Product Description

Product Description

When Kathryn Stillman (Mary Tyler Moore) alerts the police about someone who is stalking her, they arrive on the scene and give the suspect a brutal beating. Kathryn is subsequently persuaded to give evidence against the cop responsible, Brian Kaleen, and he is suspended from duty. But rather than just accept his punishment, Kaleen exacts revenge by arresting first Kathryn, then her son Adam, accusing him of murder. To save Adam from 30 years in jail, Kathryn must give evidence against the cop, but it seems he is prepared to kill in order to stop her from speaking in court.

Format: DVD
Crime drama starring Mary Tyler Moore and Edward Asner. It is a dull on-screen reunion of two former lead actors of the classic "Mary Tyler Moore Show."

Filmed in and around Portland, Oregon, "Payback" is based loosely on real events. It is centred around a working mother (Moore) who witnesses a brutal incident of police violence and who becomes the target of a rogue cop's revenge after she reports the crime to an internal affairs investigator (Asner). Also starring Fredric Lehne.

It has to be tough for TV legends to find work, but the awkward Moore acts as if she wandered into the wrong movie. And it carries the title Payback. That's the only thing succinct about this sordid thriller.

Although this is a made-for-TV movie (and it shows), it's quite frightening; not in the way horror is frightening, of course, but because most of us (if not all of us) must dread the very idea of becoming the target of a vendetta.

Moore plays restaurateur Kathryn Stanfill, who testifies against police officers who beat up a man. Then the reign of terror begins. Police pull over Stanfill in the belief she's driving a stolen car. Police investigate her husband, a teacher, for sexual harassment. She receives belligerent late-night calls. Her car is towed.

This unimaginative drama saves the worst of it for her unfortunate son, who has had run-ins with the law. He's charged with rape. Then he's charged with murder, and that paves the way for a big trial, which causes Moore to cry. And the sociopathic cop (played by Fredric Lehne) is too boldly evil to be believable.

Payback puts Moore in one harrowing situation after another. Worst of all, the film forces Moore to go undercover at the end. The system doesn't work, the film says, so Moore has to play Dirty Harry!

A grim superbly acted tale of police corruption, retribution and a mother's devotion and loyalty to a son.

Mary Tyler Moore gives a fascinating multi faceted performance as a a woman who discovers that the truth is nothing like how it appears and that her family is threatened and almost destroyed by her need to tell it

This is a disturbing film entirely due to the high quality of performances by all the actors involved.

It is so intersting to note that as films made by major studios become increasingly ludicrous and unwatchable small budget projects like this portray a Truth the bigger boys leave alone

My husband does a podcast (The 80s picture house) and he watches all these supposedly crap films from the 80s. I have to say, that all these type of films look like they're going to be TERRIBLE, but in fact they're all solid gold. I have never laughed so much in my whole life as I have at these films.
Faves being SHOTGUN, SAMURAI COP and MALIBU EXPRESS.
Fantastic.

HASH(0x9133ec9c) out of 5 stars Alittle look back at Asner and Mary tyler moore 8 July 2009
By SkinnyDude - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Of course I recall them from the Mary tyler moore show and Ed asner always a nice screen presense. I got this in a bargain bin for a dollar so I said why not. The production value of the film is good. The storyline was interesting As Ed Asner is an internal affairs officer who encourages Mary tyler Moore to testify against some cops that clearly cross the line. She does so in good faith but than there is Hell to pay. Overall it was 3 1/2 stars. I glad I took the time too look back at these too likeable characters at work. Only thing I had to suspend my beliefs on was the speed in which one of the characters trial evolved lol Enjoy!
