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.

Collin Farrell was fantastic. I spent half the movie wishing he'd shoot the idiont girlfriend but it's a great, new Film Noir and the girlfriend is a memorial new shady lady. I get the feeling the men are going to like this movie a lot more than the girls. Still, great viollent, suspenceful, surprising film. Ends with super action sequence that made any slight flaws in the movie worth it all. Go, take some testostorone and get some pop corn. Collin F get's better and better in his movies.

Of time, energy, money, star power, and a director that made better films in Sweden. I guess I shouldn't have expected much better from something produced by the WWE.

I went through 3 stages with this movie first i just thought it was a throw away action movie with a few likeable actors then i got a little excited when i saw the trailer then i got super excited with the red band trailer. So with that being said i went into this movie with fairly high hope and and i'm going to go out there and say it that this is probably my second favorite movie this year so far with the first being side effects and i can't believe i'm saying that but wow this movie was just right up my ally it was dark,sexy,funny and a awesome edge of your story! Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace were tremendous together and very well casted they both played their roles very well. Dominic cooper was also very good as Darcy. The directon was amazingly paced it was slow and gloomy but i was on the edge of my seat the entire time!. The soundtrack was good even though it was mostly in a foreign language it still fit the movie perfectly. I give DEAD MAN DOWN a 9/10

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
