In 1984 Bernie Getz took matters into his own hands and dispensed vigilante justice on NY subways by shooting people.Originally Posted by canadian_angel;2807723;
So the premise to me wasn't all that implausable, but what got me was that she was traumatized so I could understand her buying the gun, I could understand her self defense actions in the convenience store and on the subway. Where she crossed the line was going after the guy who had custody of his step-daughter. And then the ending was very implausible because the police detective went back on his own honor and word and didn't do what he said he would and protected her.
I don't know, there is a lot of debate we could get into on this. I thought it was a very intense movie. Not the greatest one I ever saw, but not the worst either.
Like my husband said it was a "touchy-feely Death Wish with Jodie Foster".
