Critic Reviews for John Doe: Vigilante
This is supposed to be a thriller, by the way. It's more of a slog, not so much a whodunit as a whydunit-and by the end, it's: Who cares?
The fatal flaw of "John Doe" is its focus on ideas, rather than people. The protagonist's victims are so cartoonishly evil they might as well be twirling their mustaches before being shot in the head.
Great to look at, and with an aftertaste that lingers, what you get out of John Doe: Vigilante will depend solely on the way that you swing with this thorny issue.
John Doe: Vigilante starts in promising fashion then fizzles. Dolen and writer Stephen M. Coates give Doe a narrow focus: his targets are obvious malefactors, all male, ranging from paedophiles to sadists.
Although a bit muddle headed about what tone to adopt and confused about its moral stances, John Doe provides a talking point, if nothing else, about how society should respond to the inefficiencies of a justice system and police effectiveness
Audience Reviews for John Doe: Vigilante
John Doe: Vigilante is rife with the sort of problems you typically won't be able to avoid in low budget affairs, but beyond these technical issues, it's hard to fault the film too harshly. John Doe is at the absolute minimum, a thought provoking piece, and arguably a good story is presented as well.
