Storyline

Tom Hawkins is a single father and high-powered executive who has quickly climbed the corporate ladder. On a brief weekend trip to the mall, his son is kidnapped and subsequently murdered in a ritualistic ceremony. When the authorities inform Tom that they have someone in custody who has confessed to the kidnapping, but not the murder, Tom stops at nothing to find out who is behind the killings and exact his revenge - regardless of what it means for him. Following a brutal courtroom attack on the suspect, Tom is ordered for psychological assessments and therapy. Through his counseling, his deep religious faith, and a series of twists throughout the story, Tom reconsiders whether or not his path of viciousness is the right choice - until the improbable killer is revealed. Only God can control what happens after that... Written by Scarlet Sky Productions

I Felt The Father's Anger
13 September 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tom Hawkins' son was kidnapped then murdered as a sacrifice. His rage and grief was great... he has to make a choice: stay true to his religious beliefs and let the law handle it OR to seek revenge.

Great performances, I could feel the pain and anger that Hawkins was feeling for the loss of his child as well as wanting "true justice" for the crime committed. My heart went out to him.

I won't give anything away but I wondered if FBI Mike Sheehy (James Naughton) was one of the "snakes in the grass" until the very end of the film. Mysterious character to me.

CONFESSION TIME: I thought James Naughton was Tommy Lee Jones in this particular film... I'm sorry but I did. I thought it was Jones "fixed-up". My apologies. I never looked to see who was in the film - just picked it out to watch because it sounded good.

Anyway, great film!! I really enjoyed this dramatic mystery-thriller - it's worth watching! 8.5/10
