After two intriguingly conceived but somewhat vague initial features, Surya made an assertive impression with 2018’s “Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts.” That striking “feminist outlaw Western” distinctively juggled elements of revenge thriller, black comedy and character-driven social critique. Her more conventionally commercial American debut is another vengeance tale driven by a strong-willed, capable female protagonist. But this is also the first film on which Surya has not had a hand in the screenplay. The one she’s been handed (credited to “John Brancato & Josh Olson and Haley Gross”) offers a viable if familiar pileup of perilous complications that make for a comparatively impersonal end result.  blogherads.adq.push(function () { blogherads .defineSlot( 'medrec', 'gpt-variety-article-mid-article-uid0' ) .setTargeting( 'pos', ["mid-article1","mid-articleX","mid","mid-article"] ) .setTargeting( 'viewable', 'yes' ) .setSubAdUnitPath("ros\/mid-article") .addSize([[300,250],[2,2],[300,251],[620,350],[2,4],[4,2],[320,480]]) ; }); Related Stories VIP+ Why Long-Form TikTok Videos Make Perfect Sense Zach Bryan Sets July 4 Release for 'Great American Bar Scene' Album ... and Says He's Giving 23 Bars Across the Country a 10-Day Sneak Preview Jessica Alba

We first meet Special Forces commando Parker Calvo (Alba) in Syria, where she and a driver are trying to outrun enemy fire in the desert. Their mission is left murky, but in any case she alone survives it, only to be informed that her father has just died Stateside. The bearer of that bad news is ex-beau Jesse (Mark Webber), now sheriff of their shared hometown Creation, N.M. Upon her return, however, that Biblical-sounding monicker proves ill-fit to current goings-on, which include a rash of strong-arm thefts. She fast suspects those crimes are connected to good-guy Jesse’s loutish bad-boy brother Elvis (Jake Weary). He’d have a long rap sheet already if not for the interventions of their father, political opportunist Sen. Ezekiel Swann (Anthony Michael Hall).
