We have taken some photos of "Law Abiding Citizen". They represent actual movie quality.
Gerard Butler who played the Phantom of the Opera in 2004 plays Clyde,one man who wants to clean up the problems in the US Justice system andavenge the murder of his wife and daughter. In a way, this role is notunlike the Phantom. Especially when he gets that murderer and kills himand dismembers him in the most painful way possible. His continuationof a series of people involved with the case is quite a series ofkillings.Jamie Foxx plays the DA involved in the case who lets Clyde's wife'skiller walk free after 5 years in order to get a death sentence to theguy who did not kill them. Foxx is a man who as part of the justicesystem compromises justice in order to get his own personal convictionrecords. He is as flawed as the system he is a part of.What works here is the time clock effect because Clyde is saving the DAfor last because he wants him to suffer through all the others deathsbefore then. The film becomes a race against time for Foxx to savehimself, and while the ending is a bit different, Foxx DA does exactlywhat you'd expect him to do. He figures out how Clyde is doing it andthen compromise his principles yet one more time and lets Clyde killhimself.In a way there is a delicious sequel here as Foxx is so compromised bythis ending, should have the story continued on how he continues tocompromise the justice system, or will he just let his ego continue theway he has this entire movie? Butler & Foxx perform well in this movie.Their characters are the movie and leaving Foxx corrupt DA compromisedat the end makes me wonder if there could be a sequel coming as justicedoes not win in this one.
Watched this for the first time and although Clyde Shelton carried thismovie from beginning to end, for me it was a very weak ending andoverall a disappointment after a very good start and middle. I agreethat Janie Foxx although tried his best he was overall miscast in thisfilm. For me the biggest disappointment came when the totallyimplausible scenario arrived in finding the tunnel under prison. How onearth could he plan for this tunnel to be under the prison he was senttoo and better still how could he have planned for the exact solitarycell he was appointed to when 99% of prisons have at least six to tensolitary confinements ?
This review is from: Law Abiding Citizen (DVD) This is a good movie; it keeps you on your toes. All of the characters are wonderful actors. I would purchase again...
It was an ok movie overall if you are not squeamish and suspend your disbelief....But still: Who signs off on a plan to pick up a napalm bomb, drive it across town, sneak it under this man's bed, and then offer him the opportunity to blow it up, taking an entire prison wing with it?! A first-grader would have taken the bomb to an empty field. Considering they had found his hidden exit and weapon's cache, the man was neutralized as a threat. That ending made no sense whatsoever.
my title pretty much sums up how i feel about the film but Butler and Foxx are very good in it. surprised to see Kurt Wimmer's name in the credits for it though.
If you are like me who is fond of revenge movies you will be hookeduntil the end of the movie. Although the underlying theme has been donein the past, the moral twists and gradual build up of tension does makethe movie stand out. Audience get a feeling that Clyde, who beenwronged at an unimaginable scale deserves a fiery vengeance but hisactions present a moral dilemma and that forms the backbone of thestory. Clyde's nemesis Nick's character is also deep. Nick is presentedas a lawyer who had tried to find his own way to success through hislife while conforming and promoting the corrupt system until Clydecomes to picture.Writers has unfortunately took the safe road regarding the ending. Itoffers no satisfaction and looks as if someone put a red tape over theoriginal ending.Overall i consider the movie as a must see.
The large number of reviews here ended up confusing me more than helping me, so I took a chance and watched the movie.This is a diverting crime drama that is well-paced, preposterously plotted, and well acted, except perhaps for Mr.Foxx. It is an expertly crafted entertainment that will please fans of action and crime. The one star reviews by people that expected more aren't wrong, they're just akin to a professional food writer reviewing a burger joint. For what it is and what it's intended to be, the film works and is a lot of fun.You'll be glad you saw it.
Finally again another entertaining movie that was fast paced and fullof emotions. What I didn't like was that there were some unnecessarybloody and violent scenes. The story hits no doubt a very importantproblem of the justice system and it is presented somehow tooexaggerated but on the moral level throughout correct andcomprehensive.Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx delivered a very respectable performanceand especially Butler convinced me very much. Director F. Gray-Graybecomes more and more a great action specialist that can mixinteresting themes in a well packed thriller. I hope he will get oncethe director job for the next James Bond movie.Final vote: 6.5/10.
