Anna has nothing to lose, since she's just been diagnosed with Brain Cancer. She decides to take matters into her own hands and take out druggies, rapists and murderers.
If you'd like to have Juncture jammed into a nutshell, put it this way- it's Death Wish
with a chick except she's actually going to die no matter what. It's reminiscent of The Brave One
, except it doesn't suck horribly and doesn't have a male in the lead. It's a great little twist on the typical genre and adds a good pinch of morality. What do you do when you literally have nothing left to live for, knowing your days truly are numbered?
This one lives and dies by its lead character and her motivation. It works quite well because you actually work. You get a lot of information about Anna's character and it doesn't feel like overload- the whole film progresses quite organically and that's really important. Kristine Blackport is also worth mentioning as the main character, as she really brings a good work ethic to the role. She's not perfect and sometimes comes off a little wooden, but she's got a lot on her plate. Also worth mentioning is Jon Hutton's performance as millionaire Jonathan Lamont- good job.
The movie plays like a psychological thriller rather than a blood and guts fest. It does have some gripping stuff in there though; wait until the rave scene and the drunk driver chase. Good stuff! The opening scenes are quite brilliant and as the film progresses, it's clear that the lines between good and evil are beginning to blur. Anna could have been a bit more discreet about her killings, which seemed a bit audacious. It's true that sometimes the whole thing is a bit implausible and that she would have likely been caught, but the police do make an effort, which is nice.
