Law Abiding Citizen will not disappoint. (by fendij3)
This movie really takes the cake. It's focused on a father Clyde who gets beaten and his wife and daughter are killed by 2 crooks. However the crooks' punishment was dimmed down because of a deal made by the lawyers Jamie Fox . 10 years later, Clyde decides to take out the entire corrupt justice system.This movie really keeps you on the edge of your seat, and the main character Clyde really makes this movie something memorable and just extraordinary. You can compare Clyde to the Joker pretty much, but in my opinion 10 times better. Clyde devises sneaky and cunning ways by taking <more>
down his victims and the whole sense on whether he is the hero or villain also adds to the excitement. Jamie Fox also does a great job playing his character, a heroic yet corrupt lawyer.There are a few scenes that will guaranteed make you laugh and a few scenes that will pretty much tell you that Clyde is just one kickbutt character, no questions about it. Every scene you will be wondering what will happen next, because you honestly won't know. The movie has a few twists and turns and will always keep you guessing. If you want to see something that is highly suspenseful, will keep you on the edge of your seat, and includes 2 very unique and questionable characters, then you must see this movie. Law Abiding Citizen will not disappoint.
I went into this movie just wanting to watch Gerard because I love him as an actor. When I got in there, I realized that this was not going to be just any movie. This movie was kick ass and I am so glad that I went to see it. I would pay 10 times to go watch this movie in theaters. He really took it over the edge, and the quote that my friends and I are saying since then is "It's going to be biblical" They really make each scene one for the books with creative ideas and thrilling scenes that keep you wondering what will be in store. It is one of the few movies that my heart was <more>
racing and my mind was wondering what would happen next. I love it and cannot wait to see it again.
Great movie - Saw an advance screening (by pocolady1)
WOW! This movie is great. I saw this last night at an advance screening. My friends and I are still talking about it. Keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx are both great in their roles. Watch the trailer if you haven't yet - the movie is just as good as the trailer.This movie questions the justice system. One of the many great scenes is when the judge is willing to let a suspected murderer go back on the streets, but then puts him in jail simply because he insults her.It also questions the line between vengeance and what it takes to get <more>
someone's attention to what is right and wrong, what really matters.A MUST SEE!!
Butler "serves" us great performance... (by datasysxtreme)
...and all other as well. Plot has deep impact, audience emotionally varies while conclusion is made in sort of glorified point of view. Brings you both satisfaction and belief that eventually things are put in right place! Movie has rough and quite raw beginning which will make you take a set for almost two hours without loosing sight of screen...not for a moment...I sincerely believe that we all have shared feelings on topic this movie presents, therefore i'm almost certain 99% of viewers will be satisfied and what the most important....impressed by performance and general idea this <more>
movie delivers.No one can't escape faith...but many can postpone it! I give this movie 9 for two reasons.... 1 reason combines both main actors as one of my favorites... 2 reason: i think i'll give 10 only to movie about me ; Enjoy this great movie.
Unique thriller, great ending! (by BronzeKeilani26)
In this strong, twisting court room crime drama thriller a man becomes angry because his family was murdered and they received no justice in the courtroom. We all know in real life, justice doesn't always come by way of the court room...so now the plot thickens. I loved this movie because it also had a message in it. Our justice system is very flawed and half the time prosecutors don't have faith in themselves or have more cases than they can handle and simply plea bargain with bad guys. This is the best I've seen Gerard Butler do since 300. He fares better in serious roles <more>
instead of comedy. Jamie Foxx wasn't his usual self but I give him a B for effort. All in all the movie had some great twists and mind blowing ideas to make it exciting!
