"I'm gonna pull the whole thing down. I'm gonna bring the whole fuckin' diseased, corrupt temple down on your head. It's gonna be biblical."

Essentially, Law Abiding Citizen is Death Wish meets Saw by way of John Grisham, except not as brilliant as this description would imply. Though the central concept for this motion picture is far-fetched and borderline absurd on paper, director... read more

All right, so I sat down and watched this for the second time since it came out. I remember quite enjoying it the first time around, but other than how the movie opens, I couldn't remember much about it, at first. There are some amazing scenes where you are like, what the hell did I just see? One scene in particular, my friend replayed about four or five times, the last in slow motion. Amazing... read more

"Katsottu: 11.4.2014 TV:stä (Nelonen) Clyde Sheltonin (Gerard Butler) vaimo ja tytär murhataan, mutta syylliset pääsevät kuin koirat veräjästä syyttäjä Ricen (Jamie Foxx) todisteiden puutteellisuuden vuoksi. Kymmenen vuotta tapauksen jälkeen Clyde kostaa tappajille ja muille, jotka estivät oikeuden tapahtumisen. Elokuva oli aika jännittävä, ja sitä katsoi mielenkiinnolla. Gerard Butler (300) tekee hyvän roolisuorituksen ja Jamie Foxxkin (Django Unchained) oli ihan hyvä. Fox"

An average movie

“It is one movie I kept hearing about (especially at my work, all my colleagues argue that it is easily one of the best movies ever made) and since the ratings were indeed pretty recent, I was really eager to check it out. The first thing I really enjoyed was the fact that the two main characters were not really necessary the good guy and the bad guy. Indeed, they created this interesting grey area where the actions of Clyde (the psychopath played by Gerard Butler) were rather understandable while the actions by Nick (the lawyer played by Jamie Foxx) were rather reprehensible. It gave an interesting dynamic but, unfortunately, the makers just dropped the ball at some point and the rest was just your typical Hollywood thriller with some big action scenes and explosions. I mean, it was entert” read more

l8t3r posted a review 7 months, 1 week ago

“A decent premise let down by miscast actors, poor writing and feels like a terrible episode of Law And Order: Criminal Intent.

The opening where Clyde is tied while his wife is raped, his daughter just stands there like it's an everyday occurrence. He didn't even try to tell her to run, hide or call the cops. It's no surprise that one of the intruders picks her up and kills her off-screen.

Despite have one of the men going to prison, the main character still isn't satisfied. His first attempt is to tamper with the lethal injections for the execution (which feels like Dead Man Walking minus the sympathy and development). If let the guy go on death row, it won't affect a thing.

He then targets other people involved in the trial. The only person who rarely suffe” read more
