Brad Davis, a gifted method actor gone too soon
24 October 2003 | by (Decatur, Ga) – See all my reviews

Vengeance: The Tony Cimo Story, a 1986 CBS fact based movie deals with one man's crusade to seek justice for his murdered parents in a small South Carolina town. This movie would have been a routine, melodramatic crime drama had it not been for four actors. William Conrad, Brad Dourf, the up and coming Michael Beach, and the late versatile thespian Brad Davis. The performers are one of the best joys one would get out of watching this movie.

Michael Beach, who would go on to heat up the screen in films like One False Move, Soul Food, and Waiting to Exhale is the killer in this film of Davis parents. Beach plays a recent New York transplant, who is a trouble maker, that eventual kills the elderly couple. Rudolph Tyner played by Beach commits this vile act while committing a robbery in the couple's rural, owned convenient store. He is later arrested, put on trial, and sentenced to death. The story does not end here.

Brad Davis is the grieving son of the elderly couple murdered, just when it seems like his parents murder will be dealt with through the legal system, many surprises unfold that will not bring about the speedy and fair conclusion of a murder case where the evidence is overwhelmingly against Beach. Brad Davis is the glue that keeps the sole together in this movie. Davis talent is reminiscent of John Garfield, Marlon Brando, James Dean, Montgomery Clift, Rod Steiger, and Tupac Shakur, just heavy weight method acting.

This is a good movie, the producers got a certain moral point across. Justice is not simply had and sometimes people will seek their on form of justice in desperate situations. I give this movie ***1/2, superior. Brad Davis performance is **** excellent. Check it out, it can be seen on late night television.
