This new Michael Caine vigilante revenge vehicle “thrills and titillates without any socially redeeming value.” And it does it with hints of “Reefer Madness.” But the film echoes recent events in the news — in Kingston, Jamaica, where police have stirred up violent community reaction with their attempts to arrest drug lord/”Robin Hood” figure “Dudus” Coke. All of which raises serious questions about the nature of drug enforcement, and the drug laws themselves — and the core problem of poverty. By Ed Felien.
