'I Am Wrath' [Blu-ray + Digital HD]
(John Travolta, Christopher Meloni, Rebecca Demornay, et al / Blu-Ray+Digital HD / R / 2016 / LGF)

Overview: A man is out for justice after a group of corrupt police officers are unable to catch his wife's killer.

Blu-Ray Verdict: Vivian Hill (Rebecca De Mornay) works crunching numbers for the governor of Ohio. The crime rate is down everywhere except for the city of Columbus. Car Manufacture manager Stanley Hill (John Travolta) flies home to Ohio from a job interview. His wife gets toasted in the parking garage, in a city where we have been told, "nothing's random."

After identifying the culprit in a police line up, the cops let the killer walk. Well it seems John worked as "the real ghost stuff" and has a friend (Christopher Meloni) who runs a barber shop and black ops operation in Columbus, Ohio ... I guess due to the high demand! Once you can get past this and the Botox face, the film becomes a decent vigilante movie!

However, that said, Travolta has done much better work as a tough guy, notably in Luc Besson's 'From Paris with Love.' Here he is not given a multi-layered, finely nuanced character and makes little effort to bring new dimensions to a sparsely developed script. The movie is boosted considerably by a couple of the supporting roles. Christopher Meloni steals his scenes as the sidekick/guardian. Sam Trammell's look of boyish innocence cloaks a dark side to his character.

The script was written by Paul Sloan, who also plays the villain Lemi K, and was originally in development with Nicolas Cage set to star and William Friedkin directing, but somehow that fell through. The script seems a couple drafts short of complete. It feels as if it was written with franchise ambitions. The title, Stanley's tattoo and the buddy relationship with Dennis all scream comic hero series. Maybe we'll eventually get it. Maybe we won't. I'm banking on the latter, sadly. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
