Visually striking but routine revenge thriller about a cop (a stolid Mark Wahlberg) hunting through a snowy New York for the killer of his wife and child two years earlier—with the aid of a Russian mob moll (Mila Kunis) and his old mentor on the force (Beau Bridges)—but finds himself implicated in murder. Crisp cinematography and a sleek production design are about the only redeeming features of director John Moore's videogame adaptation, an alternately dull, predictable and frequently violent narrative, with a mythological Norse demon thrown in for good measure. Pervasive if nongraphic violence with killings and torture, crude language and profanity, drug references and brief sexuality. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L—limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13—parents strongly cautioned; some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
