Express Review

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that, on average, 130 Americans each day die of an overdose. Why is no one doing anything about it?

Painkiller is about a father/radio show host Bill Johnson (Oberst Jr.) who loses his child to an opioid overdose. Bill is devastated and wants answers. He feels that the white-collar criminals behind the opioid epidemic are not being held accountable for their actions. Johnson goes on a killing spree targeting those who sell such drugs.

He first targets drug dealers and follows it up with doctors and pharmaceutical executives. One of the doctors includes Dr. Alan Rhodes (Pare) who is living off the profits he’s been making from his prescription business.

You may not agree with the main characters approach but you do understand his loss.
