Dead Man Down

The message of revenge of Victor crept on you; I did not realize it at first. The second message of the scarred woman of revenge was blatant, The two main characters, Victor, and the other woman were convincing and real. Overall, I really liked it and would recommend it to friends. The director really knew his subject: revenge and wove it in sublety. This is definitely for adults. I don't know if I am in the demographics the film targeted but I loved the shoot the up end.

Decent but forgettable movie

This is one of the better movies so far this year of the similar genre. I've seen Gangster Squad, Bullet in the Head, and Broken City and they are very bad movies. Dead Man Down was semi-decent. The performances were somewhat forgettable. The movie wasn't as tense as it should have been. But the minor counterplot was a welcome. At least I don't feel like I was wasting my time going to the theater.

Not a great film at all. I would wait for cable.

This movie moved very slow, and Terrence Howard pretty much was not in the film at all. Plot was terrible, and the story was horrible. Even the climax stunk. I give this film 1/2 a star. Don't waste your $.

It was okay

This movie was okay. Not terrible, but definitely not fantastic. At some points the acting was almost laughable because it was so melodramatic. The plot was decent, but it was hard to figure out in the beginning, as it was not at all straight forward. I didn't mind the plot though. Overall, it was just so-so!

DEAD MAN DOWN

DEAD MAN DOWN I liked this film from start to finish. There are three plots that are running simultaneously; but they don’t confuse the plot or get too complicated throughout the film. This is without question Colin Farells best performance as of today. He is absolutely astounding in this movie. I am seeing a turn for the better from Hollywood towards better movies this year. I thought that the director did a fantastic job of keeping this film moving at an interesting pace. One could say it is a bit slow; however it is consistent and filled with suspense and edginess. The entire cast does an outstanding job of acting. All in all, this is a good movie for you to enjoy and well worth the price of admission.