I'll start by stating the obvious; You just can't make enough malerevenge fantasies can you, Hollywood? I believe at this point, it's oneout of every 3 movies. There's a lot of angst out there that theprimates need to work out, no?What a piece of garbage this film is. It doesn't even have the guts tofollow through with it's inane premise in a remotely logical orinteresting way and veers off into wonder bread land because in the endwe wouldn't want to make the natives restless. I find it hilarious thatthere are people who claim Hollywood is a subversive culture.Subservient is the correct adjective.If I was to undergo a frontal lobotomy and was fed 3 bottles of JackDaniels immediately after the operation, I might come up with somethingas idiotic as this film. It takes talent to be this awful. Mycondolences to those involved.
I have seen the movie more than 5 times ,still i feel like i want tosee it one more time just for Gerard butler's acting..! With that beingsaid,I found few key points that has not been clearly shown or u maycall it a mistake or something like that.! * When Clayton(Gerard)claims for no evidence provided , Nick (fox) stands like an idiot onthe court. Well that's true, but when Clayton kills derby and leavesthe scene he throws the car keys to the tied police man at the back ofthe car with bare hands and even touches the car ,the car as shown inthe film was left in the same scene of murder.Claytons finger prints onthe car would be a clear evidence ,tire marks of Clayton's car on thescene of murder would be another evidence, !! *When the judge is beingshot dead , why did chief and Nic (Fox) wasn't thinking or chasing thatthere might be someone (expecting to be Clayton) on the oppositebuilding who just shot the judge and is trying to escape??? *Ofcoursethe climax when Clayton was caught red handed by Fox in the cell,Clayton behaves stupid to activate the bomb that proves that thischaracter is so dumb..! which is contradictory to his brilliance.! itdestroys the confidence we have on the character.! bcoz when Claytonfinds Fox in the cell it is clear that he definitely knows the wholeplans of Clayton,and there are chances that bomb might be deactivatedbut he still activates the bomb.! What so ever i still like the movie,Justice always had it's limitations and down side.!
This review is from: Law Abiding Citizen (DVD) Unfortunately I saw the film an TV where it was heavily censored, so I'm looking forward to the DVD. I was always a follower of the Old Testament (an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth etc.) and the performance of Gerard Butler was stellar. I found it interesting when Butler insulted the judge and showed her the shortcomings of the US legal system which in my opinion is one of the strongest scenes in the film. When he wreaks havoc (as he said himself in the movie in the biblical sense of the word) noboddy can blame him for doing something wrong and I found myself cheering when one of the hypocrites bit the dust. Still there is some small criticism I have to place here: The ending sucked. I don't want to spoil it here, but see for yourself. Something different would have been more appropriate.
...and all other as well. Plot has deep impact, audience emotionallyvaries while conclusion is made in sort of glorified point of view.Brings you both satisfaction and belief that eventually things are putin right place! Movie has rough and quite raw beginning which will makeyou take a set for almost two hours without loosing sight ofscreen...not for a moment...I sincerely believe that we all have shared feelings on topic thismovie presents, therefore i'm almost certain 99% of viewers will besatisfied and what the most important....impressed by performance andgeneral idea this movie delivers.No one can't escape faith...but many can postpone it! I give this movie9 for two reasons.... 1 reason combines both main actors as one of myfavorites... 2 reason: i think i'll give 10 only to movie about me ;)Enjoy this great movie.
