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.

Dead Man Down didn't disapointed me at all. It was a great movie and all the stars of the movie nailed their roles with perfection. I would see this movie again in the theatre and get it when it comes out onto to DVD. It was worth seeing and worth every penny to see it. Dead Man Down was an awesome movie and if you haven't seen it I would highly recommend because its worth the two hours watching it. Dead Man Down two thumbs up.

After seeing a short trailer, I thought, how far could they take this story. I was admittedly drawn to it because Noomi Rapace was in there, and gave it a shot. And I am sure glad I did. There is so much more to this story than what was presented in the preview I saw. Great story, emotion, and plenty of action. Gals may swoon over Colin Farrell, but I never cared for him. After seeing this movie though, you can see he is an excellent actor worthy of praise. Noomi also brings another character to life with such realism you will not know that you are in a movie theatre. 10 out of 10.
