Question about revenge movies: is there a "moral code" of sorts in these kinds of movies?

I agree. all of this is stemming from a screenplay I'm writing it's a revenge thriller and the person who looked at my outline basically said the main character lacked a moral compass. THe outline is still in the drafting stage. I don't know, the main character in my screenplay was betrayed by team members on a mission and left for dead...years later he comes back to punish every person involved. I don't feel that, in this case, there is a moral code. Morality flew out the win...
IMO, if the person who looked at it said that your character lacked a moral compass, it means the incident that set things off wasn't relatable enough or wasn't severe enough. You want people to nod their heads and think, "Yeah, I can see going over the edge like that if that happened to me."
If that's not what you're getting something is off.
