I went to see this because I became a Noomi Rapace fan from The Girl movies. I am so glad I had not read anything else about it. Two "damaged" and angry people begin a relationship based on blackmail and revenge against those who hurt them. The Noomi character is similar to Lisbeth Salander- hurt, angry and tough. Her performance alone is worth putting up with the exaggerated violence. Colin Farrell is a bit wooden. You have no idea what's going on inside his head for most of the movie. On the whole definitely worth seeing.

Simply put, "Dead Man Down" is a good movie. The lead actors are interesting. The ending started strong, but ended a little weak. Still, a better movie than the last Die Hard!

Had a movie nite in which we decided to see dead man down. It was a good movie and with a great cast surprisingly. Enjoyed it more than I thought . Great action and a touch of love with somewhat predictability. See for yourself ******

The trailer for this movie was more entertaining than the actual movie. It moved very slowly & it wasn't as much action as I anticipated there being from viewing the previews. I expected more from a movie with Colin Farrell. When there was action to be seen, they were very good though. I'd probably buy it as a bootleg, wouldn't pay full price for it on DVD. Actually, I really wish I hadn't paid full price to see it at the show. Very disappointed.

I rate this a B+. The story has been told before but Colin and Terrence do great work bringing something extra to the roles. Noomi is decent but like her better as an action star. Good action, decent side story, and good pacing. Is it great ...no but worth a couple of hours if you've got them to spare. Go and enjoy
