The Defenders: Payback

1997, Movie, R, 95 mins

In the 1960s, "The Defenders" was a cutting-edge television series with Emmy Award caliber credits. This retro-rehash, made for Showtime, also handles controversial material, but in a less electrifying, provocative manner than the original.

Distraught Michael Lane (John Larroquette) walks up to Jack Bishop (Nicholas Kilbertus), the man who served time for raping Lane's then-nine-year-old daughter Tracey, and calmly shoots him to death. Lane's vigilante justice garners the attention of lawyer Lawrence Preston (E.G. Marshall), who engages his granddaughter M.J. (Martha Plimpton) and persuades his son Don (Beau Bridges) to come out of retirement.
