After being shot, robbed, and left for dead by his wife and "Business" partner, an expert thief named Porter must retrace his steps, and take mighty revenge!.

While that plot may sound quite simple, it doesn't take away from the intensity and grittiness it has packed into it. Payback has got to be one of the best action films of that decade. Mel Gibson really put on a show with his ... read more

Good Old Gritty Action Movie

It´s not fancy to like this movie. It´s just another of those hard kick-in-your-face movies that proliferated in the Iron Age (also known as the nineties)... but better and harder than most. The worst part is that Gibson isn´t that hard and isn´t that bad but he has his good moments a charismatic smile and knows how to fake enduring pain.

Gibson was (is) more suited for the goo... read more

A good movie

I remember, when I got my first appartment, me and my buddys would rent a movie almost everyday and we would watch the most random things. We watched a lot of garbage back then but one movie I really enjoyed was this flick starring Mel Gibson. It is only afterwards that I discovered that it was a some kind of cult-classic. In my opinion, it is even the last good movie starring Mel Gibson. Basicall... read more

With friends like these, who needs enemies? That's the question bad guy Porter is left asking after his wife and partner steal his heist money and leave him for dead, or so they think. Five months and an endless reservoir of bitterness later, Porter's partners and the crooked cops on his tail learn how bad payback can be.

"8.11. Mel suuttuu, koska hänet petetään ja melkein tapetaan keikan päätteeksi. Mel aloittaa tilinteon, jossa ravintolalasku jätetään maksamatta, kerjäläiseltä viedään rahat ja panttilainaamosta ostetaan mutka. Ruman näköisen filtterin läpi kuvatussa leffassa Lucy Liu muun muassa potkii jengiä munille ja Mel repii nenä- ja korvakoruja irti. James Coburnia ei mainita lopputeksteissä ja Kris Kristofferson esittää Bronsonia. Ihme kyllä näin hyvää settiä ei pilannut edes se"
