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.

Great Guy Flick

Collin Farrell was fantastic. I spent half the movie wishing he'd shoot the idiont girlfriend but it's a great, new Film Noir and the girlfriend is a memorial new shady lady. I get the feeling the men are going to like this movie a lot more than the girls. Still, great viollent, suspenceful, surprising film. Ends with super action sequence that made any slight flaws in the movie worth it all. Go, take some testostorone and get some pop corn. Collin F get's better and better in his movies.

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.

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.
