What did you get for Christmas ? Nothing.
5 December 2010 | by (Kenya) – See all my reviews

That's a dialogue in the film a little boy tells Jeff Douglas (Robert Patrick). He responds solemnly "nothing".

What would you do if your wife and child were murdered by a crimelord? You would take the matter in your own hands.

This is ZERO TOLERANCE a hard as nails revenge plot akin to The Punisher and also the main character is similar to that of Frank Castle.

Plot: After surviving a sneak attack on himself and fellow feds Jimmy (William Steis) and Gene (Michael Gregory) as they transport drug kingpin Raymond Manta (Titus Welliver) out of a Mexican jail, FBI agent Jeff Douglas (Robert Patrick) becomes an uwitting pawn of the White Hand drug cartel.

Raymond tells Jeff as he is being transported to let him go otherwise Jeff's family, which is being held hostage by Raymond's goons, will be murdered. Jeff tells Raymond to give him his word that his family will not be harmed. Raymond gives his word of honor.

Unknown to Raymond, Jeff's family is already dead. When Raymond returns to back to his gang he scolds them for failing to obey his orders. And now Raymond is secretly afraid because he knows Jeff will be coming for him.

You will be very satisfied with this film I assure you. I saw this film back in 1995 or 1996, I can't remember, memories fade. Buy it on DVD if you spot it.

Films similar to this: The Punisher, Collateral Damage, Death Wish, Death Sentence, Johnny Handsome, Mad Max, The Crow.
