Law Abiding Citizen is a cinematic masterpiece. Okay I don't know if it is actually that but it is pretty awesome. My expectations weren't that high going into this flick because IMDB only had it as a 7.5 out of 10. I checked out the votes and some people actually gave it a 1 out of 10, freaking morons!! I would give it 5 out of 5 stars. It blew me away. Usually I can find something about a movie that I didn't like but not this one.
It has a phenomenal storyline and cast. Gerard Butler is really becoming a superb actor. I found myself rooting for him even though he turned out to be the bad guy. Jamie Foxx wasn't too shabby himself as he was trying to figure out Butler's mind games. The death scenes in this movie are crazy, shocking and a little gruesome. You are probably wondering how he continues to kill while he in locked up in prison. Well I would suggest getting to the theater as soon as possible before your friends ruin it for you. There is always that one dick of a friend that tells you the ending. Don't be that friend.
This movie really breaks down our justice system and how it's structure is corrupt and criminals aren't rightly prosecuted. Butler takes matters into his own hands as he takes revenge on his family's murderers and the people that didn't serve them justice. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see who Butler would kill next and how he would accomplish it. F. Gary Gray directs an action packed thrill ride of excitement. F. Gary Gray has another film coming out soon called Armored that looks pretty cool too. Don't wait for the dvd, go see it in the theater. My opinion matters.
