This release is a cheat. Period. The original release is quite a good movie. This release is so bad I almost cried after seeing it, because I realised I wasted money! I paid for a movie I liked, but it ain't what I got from this Bluray! Generally, director's cuts have some scenes added to the theatrical release. But this time, half of the movie is new footage. A big part of the story was changed. The movie ends quite differently and abruptly compared to the original release. When I saw the end, I said "What? That's it???". When I read "Director's cut" on the package, I was expecting added scenes to the original release, not a new story and ending! Some characters or events of the original movie were replaced or simply written out. Don't read further if you don't want spoilers. In this release, Bronson is now a woman, and she has no son. So forget about the son kidnapping scene and the "This little piggy" scene, they don't exist anymore! After Porter shoots Fairfax's suitcases, Bronson and Porter rendez-vous to a train station. She gives him his money, then they shoot at each others. Porter kills Bronson with his gun, but ends up wounded by a gunshot. His prostitute girlfriend comes to pick him up, they drive away and the story ends this way... So don't expect the Porter's appartment plot, or the hammer torture scene, or the Bronson hijack scene, or the escape from car trunk scene, or the blowing a car with a cigarette scene... they are all gone! If I give a star for this bluray, it's only because I have to give at least one... My real rate for this bluray is absolute ZERO!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mel Gibson's Payback April 22 2004
"Payback" is a funny dark comedy and crime thriller at the same time. Mel Gibson plays Porter, a theif who has sworn vengence against his best friend (Gregg Henry) and his wife (Deborah Unger) for ripping off his share of heist money and leaving him for dead. He returns, enlists the aid of a hooker friend, and takes on the entire New York mob (called the Outfit). All of the men in the movie are bad guys, it's just that some are worst guys. Mel Gibson has never been funnier, even though he never cracks a smile through the whole movie. His delivery is dead pan, and that makes it so much funnier. Gibson's Porter (there is no first name) is tough. Porter has a kind of street smart that allows him to survive, much like a fox in the woods, always having the bad guys fall into their own traps. Lucy Liu is also pretty good as an extream S&M dominatrix. The three main bad guys are old hands at being bad. Kris Kristofferson is the head of the Outfit, Bronson. James Coburn is funny as the older man, Fairfax. And William Devane as Carter, a slimy day supervisor is funny at how casual he orders rather grisly murders. The violence is gruesome (though not exactly "Friday the 13th" level), but it is done in a "Three Stoges" extreamity that's kind of comic (although the torture scene at the end is not at all funny, I'll never look at Three Little Pigs the same way). I loved this movie, it has action, comedy, and a melodramatic scene that is out of this world. "Payback" is based on Richard Stark's "The Hunter", the first Parker novel. The movie has the correct feel that jibes with the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Payback - A truly enjoyable film! Oct. 5 2003
"Payback" hails back to the seventies type movies where rooting for the bad guy is the whole point of the movie and it works quite successfully in this first-rate film. Mel Gibson does an terrific job of playing the bad guy that you really want to root for. Fair warning to the light of heart and young ones though, for this film is not for them. Sticking with Mel Gibson's type of film making, the realism in this film is astonishing and could be considered rather shocking.
Given that this is an entirely different type of movie for Mel Gibson in which he is the hero of the film but his character isn't quite the "hero" type, I found his performance to be exceptional, but then again, name a film where his performance wasn't exceptional. Maria Bello of "ER" fame stars as Mel Gibson's love interest and she performs quite well in this film. Gregg Henry who plays the "true" bad guy of the film and he does a great job of playing the extraordinarily sadistic mafia "wannabe." Kris Kristofferson plays the "mob" boss of the film. Lucy Alexis Liu performs quite "scarily" as the masochistic/sadistic call girl with some interesting associates.
This is the first film from Director Brian Helgeland that I've seen and he certainly deserves a great amount of praise for bringing the novel "The Hunter" by Richard Stark to the silver screen and DVD format. This film is certainly the last of its type in the twentieth century! The sound track for the film matches perfectly with the entire "feel" and atmosphere of the film, greatly enhancing the experience.
The premise:
Mel Gibson plays Porter who, while being little more than a common criminal is not so much a common criminal as the film unfolds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Payback More Please Aug. 8 2003
By A Customer
Payback is dark, stylish and features one of Mel Gibson's coolest performances.
The muffled Dolby Digital track is sort of a disappointment, and more extras would be greatly appreciated, considering all the dram that went behind the camera for this particular film. Most people who has seen this film would know by now that there was a different version of Payback, with different plot twist and ending, before the original director Brian Helgeland was fired by Gibson due to creative difference. You can find plenty scenes and action sequences which were not in the final version in the short trailer, that alone can tell you how much materials we missed! Personally I would love to see the alternative version included, with a "fly on the wall" behind the scenes documentary, in a Special Limited Edition package.
People complained about "Payback" having too much shadow of the "Pulp Fiction" fame. I do not know how to argue with that. Because it could be, even though it does not intend to, since Pulp Fiction has been the champion reference for any other films that is slightly noirish, violent, and full of cussing. I would only say that this film might vastly improve if it is more action-oriented. Overall, Payback is an above-average gangster noir, entertaining, but forgetable. Whether the alternative version is a better one, we will never know, or won't we?

I gave this movie 3 stars because it offers almost a complete different movie than the theatre version. I believe this one to be better only because the action is more intense. Read more
