When the case against Robert Doob, the perpetrator, is dismissed because of a technicality, she starts following him and sees how he checks out his next victim, a woman he delivers groceries to. She tells the police, but is only warned she must stop following Doob. When she tries to warn the woman, she is shooed out of the house. Doob, having found out that Karen is following him, threatens to do something to her youngest daughter. She then seeks help from a group of vigilantes connected to a support group, in order to shoot Doob. However, a friend from the support group turns out to be an FBI agent investigating the very vigilante activity Karen is involved in and warns her that she will go to jail for the rest of her life unless it is self-defense. In the meantime, tension grows between Karen and her husband Mack, because he finds out she has secretly been taking self-defense classes and has been learning how to use a gun. When Doob makes another victim and is again released for lack of evidence, she finds a way to lure him into her house and kill him in self-defense.
Plot: It’s fire and brimstone time as grieving mother Karen McCann takes justice into her own hands when a kangaroo court in Los Angeles fails to convict Robert Doob, the monster who raped and murdered her 17-year-old daughter.

The ‘Flying Nun’ Goes ‘Death Wish’
Before the hit television show “24,” Keifer Sutherland played mostly despicable, evil characters. That’s what he does in this film, as “Robert Doob,” a low-life who rapes and kills Sally Field’s daughter and then is unfairly released by the courts. Sally, playing “Karen McCann,” goes after justice.
Almost everyone loves a revenge story and that, of course, is what this movie is, pure and simple: kind of a female “Death Wish.”
As for the characters, Sutherland is “over the top” with his guy – way, way past despicable, so ridiculously bad and evil you might even laugh.
For those who picture Sally Field as “The Flying Nun,” this movie will be a shock. She is anything but the sweet, wholesome-looking girl she appeared to be in so many of her films when she was younger…..or even the new TV commercials of today. Even though she has shown she can be very foul- mouthed (‘m talking ‘real life’), somehow seeing her portrayed here as a vigilante, doesn’t ring up. Charles Bronson, yes; Sally Field, uh…..no.
Be warned: this is a tough movie in spots, especially in the beginning. It is very similar to the opening in “Death Wish,” and is not for the squeamish.
This isn’t a bad movie. It is extremely manipulative and has a bunch of plot holes, but if you love revenge films and don’t care about particularly intelligent scripts (although the mad-as-hell mom isn’t stupid in here), you can just add this one to your library. It serves its purpose of entertaining.
A dreadful excuse for a drama
I went into this film with no expectations poor or positive. I am, however, a person who does not believe Sally Field deserves her acclaim and finds her to be a good deal overrated. Is she a bad actress? Over the top, maybe, but I would not use the term ‘bad’. At least not until I saw this.
The film is about a woman who calls her teenage daughter from a traffic jam and, as they are talking, she hears her daughter being attacked. The girl is raped and killed. This already brings me to the first issue with the film, as well as with Sally Field’s acting. For starters, there may have been an issue with hanging up the phone due to the daughter not hitting ‘end’ back then, I am not up to date on how cell phones worked in the mid-90’s. However, why did she never attempt to hang up and call 911 on the phone in her hand? Comfort does not mean as much as life, and every second counts.
There is also the fact that, other than two brief scenes, I never once felt like Sally’s character cared a thing for her daughter. She never acts sad or distraught over her daughter’s death, and only comes off as either indifferent or offended, as if someone had stolen property from her and given her a reason to be defensive over herself. I understand denial and hysterics, but at a certain point the family members of victims of such crimes do end up breaking down and, in nearly every case, lose track of life and shut down partially. There is even a moment when a woman tells Sally she needs to stay strong for her youngest daughter, despite the fact that she is the least upset person at the entire memorial. She seems to use her daughter’s death as an excuse to be illogical, hysterical, and hateful but never once gave me a reason to feel bad for her, when I should normally be able to without much expression at all.
The film’s villain is also abysmal. He behaves like an overly cartoon-like fiend who lives for no reason other than to do mischief (it is bad when I can use this word accurately about a rapist/murderer in a serious drama). I was honestly waiting for him to get hold of Sally Field and tie her to the railroad tracks by the third time he laughed deviously and did another random, senseless act of naughtiness. The man rapes and kills two people for certain, as well as pours hot coffee on a dog and urinates through a woman’s fence, and somehow managed to not only make none of this seem overly malicious or cruel, but almost like a child trying to get attention.
Every character is unbelievable and ridiculous, except for perhaps the two victims who are seen so briefly each. The police officer defies logic at every turn and when he actually does decide to do something, it is not only at the wrong time but in a way that in most cases he would have been fired for his actions. He assaults a man who has been legally dismissed of all charges, simply on suspicion. This includes holding a gun to his head. Plenty of witnesses saw and heard the assault, and one word from any of them and he would be turning in his badge and completely useless to anyone. This may have been his true goal, though, as without such a useless officer on the force they may actually get something done. Now just to deal with the idiots handling the evidence.
The finale of the film is absurd, not due to the plot but simply because of how it is delivered. At one point Sally Field has the killer at gunpoint, easily six feet away minimum, and has plenty of opportunity and logical reason, as well as every intent, to shoot and kill him. This was her plan, to kill the man while under legal conditions. Instead, she waits around for literally no reason and somehow allows him to ram his entire body into her before she can do so much as to pull the trigger once. She is then knocked down the stairs and lands on her back at the bottom, and though the gun is lying only a few inches away from her in plain sight to both of them, this for some reason did not seem threatening to the killer who idly strolls down the stairs taunting her. No shock to anyone, she grabs the gun and fires repeatedly into his torso, not missing a single time. Strangely, he seems bewildered by these events and does not understand how the woman lying only a few inches away from a loaded gun shot him while he taunted her and slowly moved in for the kill.
I will not even discuss the “Vigilante Group”, that is simply something you will have to see yourself, or be glad you are not aware of.
Plain and simple, this film is entirely unbelievable, every attempt at inducing any sort of emotion is a miserable failure, and it will make you wish you had two hours of your life back. How so many people seemed to have liked this disturbs me.
I would recommend this to only an enemy.
