Politics is dirty business, so when after some problems with the Russian mafia Mayor Alderman (John Savage) allows the Mexican cartel to take over, the Russian kingpin Mikhail (Harley Wallen) isn't all that pleased, understandably. So Mikhail has the mayor's daughter Marie (Kaiti Wallen) kidnapped to eventually be sold as one of his sex slaves - which causes the mayor set up a task force led by detectives Miller (Aphrodite Nikolovski) and Redford (Jennifer Jelsema) ... and while both of them are more than capable women who catch the right scent quicker than can be expected, the mayor was too good in covering up the tracks to be found previously. So he also hires Wolf (Billy Wirth), pretty much the most ruthless man there is, as his back-up plan, as Wolf has his way to torture things out of people and get a kick out of it as well. Thing is, for one Mikhail is woven so deep into the system he can expect to win a fight with the police, and his men disappearing sets his alarms off, and he always has a plan B ...

 

Now one thing's for sure, even in the modern gangster movie realm Betrayed's not for the faint-hearted, and even if it's not terribly graphic, it does get the mind into dark places - but the real raison d'être of this film isn't to be just torture porn, but tell a compelling story that isn't black and white at all but told in many shades of grey, without adhering to a genre formula that heralds who's going to live and who's going to die ages in advance but keeps the audience on the edge of their seats throughout. And thanks to a strong cast and a directorial effort that finds the right balance between expliciteness and atmosphere throughout, all resulting in a pretty powerful genre piece.
