Review

John Schlesinger's Eye for an Eye, his penultimate film, could have been an interesting story about vigilante-justice especially the aspect of the self-help group is fruitful had it not been for the fact that the antagonist is nowhere close to a real human being, but rather Kiefer Sutherland in full-blown overacting mode. Ed Harris' work is deserving of a better end product than this arch-typical 1990s genre yarn.
