Twitter Capsule: Good cast looking to stretch, but script makes Southpaw's look like WGA Dean's List. Twist straight outta crazytown.

VOR:   Takes chutzpah to explore vigilante impulses of grieving mothers. Arrives at spurious conclusions, amid much else it gets wrong, but this is enough to make it risky. Plus: women of color unite!
