Things get off to a pretty rocky start with Brad Turner’s Trigger Point thanks to a haphazard opening sequence comprised of silencer shots and gun flashes as random bodies fall to the ground. It feels like the cold open to a television show (Turner has worked on the likes of 24, Homeland, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. amongst many others during his thirty-year career) and thus the precursor to what will ultimately feel like a made-for-TV actioner. That we quickly move to a day in the life of Nicolas Shaw (Barry Pepper) with high-tech gadgets in a low-tech small-town setting with loquacious acquaintances at the diner and bookshop doesn’t necessarily help matters since it all feels so artificial. Things finally settle down upon discovering that’s kind of the point.
