As an actress, Olivia Wilde has been something of a shape-shifter, but in this movie she seems to be burning through all her previous roles to find something essential.
Putting a deliberately unromantic spin on its wish-fulfillment scenario, the film scratches a genre itch without using it as an excuse ... for vicarious sadism.
A Vigilante is a gritty and emotionally raw film with a career-high performance by Olivia Wilde. The combination of Olivia Wilde and Sarah Daggar-Nickson is pure magic leaving us with a message of strength, survival, and the resilience of women.
Flaws can be forgiven, especially since Daggar-Nickson is a first-time filmmaker showing great promise here with her eye for the camera. She's made a film that is sober, unflinching and fits perfectly with the current political movement.
A Vigilante overcomes its blemishes by Olivia Wilde's haunting performance as a woman determined to right society's wrongs.
A bleak, challenging, and angry piece of cinema, A Vigilante uses familiar genre tropes to explore uncomfortable truths.
A Vigilante succeeds not by exploiting torture, but instead shifting focus to Olivia Wilde's painful, so very real performance.
Not only does Daggar-Nickson reimagine a reductive reverie into one of harrowing, feminine empowerment, but she does so in a way that is wary of violence, even while using it to defang the type of toxic masculinity that has long wallowed in this genre.
