A self-righteous man, head of a household for a single income young family, lost his job but went out daily as if going to work as usual. When his car was repossessed and home set to be foreclosed upon, desperate times call for desperate measures in order to keep his facade going. So far, a familiar premise during recent 2008-2009 Great Recession. The rest of the story set up the film’s moral question on retributive justice for crimes that are committed for the greater good. Don’t look for excitement as “Falling Down 1993” or comedy as “Up in the Air 2009” or complexity as "99 Homes 2016"; this one has only one dimension: bland.

Jason Isaacs and Wes Bentley. Two stars for them, one star for the scenery. Good concept that could have been done much better.

Morality's an illusion. We invented God to stop us taking each other's shit
and beating each other to death with clubs. That stopped working, so now we have cops and guns and the electric chair, prison. It's a bunch of bullshxt. It's fear that keeps us in line.
