After a number of years spent mainly behind the camera, Mel Gibson returned to acting in this gritty revenge drama directed by Martin Campbell ("Casino Royale," "GoldenEye"), who also made the British miniseries the film is adapted from.
Gibson plays a Boston police detective determined to find his daughter's (Bojana Novakovic) killer, initially thinking he was the actual murder target - but he's not so sure, once he starts learning about her secret activities. Ray Winstone is excellent as a specialist in tying up messy loose ends. Danny Huston and Caterina Scorsone ("Alice") co-star. DVD extras: deleted scenes. *** (R: P, GV) (Also on Blu-ray)
