Problematic revenge thriller about a rising action star (Cole Hauser) who exacts retribution on the sleazy tabloid photographers (led by Tom Sizemore) responsible for causing a Princess Diana-type car accident which nearly killed his wife (Robin Tunney) and young son. As directed by Paul Abascal, the subtly sadistic film seems more concerned with its sensationalized "Death Wish"-like premise, than with actually saying anything of substance about the public's obscene fascination with celebrities' private lives. The movie's underlying twisted sense of justice is only compounded by its morally troublesome ending. Vigilante violence, murder without consequence and a scene in a strip club, as well as scattered crude language and humor. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
