Avengement ★★★★

Johnson's been refining his work now over an incredible run of innovative, idiosyncratic features, and he's finally really nailed it I think. The shifting chronology, the moral conundrum, the clunky verbosity, and don't forget the relentless, tangibly fleshy brutality...they all come together here. Adkins has been steadily claiming territory too, and as such this is another step up for him as a performer and actor. These two have become such a formidable team, the ultimate DTV auteurs.
