Good Story line that was well directed
17 September 2007 | by wildman-26See all my reviews

This is a story about the struggle of a man to let good prevail over the evil in his life.

Without giving away the story, here are a few observations of "Vengeance" from my viewpoint.

The cast was terrific. Danny Romo (the main character) is excellent. He plays a wide range of emotions in the film. From the worst bad guy to a caring father. He makes the transitions from bad guy to good guy believable. He connects well with all of the characters especially his daughter in the film, Erlinda Orozco. Raul Julia, Jr and Damon Whitaker also are very convincing in their roles.

One of the best scenes is when Romo learns of some tragic news. He is very believable with his emotions.

What makes a movie good for me is if it can "jump" from the screen and capture my attention.

One thing that has always annoyed me about some film critics is they forget to ask the most vital question, was the film entertaining.

"Vengeance" was very entertaining and real for me.

What brings about a good film is the screenplay. But if you do not have a good director the project is doomed.

"Vengeance" director, Daniel Zirilli, did an excellent job bringing the script to life. The storyline is easy to follow because of the direction this film has.

Many years ago I wrote a column reviewing music. I wrote about the songs of course, but I would also delve into the quality of the production. This can make or break a record. The same is true of films. "Vengeance" was good and entertaining because Zirilli brought it all together. He brought it to life.

I would highly recommend "Vengeance", a good story with a good message with terrific actors brought together by a great director.

Happy Viewing, Bill Shaffer
