John Doe: Vigilante

John Doe: Vigilante (Kelly Dolen, 2014) wr. Stephen M. Coates, prod. James M. Vernon, Kristy Vernon, David Lightfoot, Keith Sweitzer, dp David Parker; Jamie Bamber, Lachy Hulme, Paul O'Brien; crime thriller; no theatrical release in Australia?

Although a bit muddle headed about what tone to adopt and confused about its moral stances, John Doe provides a talking point, if nothing else, about how society should respond to the inefficiencies of a justice system and police effectiveness. The arguments for taking the law into our own hands are persuasive, but the result may well get out of control. Two wrongs.... And all that. Andrew Urban, urbancinefile.
