When a Dallas man is murdered in a gay-bashing incident, his boyfriend teams up with the victim's mother to bring the killer to justice—at any cost. This melodrama by writer-director Tommy Stovall has a good premise, but he undercuts it with contrived plot twists, pedestrian pacing, and mostly two-dimensional characters. Ironically the video's most electrifying performances come from the bad guys: Chad Donella as the gay couple's homophobic, sexually repressed neighbor (a prime suspect) and the superb Bruce Davison as a hate-mongering preacher reminiscent of Topeka pastor Fred Phelps. 106 min.
