Summary: I think the critics really misunderstood this movie. Some compared it to the disgusting series "Saw" or "Torture Porn", they couldn't be more wrong, there is honestly not very much gore in the movie at all except for two quick scenes.
Excerpt: There is something inhumanely ugly and cruel about Law Abiding Citizen. The film asks us to celebrate Draconian revenge-based justice and the violation of civil liberties because of the fact that the courts can occasionally be abused to get bad people out of nasty sentences.
Summary: Meeeeeeeh... It started very, very good, at first revenge was justified, but then it just became into a non-sense murdering. At the end of the film, all I wanted was the "bad" guy to win at least, not the moron lawyer, but neither that happened. It was totally anticlimactic...
Excerpt: This movie surprised the hell out of me. Gerard Butler was awesome as a murderous genius. The brutal ways in which some of his victims died were really creative. I loved the way he exacted revenge on everyone.
Summary: Clyde (Gerard Butler) had a reason to kill the people who killed his family: REVENGE but why was he killing Police and FBI agents just to make Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx) mad? They didn't do much to Clyde and already got his revenge which was enough. And you know what would of been a better ending?
Summary: This movie disgusts me, if I am being honest. The violence was without meaning, and it seemed spliced in for the sake of satisfying a bloodthirsty crowd. It has its enjoyable moments, and for that I give it a 2, but it is recycled garbage.
Summary: Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) sees his wife and child murdered and raped by Clarence Darby (Christian Stolte). Prosecutor Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx) is Clyde's lawyer but witnesses him shake hands with Darby's lawyer.
Summary: Law Abiding Citizen plays with some interesting themes and issues but it doesn't seem to have a clue what it wants to say. Is the justice system corrupt? Is serious reform needed? Are Clyde's (Gerard Butler) actions justified?
