Chi (Byron Mann), who still works for the government and has access to intel and resources that Alexander needs to take down Lord. The two men work together, fighting a series of epic battles that result in Lord's forces closing in on Alexander's hometown.

Meanwhile, Alexander is also grappling with his own inner demons, forced to confront his past and the violence he has inflicted on others during his time as a soldier. His faith is put to the test as he battles to protect Nadia and bring Lord to justice.

Absolution is a classic action film that showcases Seagal's iconic screen presence as a tough-as-nails hero who is not afraid to take on impossible odds. The film also features a talented supporting cast including Jones, Mann, and Stetcu, who bring depth and emotional resonance to their roles.
