A Soul in Torment
13 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ron Perlman, a special forces soldier, now working in civilian life, has become a pawn in the game of some government people who are trying to retrieve a black box containing a biological weapon. The problem is that they don't know who took it. Just that Perlman was shot at point blank range and someone in the unit is responsible. We suffer with the poor man as he is put through hell at a job, the death of his wife, and estrangement from his daughter. He sees people from his group but when he confronts things, they disappear. The reason is that he is lying in a research facility and his mind is being manipulated. They need to return him to the place where the shooting occurred so he can see the face of the perpetrator. His fixation on the daughter he betrayed before his army training has pushed out everything else from his mind. This is a pretty good episode with Ron Perlman showing what a fine actor he is.
