Luke (Chase Coleman) hasn't been himself since the murder of his wife (Cathy Rankin), and even his psychoanalyst (Gail O'Grady) isn't sure she can help him ... and then suddenly he's abducted and thrown into a room where he finds himself opposite Galen (Jay Giannone), tied to an electric chair. Now Galen's the man who has been accused of the murder of the murder of Luke's wife, but acquitted due to a technicality - and now a voice only known as Justice wants Luke to have a retrial on his own terms, and there's a button to turn on the electricity in Galen's chair to torture the truth out of him. And as weird as this sounds, the two of them are not alone wherever they are, a few rooms up or down the hallway, Astrid is asked to try the murderer (Lance Henriksen) of her son, and Mia (Denyce Lawton) the killer (Marvin Young) of her boyfriend (Lochlyn Munro). But while this all sounds like some straight-forward torture-to-death exercise, Luke sees beyond simple gratification of some archaic instincts of revenge and starts talking with Galen ... and Galen starts talking sense, bringing up more and more evidence that might prove his innocence - evidence he couldn't bring up in court as it would have incriminated him in other crimes. So ultimately the two develop a kind of trust for one another and decide to break out - but they really have no idea who or what they're up against ...

 

Now admittedly, the premise of Justice Served is very far-fetched and does demand quite a bit of suspension of disbelief - but if one is willing to do that one's rewarded by a pretty cool thriller that plays well on psychological as well as action levels, and that keeps the tension up throughout and is able to surprise the audience thanks to a cleverly constructed script, coupled with a direction that does not give in to spectacle but carries the story instead. And a cast of characters that refuse to be just black or white embodied by a capable cast of actors don't hurt one bit either of course.
