First of all, even though I thought the story was intriguing enough, I enjoyed above all the directing and the acting. Back in the 80's, Cronenberg started with some rather sleezy horror movies which became eventuall... read more

A History Of Violence is like Mount Olympus. Instead of Gods gathering to argue, we have bad-asses pointing guns at each other.

"6.1. DVD Uusintakatselu. Kovin on uudislänkkärin henkeä tässäkin, itseasiassa teemoiltaan hyvinkin samankaltainen Armottoman kanssa. Idyllisen rauhallisessa pikkukaupungissa sattuu ikävä aseellinen ryöstö, joka päättyy hirveään väkivaltaan. Mutta koska pahat sedät pääsevät hengestään ja hyvikset selviävät, on tämän hirveän väkivallan toteuttaja suuri amerikkalainen sankari. Hyvän ja pahan, moraalin ja oikeudentajun kaksinaisuutta pohditaan niin ravistelevasti, että "
