You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
A frustrated man decides to take justice into his own hands after a plea bargain sets one of his family's killers free. He targets not only the killer but also the district attorney and others involved in the deal.
While you are reading this review, a man will knock on your door giving you an envelope with a key in it. Tomorrow you will go to a train station and use this key to open the empty locker it belongs to at exactly 13.02, after which you will be bothered by six aggressive mimes and a small monkey. After this, you will go home, call your mother at 14.23 and cry about it. How do I know this? I planned this two years ago.
If you believe this, you'll give this film a five star rating. If not, you'll watch a completely forgettable, though decently made, action film.
Absolutely hilarious, DEATH WISH meets ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES, Bronson's reactionary fury replaced with Gerry Butler's ever-evident glee at playing psychos and Vincent Price's boobytrap elegance swapped out for gorgeous industrial Philly grunge. Delightful.
I love characters that are just impossibly good at what they do. This guy is just that. Although we don't get to see exactly how, which makes it a little unbelievable.
I'm going to talk about it on our next Last 10 Top 10 on the podcast » Cinereelists.com «
Resulta que "el peliculón" más recomendado por el usuario medio de Facebook en la última década es un "Se7en" de marca blanca que, aún obviando su imposible verosimilitud y el lastimoso empeño que tiene en caer una y otra vez en la predecibilidad, sigue siendo fea, estúpida y olvidable de narices.
Law abiding citizen is a bit dull at times but Gerard Butler gives a great performance he alone at least kept me entertained.
Had no idea that system was corrupted, Kurt Wimmer really opened my eyes here.
Decent thriller has some "out of nowhere" plot twists and stupid dialogues, but some parts of the masterplans and 2 or 3 action sequences are pretty amazing.
Atmosphere and strong characters can do wonders even to such a silly plot like this one.
I have wondered
In which Jamie Foxx succintly describes his antipathy for Gerard Butler's "pommes frites". The rest of the movie happens around this moment, but it's really the only part which rises to the occassion. Some choicely enunciated "motherfuckers" also prove highlights.
This started out great, it set the tone right but somehow deviated. You feel a certain sympathy for Clyde for a while until he just goes rougue.
We do expect a certain logical end to things, especially in a movie where everything is expected to be ethically right. This movie just doesn't heed that unwritten convention. It is not designed to be unconventional, but still it's execution feels thus and that fails the movie.
Sehr gewalttätig und brutal. Aber auch sehr interessant zu sehen, wie jemand wirklich gut planen und ausführen kann. Und wie bei jedem Plan, geht auch nicht immer alles wie vorhergesehen.
Nothing special here. I can honestly say this could have been 100% better. The execution was just meh. Too violent as well :/
I had high hopes for this movie & it has its unique appeal in the story although there were some absurd jumps & plot holes in this movie. Gerard butler did an awesome job, Jamie foxx was good as well but it has the most absurd ending. Felt extremely disappointed in the end, it could have been better! I felt like director was high while they were shooting this end! They fucked up a pretty well story based movie!
Flicking the channels on tv, I caught the scene from Butler taking his stand towards the judge onwards and tried to catch up. Once the first act of extreme violence occurred in the cell it took me by surprise, I had this film down as more silly than that without a harsh brutality, i thought; either it's gratuitous and simply nasty or it's taking itself seriously. I was surprised by the direction and cinematography too, the heaviness and icy coolhues, I can't help but find it somewhat slick. I watched the first half in the morning, the trailer, and read reviews. I think the entire film is actually condensed in the trailer, like every key shot to piece together the…
