A woman tracks down kidnappers after her husband goes missing on a Caribbean vacation.
" The script is smarter than it has to be, weaving a web of island corruption that's consistently surprising and moderately plausible, with rounded, juicy characters. "
" Though lacking marquee names, the film measures up to the typical Hollywood action-thriller in just about every other bailiwick. "
" "In the Blood" does Ms. Carano (and Caribbean tourism) few favors. Somebody, please give her a better script and director. "
" A film that ultimately comes across like the formulaic stepson of Frozen River, Winter's Bone, and countless other rundown-rural-community character studies. "
" As is typical of the genre, the plot gets sillier as it unfolds, while the violence gets gnarlier. "
" Carano is an impressive woman, but she's no Meryl Streep; and even Streep couldn't make a movie this by-the-numbers look like anything more than it is: violence with interruptions. "
" In the Blood is generic B-movie fare, bloody and, alas, increasingly dumb. "
" Stockwell understands most of all that we don't need Carano to talk; we need her to kick ass. "
" The jaw-drop factor that comes from seeing Carano's moves is often spoiled because of too much cutting or, in the case of the dance club sequence, excess strobing. "
" There is an odd, even creepy, undercurrent in Ava's backstory that is both repellent and underdeveloped as an idea. "
" This isn't much more than a straight-forward, get-the-baddies action flick. "
