Two-time Academy-Award-® winner Sally Field, Kiefer Sutherland and Ed Harris star in this riveting thriller about the search for justice in an unjust world. Karen McCann's (Sally Field) orderly life is shattered when a stranger breaks into her home and murders her 17-year-old daughter. But shock and grief turn into rage and disbelief when the killer (Sutherland) is released on a legal technicality. When he commits another murder - and is set free once again - Karen is determined to make him pay for his crimes. Alienating her husband (Harris) and her friends, Karen quietly and methodically devises a deadly plan for retribution. Directed by Oscar-®winner John Schlesinger (Midnight Cowboy, Marathon Man) and costarring Joe Mantegna and Beverly D'Angelo.
Sally Field stars in this well-crafted revenge thriller. Eye for an Eye follows Karen McCann (Field) after her teenage daughter is raped and murdered. At first, she sinks into depression and paranoia; but, when the killer (Kiefer Sutherland) is caught, then released on a technicality, she becomes obsessed and begins to track him in his neighborhood. Her single-mindedness begins to distance her from her husband (Ed Harris). Finally, when the killer threatens her younger daughter, she decides to take matters into her own hands. Eye for an Eye is not exactly a balanced examination of justice and revenge--Sutherland's killer is a relentless monster--but it does approach the conflict from many points of view, articulated by a superb supporting cast, including Joe Mantegna, Beverly D'Angelo, Charlayne Woodard, Philip Baker Hall, Keith David, and Donal Logue. It's directed with professional skill by John Schlesinger (Midnight Cowboy, Marathon Man). --Bret Fetzer

EXCELLENT, I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. I loved every minute of it.
I give it five stars, and highly recommend it. Just be prepared to really loathe the bad guy, and want the mom to release a pack of wild dogs on him.
