The vengeance thriller, a genre that employs violence to represent the worries of its readers, is built around grieving spouses, dads, and even dog owners. At their finest, vengeance thrillers provide catharsis by depicting a wronged hero triumphing against society’s evils, such as corrupt governmental systems, terrorist groups, and people traffickers. The twist in the otherwise unremarkable action picture “Sweet Girl” is that the secretive corporation hiring contract murderers and eluding justice is a health-care business.
Ray (Jason Momoa) is a grieving father who has lost his loving wife to cancer. He’s plagued by the thought that her death may have been avoided if Bioprime, a prominent medical research firm, hadn’t stopped the release of a generic version of a proprietary cancer treatment. Ray is approached by a writer who wants to do an exposé on the firm, but the reporter is assassinated while they are speaking. Witnesses include Ray and his adolescent daughter Rachel (Isabela Merced). IMDB
