Costas Mandylor, Angie Everhart, and Christopher Atkins headline this thriller about a traumatized big city cop who moves his family to the country in hopes of forgetting his violent past, only to be targeted for death by the same psychopath responsible for killing his partner. After seeing his partner murdered during a drug bust gone awry, Sean was certain that his fellow officers would do everything in their power to ensure that justice was served. When internal politics within the police force threaten to prevent this from happening, a dejected Sean makes the decision to leave the city behind and move his wife and daughter to a modest ranch in the country. Meanwhile, the maniac who murdered Sean's partner stages a daring escape from prison, and he's determined to take out the man responsible for putting him there in the first place. Out in the country, Sean and his family are sitting ducks. As the killer closes in, Sean finds himself reluctantly dragged back into the violent world he had once tried so hard to escape. But this time the odds are greater than ever before, leaving Sean with no choice but to take drastic action for the sake of his frightened family. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi … More

Audience Reviews for Payback
Winston W. Champ's Payback needs to pay back the minutes stolen for viewing this lame excuse of a crime drama.
Making way towards a predictable conclusion, the film has trouble telling a story for a mere 80 minutes. There is no mystery or suspense, leaving a tedious and monotone trudge into an ending that doesn't come soon enough.
To bide time, the story finds the need to showcase unnecessary nudity and sexual content amongst senseless characters; probably with the intent to spice things up. Well, those segments did stand out over everything else; even over the few forgettable action pieces.
The most notable name of the cast is Angie Everhart. That pretty much sums up how poor this film turns out. The characters and performances go in one end and straight out the other.
Payback gives revenge a bad name. Pass up this featureless production.
