Reviews:

” …entertaining, well-acted and beautifully executed. Perhaps a shameful treat for those not satisfied with the failings of the judicial system and not too concerned that the OT credo of “An eye for an eye” is an insane way to live in a civilized society.” Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews

“O’Neill is convincing as the troubled vengeance seeker and Potts does good as the co-worker who cares about him. But, for the most part, the rest of the cast are around just long enough to act tough and be killed […] While it doesn’t rank up there with Death Wish and The Exterminator, let alone Dead Man’s Shoes, Vengeance is Mine is an OK time killer.” Voices from the Balcony
