When the gang to whom the drugs belong shows up, Said realizes how truly tough these guys are. Albeit outnumbered, he knows his factory-like no one else. Forced to strike back to protect his daughter Sarah, Said transforms the sawmill into an embattled camp. And as the number of casualties grows, so does the thirst for revenge…

Some reviewers have been able to watch the film early, and said they didn’t expect violent violence. They compared it to a mashup of John Wick and Kevin McAllister. “This is a movie to watch if you are willing for villains who come up with inventive and angry finishes, as they are slowly picked up by one by one.” Critics are giving Earth and Blood a B rating as an action film.
