IN THEATERS FRIDAY 1/29

In this violent thriller, Mel Gibson plays a Boston cop whose grown daughter gets shot on his doorstep. He assumes the bullet was meant for him until he finds a handgun by her bed. Could she have been the target all along? The actor -- despite thinning hair and deep worry lines -- remains forceful and magnetic as always. But his character's journey through a matrix of conspiracies involving ecoterrorists, corporate villains, shady fixers and a smarmy Massachusetts senator is way too convoluted.
