Come 26 August, 76-year-old Sylvester Stallone will be the next legendary star to become a superhero in the Amazon Original Samaritan. The film is directed by Julius Avery (Overlord) and stars Stallone as the world’s greatest hero who vanished 25 years ago.
The movie’s synopsis is as follows:
Thirteen-year-old Sam Cleary (Javon “Wanna” Walton) suspects that his mysteriously reclusive neighbor Mr. Smith (Sylvester Stallone) is actually the legendary vigilante Samaritan, who was reported dead 25 years ago. With crime on the rise and the city on the brink of chaos, Sam makes it his mission to coax his neighbor out of hiding to save the city from ruin.
How to watch if it doesn’t show up in your app (without using a VPN)
You’ll of course have to be an Amazon Prime member to watch the movie. However, depending on where you live, the film might not be available for viewing. If you live in Singapore, doing a search for “Samaritan” on the Prime Video app or via PrimeVideo.com would turn up no results.
If that’s the case, you might still be able to watch it without the need of a VPN, and here’s how:
- Open up your web browser on your PC and head to Amazon.com (instead of PrimeVideo.com).
- Log in to your Amazon Prime Account.
- The only caveat is you can only watch it on your PC and not on your TV or mobile device via the Prime Video app.
- Come 26 August, if you are met with a “This video is currently unavailable”, then you’ll need to use a VPN (see below) to access it instead.
Use a VPN to watch it
That leaves you with only one best working option, signing up for a VPN service such as ExpressVPN. Perhaps one of the most well-known of the VPNs on our guide, ExpressVPN has been the top in a number of VPN ranking lists over the past few years and there is a good reason for that.
The VPN is powered by TrustedServer technology, which was built by ExpressVPN to ensure that a user’s online activity is never logged down. This was put to the test when a server seizure in 2017 turned up zero information, proving ExpressVPN’s “Zero Log” policy to be true. Not only that, but ExpressVPN is also one of the fastest VPN out there, with an average speed of 106 Mbps, meaning it is more than capable of effortlessly streaming that 4K show you wish to watch.
Samaritan will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on 26 August.
