Mel Gibson returns after a 7 year acting absence, as a detective Tom Craven, who is investigating the death of his activist daughter. In that meantime, he soon learns that she was hiding a secret that had to do with a corporate cover up.

Rated R for strong bloody violence, and language. 108 min.

Oscar chances ? Not with a January release date, but from the trailer I saw looks like a solid, taut crime thiller.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
