Synopsis

Respected Judge Charles Coleman (Taye Diggs) and his wife (Jennifer Tao) have devoted their lives to law enforcement. The two are thrilled when their son is accepted into the police academy, but everything changes when he is shot by two corrupt cops (Luke Hemsworth and Gianni Capaldi) and the official investigation finds no wrongdoing. After his trusted friend detective Horace (John Cusack) finds evidence to the contrary, Charles joins forces with an anguished mechanic (George Lopez) whose son was killed by the same cops and together they take the law into their own hands.

River Runs Red is neither substantive nor thrilling enough to prove satisfying.

One of several reasons River Runs Red is such a resentment-generating movie is that it takes a vitally serious subject and makes such a relentlessly dumb hash of it.

It’s only when River Runs Red gets to about the hour mark that a story begins to cohere. Up until that point, it had taken the most perfunctory of stabs at being a ripped-from-the-headlines drama about police shootings.
