More Detail:

RETRIBUTION is an exciting new action thriller starring Liam Neeson as a wealthy bank executive named Matt Turner. Matt’s wife asks him to help with the children and take them to school. He begrudgingly says yes, as he is extremely busy with work. To add to his stress, over the past year he and his clients have lost money.

Matt struggles to get his daughter, Emily, and her older brother, Zach, in the car, but once he does, their day takes a turn for the worst. Matt receives an anonymous phone call that informs him there’s a bomb underneath his seat. If he gets out of the car, calls the cops, or lets his children leave the car, the voice tells him the car will explode.

At the mercy of the anonymous voice, Matt decides to oblige to his requests. The voice forces him to watch one of his work colleagues explode, when his passenger steps outside the car. Soon, Matt realizes that a series of crimes all connect back to him, and it appears to local officials that he’s the sole perpetrator. He continues to obey the anonymous voice, even when it involves his wife.

However, when his two children are put in danger, Matt must make a decision: keep obeying the voice’s violent commands, or take matters into his own hands.

Ultimately, RETRIBUTION is an exciting, fast-paced action thriller that will keep many viewers on the edge of their seats. The performances are compelling, and the action setpieces are riveting and well-crafted.

RETRIBUTION is akin to many of Liam Neeson’s recent action blockbusters. However, RETRIBUTION notably has a strong moral worldview that emphasizes family and sacrifice. It also has some strong themes about redemption and forgiveness. Sadly, these strong positive elements are marred by the movie’s foul language and action violence. MOVIEGUIDE® advises extreme caution due to the use of several f-words, five GD profanities and intense car explosions.
