it tells the story of a man clyde, his wife and daughter. one night two robbers invade his home and brutally kill his wife and daughter, however he manages to survive. the killers are soon caught and somehow make a deal for prison sentence, and he is told that is how the system works. later clyde sees his prosecutor shaking hands with one of the killers, he feels that he is betrayed and the system must be fixed.

ten years later, clyde returns with his master plan to fix the system by starting with murder the killers who killed his family. clyde is put into jail and once again faces with his prosecutor to warn him that either the system is fixed by his method or soon everyone connected with his case will die.

the script is quite interesting and captivating at first, then it falls short. i guess it could be a good grade b movie with a-list stars. especially the end that makes no sense at all. if you want to make a good drama thriller film, take a look at v for vendetta! gerard butler, i will never going to see your movie again ever.
