When he encounters migrants Rosa (Teresa Ruiz) and her 11-year-old son Miguel (Jacob Perez) running from drug cartel assassins, more trouble comes his way.

The body count begins to rise as Nels works his way up the chain - leading to violent drug kingpin Viking (Tom Bateman) and a final confrontation that includes a rival gang. This grisly revenge drama is laced with dark-edged humor. Based on the 2014 Norwegian film "In Order of Disappearance" (original title "Kraftidioten") starring Stellan SkarsgÄrd, the loose remake feels


ROG'S VIEWPOINT - Having to deal with his mother's (Felicity Jones) illness, an unsympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver) and bullies at school, 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall) gets unexpected help from a tree monster (Liam Neeson - voice and performance-capture).
