Synopsis

Riley North (Jennifer Garner) awakens from a coma following the tragic murder of her husband and young daughter. She learns that the men who committed the devastating drive-by shooting are in custody and are linked to the Garcia cartel. As a result, no witnesses are willing to testify against them.

The suspects' lawyer attempts to bribe Riley with a hefty sum of money so she won't identify his clients as the murderers. She refuses and the case goes to court. However, the system she trusts fails her as her testimony is disregarded and the judge declares the evidence insufficient. The suspects are freed. Devastated and frustrated at the lack of justice, Riley disappears for five years.

During that time, she methodically trains her mind and her body and transforms into a deadly assassin, prepared to take on the Garcia cartel herself. On the anniversary of her family’s death, she eludes the forces that prevented justice to be served years before and seeks to avenge the murders with her own personal form of justice.

  • 5 stars "very entertaining movie.... violent ..so don't complain that it is too rough... lots of good characters/plots.... always great to see the bad actors get exactly what they deserve !!"
  • 5 stars "BOOM!!! Jennifer Garner does with a gun what Uma Thurman did with a sword in Kill Bill 1 & 2. Modern spirituality is all about letting go but revenge movies touch something deep in our beings. This is a VERY GOOD one. Mindless entertainment perhaps, but masterfully crafted. Guru Bob says 95/100."
  • 5 stars "The reason reviewers gave it a poor rating is because they said it’s racist because the bad guys are all Latinos. I don’t know what they expect since they are the Mexican cartel. Do they expect to see white or Asian members of the Mexican cartel???"
