Hutch Mansell is a mild-mannered and unassuming man, whose wife, son, and in-laws all think he is a loser. When two people break into his house, Hutch can no longer suppress his violent past. This story about a man who goes out to kill bad guys is not much of a stretch for Derek Kolstad, who also scripted the John Wick series. However, this short and snappy but highly implausible action movie features a hero who is a fallible and vulnerable everyman (Bob Odenkirk cast against type). The villains are mere caricatures.
