THE SYSTEM FAILED. SHE WON’T.
After the murder of her husband and little girl, Riley North (Jennifer Garner) goes off the grid… until she comes back years later, prepared to exact revenge against those responsible. The director of Taken (2010) presents another character who develops a special set of skills and employs them in brutal ways against those who have wronged her. Basically, this is a simple Death Wish retread conceived without much imagination, but this time with a female lead. Garner is fine as the woman with nothing left to lose, but a mere gender switch is not enough when you have nothing else to bring to the table.
2018-U.S. 101 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Pierre Morel. Cast: Jennifer Garner (Riley North), John Gallagher, Jr. (Stan Carmichael), John Ortiz (Moises Beltran), Method Man, Richard Cabral, Annie Ilonzeh.
