Absolutely outstanding!
26 June 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

John Doe: Vigilante is an amazing film.

I will begin by saying that I am generally more interested in lower budget films compared with big budget blockbusters so I may be a little biased. However I feel some of the reviews I have read online for John Doe are incredibly unfair.

The subject matter dealt with in John Doe was addressed in a highly effective way. The film was able to make a situation, seemingly out of the realm of possibility for most of us seem as if it were unfolding in reality.

This film is not just an excuse for glorified violence and bloodshed. It makes a powerful statement about the ineffectiveness of the Australian Justice System.

I felt so strongly after watching that I immediately went to the website and chose to review the film (firsts for both).

If you like to think about what you are watching, both during and after then be sure to check out John Doe: Vigilante. There are some fairly confronting images used without being obscene.

I am a film student in Australia and am genuinely inspired by this film and highly recommend it.
