The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Law Abiding Citizen (2009)



Starring: Gerard Butler, Jamie Fox
Director: F. Gary Gray


Premise:
A man's wife and child are murdered. His attorney takes a plea bargain as one of the murderer confesses against the other for a lesser sentence. Years later the man decides to get justice he feels he deserve and put the entire system under a microscope.

My Take:
I'm surprised. I enjoyed the movie far more than I anticipated. However after a solid first half filled with over the top gore and a solid story, the second half falls into more of the typical Hollywood action movie. That's when my interest started falling off.

Rating: In the middle (side of warning)
