Owing some money to some bad men, Harry (Pestos) finds his dog, Jolly, dead when he can’t pay up. He sets about avenging his best friend’s death, with the help of his cousin Cecil (Isaac).
May I direct your gaze to that cast list above. Look at it. That’s an exemplary set of names – a heap of in demand dramatic, comedic and method actors. It’s Revenge For Jolly!’s main pull, especially with Oscar Isaac in the supporting role, fresh off the critical success of Inside Llewyn Davis. The film will be noticed, but you can’t expect a great deal of praise coming off that word-of-mouth. Sadly, that cast cannot inject any life into Brian Petsos’ lacklustre script.
Who doesn’t love a good revenge movie? From the likes of Charles Bronson in Death Wish to Camille Keaton in I Spit on Your Grave, revenge movies have been a staple of “the movies” for years. But there’s never been a revenge movie quite like Revenge For Jolly!

Therefore it makes sense to build a revenge thriller around the murder of a dog, as every viewer will be able to root for the hero of the film. At least, that’s how it should be. If Revenge For Jolly! teaches us one thing, it’s that a surprisingly horrific act can result in absolutely no feeling and absolutely no involvement in a star-filled but messy and empty dark comedy. That’s a self-labelled ‘dark comedy’ by the way, as the humour seems to be non-existent.