I was expecting a lot from Law Abiding Citizen and I'm happy to say I wasn't disappointed. It was action packed and full of twists and turns from start to finish.Within the first 5 minutes I had goosebumps and was overcome with strong emotions as a family is brutally destroyed in the blink of an eye. I then found myself outraged at the "justice" served partially because there hadn't even been a moments respite from the horrific opening scene but also because it showed an all too real flaw in our legal system that many people are forced to swallow on a daily basis. Good <more>
people die and murderers are set free knowing they will more than likely go on to do it all again. And this was just the beginning!From this point, LAC takes you on a roller coaster ride though the story that keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat right up until the end of the movie. I thought F. Gary Gray did a wonderful job as a director on this movie. The complexity involved throughout the entire process of making this movie is evident. Yes, ultimately this is just a movie meant to entertain, but there were so many different levels. Some things that stood out to me most were: - Obviously, the butt kicking! - Gerard Butler's character, Clyde, seamlessly goes from being a husband, father and trusting law abiding citizen to a calculating killer himself with a point to prove. Gerard Butler's performance in this movie is phenomenal! He sucks you in immediately so that you understand and feel his pain and heartbreak but in the next breath he completely puts up a wall and shuts you out so that your only option is to watch, guess and wait for his next move not to mention to be thankful he's not after you. Even as he emotionally shuts you out and his pain becomes his own, he remains truthful and you quickly realize Clyde literally means every word he speaks. One moment this was especially clear is when he says he is going to bring the palace down on top of Nick's Jamie Foxx head who soon finds himself with City Hall about to come crashing down on top of him. - The robotic and often times self serving actions of those in power. So quickly they are willing to make a deal with a criminal or try to pawn them off on someone else so that they don't have to worry about being seen in a negative light. These people are the true sociopaths in my opinion! - Jamie Foxx brilliantly brings life to character who forgets the important things in life as he focuses on the success of his career. Being the best at his job is his top priority even if it means the needs of the people he is supposed to serve and his family are forgotten. He can't even remember the names of the murderers he's freed! - The interaction and banter between Gerard and Jamie is very entertaining and often humorous in a humorless situation. The tragic hero vs. the anti hero. Who do you root for? Are you sure?I highly recommend this film to all. It will not only get your adrenaline pumping, but also rips away your preconceived notions of right and wrong and leaves your senses naked with nothing to hide behind just as Gerard Butler's character strips himself bare after everything he knows, trusts and loves is taken from him . It will force you too look at uncomfortable truths no matter how much you want to look away. I don't believe this movie is meant to make you want to go out and fight the system or even make you think you can repair it's flaws Hello...it's a movie! , but it should make you realize that you can't expect someone else to deal with an ugly situation just so you can be the good guy. We all make our own decisions on how we're going to deal with the hand we've been given. Can you honestly lay your head down at night and say you did what was morally right even if it isn't what's best or most convenient for you? I would say most of us can't.
Great Movie just don't watch the end. (by leathalsac)
I didn't have high expectations for this movie and only went because my friend made me. That being said I loved it. I actually wanted to applaud and cheer at one point and I never do that. Clyde now ranks as on of my favorite characters ever. Now for the bad part. Jamie Foxx was horrible!!!!!!! I don't understand why directors and casting directors like to put bad actors against good actors. It seems to be an ever increasing trend in Hollywood. we saw it in "the Italian job" and we see it here. Jamie's acting was the worst I had seen in a long time. He showed no emotion <more>
at all. I would have liked to see a better actor cast but hey who am I? Also, listen up producers, the ending was ridiculous!!!! I mean come on. you build this character up only for a huge let down. That was by far one of the most irresponsible endings to a movie I have ever had the misfortune to see. When I tell people to see this I am recommending that they leave at a specific point about 15min before it's over and imagine your own ending because no matter what it will be better. Endings like that is the reason people watch independent films. This movie could have been an all time classic but for Jamie Foxx and the writer's lazy ending. It still may because I loved most of it. I pray someday producers figure out that we want something a little different and allow things to end the right way, the responsible way for their viewers.Thank you,
A morality tale with plenty of action (by hyprsleepy)
This is a movie that's extremely fun to watch in the theaters because you get to hear and see everyone's reaction to each of his killings. The best one had people actually saying loudly "wow" and "oh my god!".What drew me to the movie was the fact that the hero wasn't going around killing people with his bare hands or face to face. He was doing it with his mind, with careful planning, and deft precision. That was something refreshing to see. I can totally relate to his feelings of anger over the flaws in the justice system and his desire to take matters into <more>
his own hands - to make things right.The ending was disappointing but the rest of the film was not and I liked it overall.
A solid movie. It was not predictable. The actors were great in their roles except for a sub-par Leslie Bibb TV actress with waning looks . After the first five minutes I thought I made my assumptions of what was going to happen but I was totally wrong.Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx work perfect against each other. There are a few lulls in the movie towards the end but overall it was a real good movie.Perhaps the message of this movie can somehow persuade real change in our legal practices. It is worth seeing. The way the film is shot and the sound effects make this an intense movie.
