Almost Mercy is a revenge movie, with plenty of gore.
19 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

However, the protagonist, Emily, expresses deep disgust at the idea of mass murdering people whose 'crime' was simply having failed to protect her and Jackson. The movie does the opposite of glorifying that kind of self-indulgent, egotistical viciousness.

The second time the movie flashes back to the when Emily and Jackson first met as children shows an additional bit that brings the nature of the basis of their relationship into sharp focus while also showing the cold reality about Emily. Watch for it. If you understand that, you'll get the movie.

The ending was also good.

I agree with those who say Almost Mercy is a dark comedy, but don't expect any laughs.
