Five years after her husband and daughter are killed in a senseless act of violence, a woman comes back from self-imposed exile to seek revenge against those responsible and the system that let them go free.
An unidentified woman is engaged in a brutal fight with a man in a car and finally dispatches him with a shot to the head. Five years earlier, the same woman, Riley North, is working as a bank teller in Los Angeles struggling to make ends meet. Her husband Chris owns a failing mechanic shop. They have a ten-year-old daughter, Carly. Chris' friend tries to talk him into robbing Diego Garcia, a powerful drug lord. Chris turns him down, but not before Garcia has already discovered his involvement and ordered his men to make an example of him. Riley and Chris take Carly out for pizza and to a carnival for her birthday since no one showed up to her party. At the carnival, Carly orders peppermint ice cream. As the family walks to the car, Diego's men gun down her husband and daughter in a drive-by shooting. She is wounded, but survives.
The movie's premise closely resembles the one from Blue Tiger (1994). Since that was a fairly unknown action movie going straight-to-video in most territories, most comments refer to this as a gender-swapped version of Death Wish (1974) or Law Abiding Citizen (2009). See more »
After the lab explosion the scene where the bad guys in the vehicle drive over the exact sewer grate Riley North escapes and exits from, it would be nearly impossible to determine which car to follow at night that had a significant head start well after she commandeers the BMW that just happened to stop. Without some sort of GPS bug or advance knowledge of what they drove, the chase sequence is a "lucky guess." See more »
I can hear the pain in your voice. You're hurting. You're hurting bad. Out-manned, out-gunned. How you really think this is gonna go?
I'm gonna shoot you in your fucking face. And then I'll pretty much figure it out from there.
