A History Of Violence is like Mount Olympus. Instead of Gods gathering to argue, we have bad-asses pointing guns at each other. In this case we have Ed Harris (Fogarty) in the first half and William Hurt (Richie) in the ending with Viggo Mortensen (Joey/Tom) acting as the bridge.

"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 "
