4.0 out of 5 stars Far-fetched fun, 12 Aug 2013
This review is from: Law Abiding Citizen [DVD] (DVD)
There is only one thing you need to know before watching `Law Abiding Citizen' and that is: how much can you suspend your disbelief?

If the answer is, `Not a lot - I like my films realistic,' then don't bother watching this. However, if you can overlook one plot hole after the next and just gloss over the numerous coincidences which need to occur simply to move the plot forward, then you'll probably enjoy this.

Luckily - for me - I simply allowed myself to get swept along in what is quite a novel and fast-paced story where `everyman' Gerard Butler's family gets killed, but the killers cannot be prosecuted, thanks somewhat to lawyer Jamie Foxx. Therefore, ten years later, Butler decides to invoke his own style of justice.

What follows is one pretty clever and gruesome way of killing someone after the next. You'll find yourself both sympathising and hating Butler's character, while Foxx isn't to be outdone on the acting stakes, as he comes across as both slick and vulnerable all at the same time.

Basically, if you like your action/revenge/thrillers loud, dumb and full of loop-holes, then you'll like this. If you're expecting absolute realism then you'll hate it.
