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.

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

From the previews it looked pretty interesting but actually watching it turned out to be a different outcome. I wasn't totally disappointed but wasn't thrilled out my socks either...

After seeing a short trailer, I thought, how far could they take this story. I was admittedly drawn to it because Noomi Rapace was in there, and gave it a shot. And I am sure glad I did. There is so much more to this story than what was presented in the preview I saw. Great story, emotion, and plenty of action. Gals may swoon over Colin Farrell, but I never cared for him. After seeing this movie though, you can see he is an excellent actor worthy of praise. Noomi also brings another character to life with such realism you will not know that you are in a movie theatre. 10 out of 10.

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.
