A complete waste

Of time, energy, money, star power, and a director that made better films in Sweden. I guess I shouldn't have expected much better from something produced by the WWE. Avoid.

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 $.

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.

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
