  • Excerpt: The vast array of films out there are a double edged sword.  On one hand, it’s nice to have such a diverse group of films and on the other hand, even with this diversity I sometimes feel like I’ve seen everything before.

  • Conclusion: I first screened 'Dead Man Down' several weeks prior to its U.S. theatrical release, long before it had word-of-mouth or a Tomatometer score. After seeing it, I wiped the drool from my mouth and couldn't wait until embargo lifted so that I could actually talk about the film.

  • Excerpt: There was a lot of potential in Dead Man Down . The film boasts a truly stellar cast of performers who don’t often get all the credit their due; it’s directed by Danish filmmaker Neils Arden Oplev, who made a major impact on the film world in 2009 directing the Swedish adaptation of The Girl With...

  • Excerpt: Dead Man Down , the grimy English-language directorial debut of Niels Arden Oplev, who helmed the Swedish adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo , is really two forgettable films, dimly battling for supremacy.
