Star­ring Karl Ur­ban, Sofia Ver­gara. Di­rec­tor Bobby Moresco.

The TV Guide - - DVD RELEASES -

Karl Ur­ban is a trend­ing Hol­ly­wood name these days, and he car­ries this rou­tine noirish crime drama al­most sin­gle-hand­edly. He plays a tough, em­bit­tered ex-cop look­ing for the man who set him up in a bloody, ruth­less ram­page typ­i­cal of the re­venge genre. No Os­car here, but the man who played Short­land Street’s first gay char­ac­ter in the 90s has de­servedly come a long way. It’s worth not­ing that Andy Gar­cia is rel­e­gated to a sup­port­ing role.
