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.

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.

Much better than anticipated, definitely worth seeing

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.

I was begining to believe that Hollywood could only produce 90 minutes of mindless car chases, random helicopter crashes and explosions and call it a movie.
Dead Man Down has a good story, good acting and just enough action to put an edge on things. Go see it.
