Law Abiding Citizen
The System Must Pay.
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.
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 «
Law abiding citizen is a bit dull at times but Gerard Butler gives a great performance he alone at least kept me entertained.
I saw this a couple of years ago and wasn't too keen. Late on Sunday night the tv was showing a distinct lack of anything decent to watch so this got another go. And I'm glad I did.
Yes this has problems,a lot of them. The first and most annoying being Gerard Butler's Yankee Doodle Dandy accent. Why couldn't he just have been an immigrant and kept his Scottish twang? The country has enough of them for Christ's sake. I digress. A revenge movie that centers on a dodgy deal that gets done behind close doors when a District Attorney decides to compromise. Letting down the victims and survivors to keep up his batting average is sickening and I did…
This could have been really effing great

Law Abiding Citizen might not be a movie that will remain in your head for a long time, but it is an entertaining thriller that will have your complete attention for two hours and keep you in suspense. It isn`t one of those memorable movies which will blow your mind with a clever ending, but it is good enough to enjoy and have a good time without taking the movie too seriously. Gary Gray (Friday, The Italian Job, A Man Apart) directed this crime thriller which was written by Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium, The Recruit) and it does have some flaws, but the movie maintains some degree of suspense…
Some movies are made to imitate reality, some are documentaries - and some are made to entertain you. This falls in to the latter category.
An action flick about one man on his quest for revenge. Fast phased movie you do not have to think too much. Just lean back and enjoy, if action films are your thing. GB makes a strong performance as a more or less psychopathic genius. And for Hollywood, a action movie where hero is not actually a hero is quite rare.
This movie is so great!!! it's much like Shawshank redemption in some scenes
Mundane would be thriller that has all the thrills of Driving Miss Daisy.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The torture scene was gratuitous, but I enjoyed how sudden the other acts of terrorism/violence were, even if they were sorta predictable. Clyde Shelton was honestly pretty stupid, but he was fun to watch, especially when interacting with Jamie Foxx. I'm sorta disappointed that Sarah wasn't Clyde's accomplice.
See everything you need to see in under 2 minutes
interesting plot but not good enough for a like
