Sometimes I think vigilante dramas would be more tolerable if they were pure violent payback, without all the moral grandstanding about our flawed criminal justice system. But of course people need a small side salad so they can feel good about their slab of beef. This debut feature by writer-director Michael Morrissey centers on a Brooklyn high school student (Caleb Steinmeyer) who saw his mother murdered in a carjacking ten years earlier and now prowls the city looking for street scum to punish. His counterpart is a young homicide detective (Zulay Henao) who suspects him but—wouldn't you know it?—begins to question the law after a dangerous criminal she apprehended gets off easy in a plea bargain. Visually and rhetorically, this is indistinguishable from a network cop show.
