Revenge is best served cold, and who better to dish it out than ancient cowboy Sam Elliott? Avenger finds the western legend playing Calvin Dexter, a hero for hire assigned to find a wealthy industrialist's son last seen in Bosnia. Although not physically imposing, Elliott is still convincing as a tough old coot driven by anger. (Maybe he missed the early bird buffet by five minutes?) Based on a bestselling novel, the espionage thriller tracks spies, government corruption, and clandestine terrorists—leaving it only one vice-presidential hunting accident short of a Michael Moore special.
