Tokarev | Film review – Nic Cage’s avenging dad goes on the rampage in brutal B-grade crime thriller

Tokarev (2014)Ex-mobster turned self-made businessman Nicolas Cage goes on the rampage after his daughter is kidnapped in brutal B-grade crime thriller Tokarev. Is the abduction linked to his shady past? Cage’s investigative method is to shoot first, ask questions later, so it’s no wonder his lines of inquiry run into dead ends. There is a message about the futility of revenge lurking somewhere amid the carnage, but the action and script are so routine that it’s hard to work up much enthusiasm about the fates of any of the characters.
