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.

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

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!

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 $.
