When Inspector Alice Frampton (Emily Mortiner, Shutter Island) can't convict the thugs who killed Harry's best friend, he decides to take the law into his own hands.  Using skills honed as a Royal Marine, Harry begins to serve his own brand of justice, and no one will stop him.

I saw an ad for this film in the movie listings of my local Sunday newspaper a few weeks ago, and so far it's the only film I've wanted to see this summer, but of course, none of the 86 mondo-mega-plex theaters near me featured it, so I guess it's going to be the DVD for me.
