I went to see this because I became a Noomi Rapace fan from The Girl movies. I am so glad I had not read anything else about it. Two "damaged" and angry people begin a relationship based on blackmail and revenge against those who hurt them. The Noomi character is similar to Lisbeth Salander- hurt, angry and tough. Her performance alone is worth putting up with the exaggerated violence. Colin Farrell is a bit wooden. You have no idea what's going on inside his head for most of the movie. On the whole definitely worth seeing.

The message of revenge of Victor crept on you; I did not realize it at first. The second message of the scarred woman of revenge was blatant,
The two main characters, Victor, and the other woman were convincing and real. Overall, I really liked it and would recommend it to friends.
The director really knew his subject: revenge and wove it in sublety. This is definitely for adults.
I don't know if I am in the demographics the film targeted but I loved the shoot the up end.

The trailer for this movie was more entertaining than the actual movie. It moved very slowly & it wasn't as much action as I anticipated there being from viewing the previews. I expected more from a movie with Colin Farrell. When there was action to be seen, they were very good though. I'd probably buy it as a bootleg, wouldn't pay full price for it on DVD. Actually, I really wish I hadn't paid full price to see it at the show. Very disappointed.

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!

Had a movie nite in which we decided to see dead man down. It was a good movie and with a great cast surprisingly. Enjoyed it more than I thought . Great action and a touch of love with somewhat predictability. See for yourself ******
