Best part of story, including ending: A film based on revenge. Now a day, in USA crimes like this are increasing. Erica showed us what to do when it's necessary. A real brave one. A well written and well directed film to watch.

Best scene in story: When detective replaces Erica's gun with his legal police gun to shot the murderer.

Opinion about the main character: From a radio show host Erica turns into an avenger. A good character worth of watching.
