Spinning words into deliberately obscure, ambiguous, and unclear meanings--twisting and bending the truth to exonerate the dregs of society--the silver-tongued defence lawyer and neglectful father, Frank Valera, has made a fortune by distorting words. Dynamic, successful, and on top of his game, Valera will soon see his world crumble, when his wife, Sue, and his young daughter, Olivia, everything he holds dear, fall prey to a sadistic predator. But now, it is too late for tears and remorse, and without a break in the case, Frank decides to take a vow of silence, triggering a gradual but radical transformation. In other words, Frank is hell-bent on making those behind the hideous crime pay; however, does he have what it takes to fulfil his bloody mission of vengeance?Written by

Descent B movie
I've wanted to see the movie since I met Kart Urban in my gym last year, so maybe I am little biased. The premise of the movie is quite good but the story delivery is rather poor - it is like all things are "designed" to happen and not very convincingly. I mean, the animated TV series I watched as a kid (Michel Vaillant for instance) made a whole lot more sense. Acting is alright - Banderas and Urban do the job as much as the script allows them to, the rest is typical B-movie stuff. The main asset of the movie are the fighting sequence which while cheesy are very well choreographed and Banderas is surprisingly good in all of them. All in all, a descent premise and good fight sequences versus poor script and clichéd storyline make it for a good 6 out of 10. It is worth your time as long as you don't take it seriously and consider its low-budget nature.
