After a heartfelt conversation, our hero leaves with a renewed purpose

What I thought

I thought as previews goes this was a very good jumping on point for the character and the series. We get to see the character in action protecting one of the citizens of the city he loves and the action sequences flow very smoothly as our hero takes out his adversaries. Gicen Allen’s tragic back story; his father dying when he was a toddler and his brother, who served as his father figure, being gunned down while still a rookie police officer, it is easy to see where his motivation comes from and given his age, it is expected that he would be drawn to still talk with his brother, who had essential been the only father he had ever known. Robert Jeffery’s dialogue is on point and Jamar Logan captures the emotions on display with great detail. Some flashbacks would have been a great addition to Allen’s emotion speech, but nonetheless it is still Robert Jeffery at his best.
