Eschewing the gaudy pyrotechnics of the superhero genre for a more intense and dramatic approach to its conventions, this involving thriller follows the story of a high school student (Caleb Steinmeyer) who becomes obsessed with avenging the murder of his mother. While prowling the streets of Manhattan and striking out violently as a vigilante, he comes into contact with a detective (Zulay Henao) who takes an interest in his dark past. With James Russo, Tracy Middendorf. 97 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; "making of" featurette.
