Get Carter

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

The truth hurts.

Jack Carter (Sylvester Stallone) has spent his life collecting for other people - debts, agendas, retribution. He stands alone and always stands apart. But when his brother is killed in an accident, it takes Carter home... to the family he abandoned, to the debts that were never paid and a mystery that will take him to the center of his own soul.

For Jack, the trip home to Seattle is a second chance to make amends for past mistakes. He re-connects with his brother's wife, Gloria (Miranda Richardson), and her teenage daughter, Doreen (Rachael Leigh Cook), who are both suspicious of his sudden interest. But when he discovers that his brother's death has murder written all over it, his purpose quickly changes from redemption to revenge.

Jack forms an uneasy truce with Doreen, and soon she is helping him navigate the seamy underbelly of the city, through a deceptive world where nothing is what it seems. Carter is inclined to mete out his own brand of justice to the guilty; but the closer he gets to the truth, the more he questions his own motives, and instead of vengeance, he finds forgiveness and, ultimately, redemption.