I'm not going to make a long review because what I feel about thismovie has been said over and over.The premise is classic: some random guy gets to see his daughter andwife murdered in front of him and seeks to make his own justice afterhaving to witness the real justice basically letting the bad guys runfree.From there on, the movie got me hooked in the approach Butler'scharacter takes to get his "revenge" (even though he says it's notabout revenge). It's pretty smart and will have you question yourselfall the time with stuff like "what is his end game?" or "what is goingto happen next?". The other great thing is that it's hard to decide whothe bad guy really is: do I feel for the guy who saw his familymurdered and does what anyone else would by killing everyone or for thelawyer who isn't really a bad guy but is also responsible for thishappening? Hard choice.Hard choice? Yeah, it's a hard choice until about 4 minutes from theend of the movie, where it all goes to s h i t. Sorry, I don't have anyother word for it. The ending feels like it was rushed, it makes nosense whatsoever (really, it doesn't) and will have you wonder whothought of it so you could punch him in the face senseless.I'll still give the movie 7/10 because it entertained me and I didn'tsee the 2 hours pass. Too bad the ending was so bad, could have been acult movie.
Recently,I watched Law Abiding Citizen (I liked the film title,nothingcould have defined the film better than this!) on television,though theplot was good,the story was progressing very well and the motive forrevenge was established;but being a scriptwriter myself,I felt that thefilm could have been even better and somewhere,somehow,something didn'tconnect with me.1)In the film,I clearly remember Clyde (Gerard Butler)making anemphatic point that the end would be Biblical but I found nothing ofthat sort really happening! All I found was that in the end a righteousman was persecuted and the unrighteous prevailed! For starters, LawAbiding Citizen is about two principal characters Clyde and Nick(JamieFoxx).Nick becomes the focal point of the film when he knowinglypartakes in the miscarriage of justice in the brutal massacre ofClyde's family which is responsible for Clyde's transformation from afamily-loving man and a law abiding citizen to a man unleashing hiswrath and fury against the system. 2)I felt that in the narrative of the film, if the director chose tometamorphose Clyde's life in the span of ten years then Nick's lifeshould also have been marred by a life-changing incident,like say forinstance if he had lost his first-born to a serial child killer wherethe killers got away with lightly for the crime and despite all this hekept his sanity,the end would have been justified at Clyde's death. 3)Alternately,perhaps if somewhere mid-way during the film by a twistof circumstances if Nick's family would also have met a similar fate asClyde's;perhaps he loses his daughter by some hound on the run which inturn would leave Nick shattered, then the climax could have very wellbeen an open-ended one and a probable dialogue I imagine is Clydetelling Nick,"So how are you feeling Nick? We're even...!" Perhaps,thisfilm could have had a sequel too where Nick is waging his battleagainst the system in Law Abiding Citizen-II. 4)And as a viewer what I found even strange was that while Clyde burns,Nick is shown enjoying a cello performance by his daughter!! I mean...the message is not positive..Nick cannot be exonerated for a crimewhich festered and manifested itself in the form of Clyde! Do youagree? What do you have to say about it?

I first saw Gerard Butler in Mrs Brown (1997), but didn't know it. Inext saw him in Dear Frankie (2004) and The Phantom of the Opera(2004), both of which made me realize how good a performer he is.So this is the fourth time I've seen him. I wished I'd passed becausethis film is beyond belief, literally and figuratively. Butler did thisone for the money, that's for sure: there can be no other reason forsuch a talented actor to waste his time, my time and my money.Where to start? Perhaps by saying: don't bother. Or Â burn notice. Or Âtell it to the Marines. Or Â get Dexter to do a number on all copies.Or Â don't ban nukes, ban this excuse for a movie. Or whatever turnsyou on...Because dear viewer, you'll go a long, long way before you see anothermovie that is worse. Why? Okay, here's what it's about: with a nod toMichael Winner's winning story about some guy's Death Wish(1974), ClydeShelton (Butler) decides to avenge the cruel murder of his family byhome invaders when justice is denied by a corrupt system and officials.He devises and sets in motion a ten Â yes, TEN Â year plan to wreakhavoc, Armageddon-like, upon a system that must be destroyed to be maderight. Talk about having patience, huh?But, it gets worse because, to get the ball rolling, Shelton has to getinto prison. To do that, he starts murdering the bad guys who murderedhis family. And, when being questioned in prison, he murders otherswhile he's there. Because why? Because he's a solitary guy and wants tobe left alone... To tell you more will reveal the whole fatuous reasoning behindShelton's actions. So, if you really want to bring out the masochist inyou, go see it. The better thing to do is to vote with your absence tosend this movie to trash video and hope the producers lose a bundle.They deserve to.Because, in their desire to make a statement about the sorry state ofthe American criminal justice system, they have simply traded on thebase machismo of an eye-for-an-eye theme and presented the whole thingseriously, instead of satirically. In doing so, they have, instead,prostituted the whole concept of justice Â simply and simplistically Âin an attempt to make aÂ buck Â or too many.Yes, it's that bad. If I could give a zero out of ten, I would. One isfar too much. I've never said that before about any movie, but this onedeserves it.
