Vigilante Diaries (2016)

Director Christopher Sesma has been cranking out direct to streaming action films. Co-writing this film with star Paul Sloan, the twosome got this story started as a web series and got seven episodes onto USA before it got canceled.

The Vigilante has been captured and a black ops team with Wolfman (Quinton “Rampage” Jackson) and Tex-Mex (Chavo Guerrero Jr.) as members has to rescue him. And then there’s a rescue of The Vigilante’s pregnant wife. And Jason Mewes is a filmmaker who got the world interested in The Vigilante. And then Armenian mobsters start shooting up the place. And then there are bombs all over the city. And then there’s the threat of Barrington (Michael Jai White) and Moreau (Michael Madsen). And hey — there’s Danny Trejo tending a bar straight out of Accident Man or Deadpool.

This movie feels like I got dropped into the fifth sequel and have no idea who anyone is but everyone else does. It also feels like a comic book adaptation for a book that has never been published and somehow we’re supposed to know who everyone is.

That said, I want to like this more than I did. I have a soft spot for it. Maybe you will too.

You can watch this on Tubi.
