You have to love these movies, they are everywhere you look. I mean they wouldn't exist if there was no doubt that justice systems worked. You wouldn't be able to cheer for what's happening in Law Abiding Citizen either that's for sure. They come in all forms i.e. parents seeking vengeance on their daughters rapists, girl seeking revenge after boyfriend is brutally murdered, wrongful imprisonment etc. Such is the case here as Gerard Butler fill the shoes of the aggrieved. You already know this story, but what you don't know is how ridiculous the twist is going to be. Fair enough, the guy is a brilliant "tactitian", that is made very clearly but I must say sometimes...sigh. I would never have guessed this one. So ridiculous ending and all it did manage to keep my attention the entire time. It's one of the better 'average' revenge films (hence the 6) and I expected Butler to scream the famous "Sparta" line every know and then. He does go apesh*t in this, which is very appealing in this sort of film. Personally I would have loved to see him follow through his entire plan and possibly surprise the viewer with a more morbid ending in reaching his goal but of course, this is mainstream so it was probably already pushing the limits in terms of the film's ending. It's an entertaining movie to watch but it's easily forgotten.
