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

A very forgettable film that is hardly entertaining. Overused plot with the ending that sort of fizzles out without a punch. It lacked even the basic premise of suspense and thrill.

Most directors would put half this movie on the cutting room floor to keep it moving. Here they using it as a filler. Hours of boring scenes going nowhere. Colin's character is also totally inept. He saves the life of the guy hes trying to knock off just to keep the movie going, whats the point. It should be a 5 minute movie. They fake romance between him and a lady, there is nothing there. Come in the last ten minutes, only good part.

Dead Man Down didn't disapointed me at all. It was a great movie and all the stars of the movie nailed their roles with perfection. I would see this movie again in the theatre and get it when it comes out onto to DVD. It was worth seeing and worth every penny to see it. Dead Man Down was an awesome movie and if you haven't seen it I would highly recommend because its worth the two hours watching it. Dead Man Down two thumbs up.
