CINEMA AUSTRALIA SAY We’re not sure what to make of either of the 2 trailers for Kelly Dolen’s new film, or the publicity behind it. The filmmakers seem keen to let us know that John Doe: Vigilante has a strong message and theme behind it, which seems to have been done to death with films like V For Vendetta and Natural Born Killers. The trailer looks like it’s aimed at an American audience and maybe that’s what the filmmakers are going for. John Doe: Vigilante will open in the US on March 21, 2014 ahead of it’s Australian release on May 1, 2014.
http://www.johndoevigilantefilm.com SAY Some call him a hero. Some call him a villain. He’s “John Doe: Vigilante” – an ordinary man who decides to take the law into his own hands. Frustrated with a failing legal system that continues to allow violent criminals to go free, John Doe begins exacting justice the only way he knows how – by killing one criminal at a time. Soon he becomes a media sensation and inspires a group of copycat vigilantes, but who is the real John Doe – a pillar of justice or a cold-blooded murderer? You decide.
