    In defense of writer/director Gilles Paquet-Brenner, it must take a lot of effort to adapt a dark, twisted Gillian Flynn novel with a big-name cast and somehow end up with something so inept and innocuous that it often feels like a Lifetime movie.

    Congratulations to all involved for making what is perhaps the most pro-revenge movie ever made. Characters not only condone the brutal justice being dished out by Washington, they actively encourage it. As well they should.
