review by
Mike Haberfelner

Ever since he has taken down the Gorilla Gang, the most powerful drug cartel in town, cop Mark (Louis Mandylor) has been hailed a hero wherever he goes - by everyone but his own daughter Alisha (Samm Wiechec), as in the aftermath of his action against the gang, his wife/Alisha's mother (Liliana Moreno Reynoso) has been shot dead in a revenge killing. Since then, Alisha has tried to stay out of her dad's hair the best she can, pretty much growing up in boarding schools. But this year she has decided to spend the holidays with her father, even if she makes it clear from day one that she still deeply resents him. Mark tries everything to bond with her after all this years, but he at first fails to find common ground with her. And the fact that ever since his wife's death he's suffering from paranoia doesn't really help things. It's actually his neighbour and best friend Miriam (Lori Pelenise Tuisano) who manages to bridge the gap between them, and when in a few situations where Alisha gets into trouble and her dad helps out without reproaching her, the girl warms up to him slowly but surely. Thing is, Mark's paranoia is by no means unfounded, as the man (Kevin Gage) who has killed his wife is still on the large, and while Mark has so far failed to track him down, it soon becomes clear that the killer hasn't given up on Mark yet and has chosen Alisha as his next victim ...

 

A pretty cool movie that's part suspese piece, part character study, with a strained father-daughter relationship at its heart, carried by well fleshed-out characters embodied by a very competent cast and held together by a directorial effort that's both genre savvy and also shows a lot of heart. And while the script's deliberately slow paced to give the characters enough space to breathe and unfold, scenes of action and suspense and even the occasional jump scare are all placed at all the right spots, making this very decent genre entertainment.
