The title of this made-for-TV movie should give you some idea of how weak it is. Exactly what other kinds of vengeance are there? Well-intentioned Vengeance, maybe? Happy-Go-Lucky Vengeance? In other words, this is a ridiculous tele-flick that makes no sense whatsoever, relying on weary clichés to tell the story of a perky woman (Virginia Madsen) whose bank guard husband (Bruce Greenwood) decides to pull off a major heist, fake his own murder and then frame her for both crimes. Now a fugitive herself, Madsen decides to take the law into her own hands and track Greenwood. For a movie that claims to be a suspense thriller, there is precious little suspense and only one cheap thrill, an extremely soft-core sex scene. Perhaps it's not too late for a title change. Boring Vengeance, anyone?
