Het verhaal - over een moeder die de moord op haar dochter wil wreken - is voor een regisseur van het kaliber John Schlesinger nogal doorsnee en tamelijk ongeloofwaardig.

Stotterende Kiefer Sutherland is een rasboef met vetkuif en druipsnor, de man die hun dochter heeft verkracht en vermoord, maar die door een juridische fout toch weer vrij rondloopt. - (tv-gids)