This was a very good movie. The way the movie panned out about who isthe good or bad guy completely goes against what you thought. The waythe movie's killings were set up was very good. You will be at the edgeof your seat scene after scene because you don't know whether or notthe person in the scene is going to die. With all of this being saidthere were also some very weak spots. When we find out how Clyde isgetting out of the prison to kill all of these people is very weak. Hesomehow has an underground tunnel that leads to the prison, although hedid by properties around the prison to make the tunnel it still feltvery unrealistic. I would recommend this movie to anybody! 8 out of 10!
my wife bought it and it turned out to be really good. part count of monte cristo and part se7en. a hollywood movie that ridicules the flaws of our justice system? yup, and done well.
This review is from: Law Abiding Citizen [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray) I wonder how much of Gerard Butler's law education helped him with this role? Well done.
Is it just me or has Gerard Butler been getting more attention lately?I respect the fact that he is versatile and change from playing aplethora of roles ranging from the rough and rugged Spartan in "300"and then next thing you know he'll embrace you with his charm and witin the romantic comedy "P.S. I Love You". Now in "Law Abiding Citizen",he's getting the adulation from the smart viewers all the while lookingintimidating, carrying that rage that's brewing in him throughout thefilm. The opening scene in the movie commences with a break-in in which ClydeShelton's (Butler) wife and daughter are killed. During the trial,attorney Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx) negotiates that the killer will servefive years in jail and his accomplice will get the death penalty. Thisdoesn't sit very well for the angered Clyde feeling that the accomplicewas got the worst end of the sentence. Ten years later, we see avengeful Clyde ready to take justice in his own hands. But Nick isdumbfounded as he tries to elaborate the motives behind Clyde'smotives. What differs this movie from F. Gary Gray's previous project, "TheNegotiator" the action gets fueled up a notch. And while Foxx andButler's pairing pales in comparison to Samuel L. Jackson and KevinSpacey, the twists and turns in "Law Abiding Citizen" will keep youenthralled. But the motives behind the proceedings take an upsettingbackseat. Screenwriter Kurt Wimmer manages to pull off a handsome solution to theconclusion of the film, but it's unclear of what they were trying toget at. It boggles the mind as to whether Wimmer pondered with morethan one conclusion and I have doubts as to whether the one he selectedwas a wise decision. The premise was well in intentions, but the endingleft me with an empty unsatisfying feeling. Others may feel differentlyabout it saying it was the perfect way to wrap up this movie. What irksme is that the justice in the end remains unclear.Overall it was an honor to watch. The tension brewing between Foxx andButler was a treat for the eyes. The supporting cast backs up the twoleads, but it's the duo of Foxx and Butler that carry the film. Thoughnot as strong as "The Negotiator" but the entertainment is well aboveaverage.
Law Abiding Citizen is a violent film that gets progressively worseuntil the credits start rolling. By half-way through the movie I wasquite surprised by the polish and cinematic value I was getting fromLaw Abiding Citizen, but then it becomes absurd and just plain dumb.The acting is awkward. Two actors are thinking masterpiece whileeveryone else has cheesy B-horror on their mind. Butler, without muchcompetition, gives his best performance, and Fox gives his usual greatperformance, while nearly everyone else gives the level of acting onemight expect from a Saw flick. I despise the fact that there arenumerous unanswered questions in Law Abiding Citizen. With all of thenegatives said, I still enjoyed it. It is a fun mash-up of gory horror,action and a tiny bit of drama thrown in. Is this movie for you? If theplot interest you, then you will most-likely receive a little enjoymentout of Law Abiding Citizen. Just don't forget to turn off your brainfirst.
