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 $.

A beautiful and dark tale of revenge done right!

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

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.

Pleasantly surprised

For a movie that got decidedly mixed reviews, I thought that it was a good two hours of entertainment. Well paced, with a sufficiently intricate plot and a few good twists. Worth seeing.

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.
