OUR RATING: ★★★☆☆
Action thriller directed by Pierre Morel which centers on Riley North (Jennifer Garner), whose husband and daughter are killed in a drive-by shooting by members of a cartel. When the system frustratingly shields the murderers from justice, and the killers walk free owing to corrupt officials on the cartel’s payroll, Riley takes matters into her own hands and seeks vigilante justice against those who destroyed her life. She spends years in hiding, honing her mind, body and spirit to become an unstoppable force, eluding the underworld, the LAPD and the FBI, as she methodically delivers her personal brand of justice.
