In a city rife with injustice, ex-cop Billy Taggart seeks redemption and revenge after being double-crossed and then framed by its most powerful figure: Mayor Nicholas Hostetler.
At one point, during a campaign meeting, Jack Valliant (Barry Pepper) tells his team they need that "Senator, you are no Jack Kennedy" moment. Two years prior to this movie, Pepper starred as Robert Kennedy, JFK's brother, in The Kennedys (2011).
Your Honor, it's murder. Even when the police do it.
When Billy and the mayor are in the mayor's office where he first hires Billy to investigate his wife, the decanter and the glasses on the table and the blanket on one of the couches all change position repeatedly between shots.
