A former Marine and ex–FBI agent, Joe has seen one too many crime scenes and known too much trauma, and not just in his professional life. Solitary and haunted, he prefers to be invisible. He doesn't allow himself friends or lovers and makes a living rescuing young girls from the deadly clutches of the sex trade. But when a high-ranking New York politician hires him to extricate his teenage daughter from a Manhattan brothel, Joe uncovers a web of corruption that even he may not be able to unravel. When the men on his trail take the only person left in the world who matters to him, he forsakes his pledge to do no harm. If anyone can kill his way to the truth, it's Joe.

  • Artsy Fartsy Gibberish

    By Natey808
    Waste of time. Read the reviews about how this moving got a 7 minutes standing ovation at Cannes. Figures. This movie sucked balls. Incoherent, artsy, action movie with no action. Absolutely no point to this blah blah...
  • Wish I could give this movie less than one star

    One of the worst movies I have ever seen. This movie tries way too hard, yet delivers an hour and a half of nonsense. Don’t waste your time or money on this garbage movie! Oh...and never, ever rely on the critics at Rotten Tomatoes! I don’t know where those clowns come up with their reviews 🤷🏼‍♂️
  • Tried so hard

    By TheMovieGal
    I tried really hard to like this movie. Joaquin Phoenix, as always, delivers a wonderful performance. But, the message of the film is easily lost in the lingering shots and choppy editing. I know the movie has something to say, but it simply didn't translate. That said, I hope this director makes more movies - she is obviously very talented. Would love to see her work with a more fleshed out script.
  • A little weird but I liked it.

    By MaddogSquid
    Very dark with some violence. Strange and weird at times but I enjoyed it.

    Joaquin Phoenix does a solid performance of this not so solid individual! Worthy of watching only once!
  • Well Done

    There are people who have the capacity to appreciate artisticly done cinema and then there are those who have only the ability to enjoy simple action thrillers. I am grateful I have the ability to appreciate artistic subtelty. This is a film for people who have intution and sensitivity.

    Good thing I didn’t buy, should have been paid to watch this. It’s in the Blair witch category. Don’t waste your time or money.
  • Disturbing!

    By bigthangs
    Whoever wrote the script for this movie needs help! This movie is alarmingly disturbing, and just down right depressing!
  • Not sure what Rotten Tomatoes was thinking

    By tekneak
    As per the usual the rotten tomatoes rating lead me astray, there was no great story, everything felt blah and boring in this movie. Don’t waste your time or money
  • Frustrating

    By mdelarosa_45
    So much potential, great acting, really bad story telling... I kept hoping the story would develop, the dialogue would grow, the action would take off. Nothing, it was a waste of time and energy to watch this movie. I seriously want my money back
