Bound to Vengeance Review


A young girl, chained in the basement of a sexual predator, escapes and turns the tables on her captor.

Bound to Vengeance (2015) is an American thriller horror movie that is also known as Reversal (2015) and was filmed in North Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, USA. Director Jose Manuel Cravioto (Seguir siendo: Café Tacvba (2010), Volvo en un minuto (2007), Los últimos héroes de la península (2008), El Más Buscado (2014)) did a great job directing his first English movie. José displays a solid emotional story with a good amount of gore that was not overdone and filmed the movie beautifully with great scenes. The film contains suspense, thrills, dark humor, great pace, an okay cast with Tina Ivlev being the lead actor and sitting on the edge of your seat moments. This movie differs from other rape and vengeance films of its sort because it took time to grasp the situation and display it as it might happen in real life without erotic scenes. I gave this movie a six because it was an entertaining watch that made me think about my surroundings after viewing it and made me more aware of my outings. The movie was a bit emotional and disturbing as it was painful for me to see the victims chained to their bed and think about what mankind is capable of.

Eve (Tina Ivlev - Death Clique (2014), Crimes of the Mind (2014), Doggie Heaven (2008), The Devil’s in the Details (2013)) is 21 years old and was held captive as a sexual slave for six months before she escaped. She took her captor Phil ( Richard Tyson - There’s Something About Mary (1998), Kindergarten Cop (1990), Black Hawk Down (2001), Kingpin (1996)) down by immobilizing him with blows to the head. Eve found several pictures of other females including herself that are held captive for the same reason she was. Eve decides to give Phil an ultimatum that is either he shows her where the other female captives are, and she will take him to the hospital so that he can survive or if he denies her then he will die. Her rock solid plan soon goes downwards as she drives from one building to another in Phil’s van. She faces several roadblocks that might hinder her rescue mission and might also put her life in danger.
