This One Will Keep You Guessing Till the End
on May 29, 2016
This one is worth owning. I missed this flick when it was in theatres and also when it was first released on DVD but I just had a chance to watch it this week and actually I watched it a second time later in the week it was that good.
Law Abiding Citizen reminded me of 'Man of Fire' (Denzel Washington). Jamie Foxx please a district attorney playing the odds to keep his conviction rate high while Gerard Butler play's the every day Law Abiding Husbands and Father until his daughter is killed and his wife is raped and killed all while he was forced to watch helplessly. The criminal justice system and DA let him down so Clyde (Gerard Butler) decides to take matters into his own hands and enact his own kind of justice and revenge. Butler reminded me of Liam Nesson in this movie.
When strange events start to happen around key people involved in the Murder Case it's up to district attorney Nick Rice (Jamie Fox) to figure out who's doing it and how. Fingers immediately point to the grieving husband Clyde Shelton but even after he's locked up in prison people continue to die. As the DA tries to figure out what's going on the audience is sucked into the mystery and drama too. Like an episode of Who Done It, everyone knows Clyde is behind the revenge killing spree but how?
Overall this is an enjoyable, entertaining and thought provoking crime drama that will keep you guessing and engaged till the very end.
This film is graphic and violent and carries an R Rating. There is no nudity but there is a scene of rape, torture and bad language.
