It's not going to win any Oscars but this is a really good action/revenge/romance movie. Noomi Rapace is amazing, as usual, and Colin Ferrell makes the action scenes great.
I wouldn't recommend it to everybody, but if this is the sort of stuff you're into, you'll like it.

I liked the European feel of this movie in general, but there was NO chemistry between the two main characters, and when Colin Farrell leans in to kiss her, I thought to myself: There is no way he would be attracted to her. It made me gag. I am not sure what everybody sees in Noomi Rapace, I found her acting atrocious.

Dead Man Down was a good movie with some funny moments too. Violence, action packed, and man falls for girl. Love the red recliners at AMC Waldorf!

I'm a Terrance Howard fan. I was a little disappointed with this picture. The trailers lead me to believe there would be more...SOMETHING! In my opinion, this movie was a little flat. There were some good action scenes towards the end and the leading lady (sorry, didn't catch her name) is CUTE with GREAT legs. Would I recommend this picture to others?? I'd say only if you're a huge fan of any of the actors in the picture, otherwise...EH!!! Although it was good to see Armand Assante again (however briefly), doing his usual role.

Decent date movie. Ladies will love Colin Ferrel and men will be charmed with Noomi Rapace, who's pretty damn hot despite the scars. It's a complex plot, but not quite so solid. It might've been better served by keeping somescenes that were likely cut. The story felt too forced or a stretch in any normal viewers' imagination. Some great tension in the movie and suspense as it became a fairly nice "reveal." But, some of that momentum was lost and snagged as one is caught thinking more than feeling their way through the movie. It was carried by big names, good looks, sensual energy, and solid action. However, some of these gaps in writing, force fit some ideas that simply eroded the credibility of the story line. It's unfortunate because most were small points of detail that didn't really add much. Instead they detratcted, and apparently squandered some of the real acting talent and opportunities available with such big name stars. Happy I saw it. Would not see it again though.
