Its die Hard Battle ruthless Irish gangsters by taking innocent patients hostage as an ex-combat surgeon in a hospital. Mercy Could have been a pulse-pounding thriller with a timid protagonist who is easy to root for. Star leah gibson delivers spanking and bullets like a bona fide Work star. Villains Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Jon Voight, playing a sweet Limerick brogue, are bad enough to warrant genuine contempt. Thus, there is no lack of overall basis and individual performance for the material. The problem is in the execution of vulnerable scripts full of plot holes, Many scenes test your patience as common sense and self-preservation are clearly ignored.
In Kandahar, Afghanistan, Captain Mitchell Miller (Gibson) faces a life-or-death situation in a field hospital. Its tragic outcome is irreversibly changing his fate. Several years later, Michelle works as a doctor at Mercy Regional Hospital in Seattle. She proves her undeniable skill by rescuing a seriously injured man. Dr. Terence (Bobby Stewart), her former commanding officer and current manager, admires her ability to think quickly and act decisively.
Meanwhile, the FBI interrogates Ryan Quinn (Anthony Konekny), the son of Irish mob boss Patrick Quinn (Voight). They want her to testify against her father and violent older brother Sean (Rhys Meyers). Ryan, a clean-cut lawyer, knows all the dirt but refuses to turn against his family. The Feds decide to move Ryan to another location. Sean’s goons were following Ryan when he was taken away. Sean instructs them to grab their weapons when he is ambushed.
It’s a bloodbath as Shawn wages a battle against the hapless FBI. A surprising twist in the attack exposes his true intentions. Rookie Agent Ellis (SEBASTIAN ROBERTS) survives and rushes to the nearest trauma hospital with a seriously injured Ryan. Michelle saves Ryan’s life but must battle her wild family before she can find her precious son (ANTHONY BOLOGNIS).
Leah Gibson packs a wall
Silly scenes with waving flags and patriotic music show Mitchell’s heroic medal count like a video game score. It was completely unnecessary and ups the cheese factor. A shredded Gibson packs a wall and then some. She brutally kills the invaders in bone-breaking fight scenes. They are not pushers who fizzle out at first, but seriously lose. The kicking doctor draws blood with great difficulty. Gibson is credible and elevates the film with his raw grit.
Screenwriter Alex Wright (Once Upon a Prince, Chori in Suburbia) has extensive experience as a director and producer. The primary characters are well defined. Wright’s screenplay goes south with secondary characters wandering around with useless tasks. For example, a ludicrous subplot has Michelle asking an inept security guard (Marc-Anthony Masiah) to disable the security monitors. Thus preventing the miscreants from tracking his movements or tracing Ryan’s location. Makes perfect sense but his inability to pull it off really made me laugh out loud. It never occurs to him to break or disable the monitor. Mercy Filled with inane filler that could have been cut.
good action scenes of mercy
A tough performance from Gibson, ruthless antagonist and decent action scenes Can’t overcome major narrative failures. it’s unfortunate because of mercy The base ingredients promised. There is more evil than good here.
