Trigger Point, the points on the body which trigger pain.
A disgraced U.S. operative who suffered memory loss at the hands of his captors gets dragged back into the deadly spy world when a colleague goes missing. He needs all of his skills to find her, but to uncover the truth, he must remember the past.
Barry Pepper plays Nicolas Shaw, a retired government agent (we assume the CIA) who’s been living off the grid for some time. His quiet rural existence soon comes to an end. Reluctantly, he is pulled back into the spy game by former colleague, Elias Kane (Colm Feore). His daughter, Monica Kane (Eve Harlow) has been kidnapped and only Shaw can identify the culprit.
He begins by shooting (usually in the head) anyone who gets in his way as he searches for Monica. Barry Pepper was remarkable as Roger Maris in 61. In Trigger Point, he just looks old and tired. There’s a lot of action, but no real backstory. Pepper does carry the entire film. It had potential, but the plot and characters were never fully developed.
From this point forward everything becomes convoluted, confusing, and kinda’ dumb. At the end, we are left with more questions than answers. After leaving a slew of bodies in his wake, we assume all of the baddies are gone. Then, Nicolas walks off with gun in hand apparently ready to finish the job, then the credits begin to roll. What? There is no next scene, the movie is over. Leaving us all to wonder. “Is that it”?
