I would have enjoyed this movie a lot more if Dominic Cooper and Colin Farrell had switched roles. Ever since seeing THE DEVIL'S DOUBLE I've been a huge fan of Coopers and am glad to see he's starting to get parts in movies that show up at my Cineplex. I was also very surprised and pleased to see Armand Assante had a small part in this film.
However, the one thing I hated about this film was the difficulty in understanding the dialogue! Perhaps the Marlon Brando mumbling style of acting has returned, but whatever the reason, it's especially hard to follow what's going on in a movie like this one.
But, all in all, I'd still give it a marginal thumbs up.

I liked the European feel of this movie in general, but there was NO chemistry between the two main characters, and when Colin Farrell leans in to kiss her, I thought to myself: There is no way he would be attracted to her. It made me gag. I am not sure what everybody sees in Noomi Rapace, I found her acting atrocious.

I'm a Terrance Howard fan. I was a little disappointed with this picture. The trailers lead me to believe there would be more...SOMETHING! In my opinion, this movie was a little flat. There were some good action scenes towards the end and the leading lady (sorry, didn't catch her name) is CUTE with GREAT legs. Would I recommend this picture to others?? I'd say only if you're a huge fan of any of the actors in the picture, otherwise...EH!!! Although it was good to see Armand Assante again (however briefly), doing his usual role.

"Dead man down" was a movie I had to go to the movie theaters to see and it was definitely a good decision. Loved the movie and the acting was spectacular.

Wasn't expecting much from this action/thriller, but was very pleasantly surprised. Both Noomi Rapace and Colin Farell really do display solid acting chops in this one. Would give it a solid 3 out of 4 stars.
