This was an excellent movie, well done storyline and acting by everyone. It has just enough grit to it to keep you interested and just enough mystery to it so you don't know the outcome.

Clever, Entertaining Thriller
Terence Allen | Atlanta, GA USA | 10/22/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Law Abiding Citizen," the new thriller with Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx, is an interesting revenge thriller that takes the viewer to some unexpected places and provokes thoughtful conversations and introspection. Regardless of any drawbacks that the film may have, and it is certainly not perfect, it makes valid points about the sometimes arbitrary nature of the criminal justice system.

Gerard Butler stars as an engineer whose seemingly peaceful life is shattered when two men break into his house, injure him, and kill his wife and daughter. Grieving, but obviously believing that his case is clear cut, he is stunned when the young assistant DA prosecuting the case, played by Jamie Foxx, makes a deal that allows a reduced sentence for the killer of the wife and child in exchange for his testimony against the other man.

Ten years later, as the man convicted of murder is facing lethal injection, Butler's long-planned revenge plot begins to unfold. We find out that Butler is not who he has seemed to be, and that the now senior assistant DA Foxx has his hand full with a clever resourceful advesary.

This film is not for the squeamish, has several shocks and surprises, and is meditative and thoughtful. It is a suprisingly good thriller considering how bad it could have been with a lesser cast, script, and direction."
Pretty Good!!!

"This movie was a lot better than I had expected. To me, it was like a mix of 'Saw' and 'Max Payne. Gerard Butler does an awesome job as a psychotic man with nothing to lose. Ten years after a home invasion that leaves his wife and daughter dead, Clyde Shelton returns to seek true justice. I love when he dismembers the man who murdered them. When Clyde is sent to jail, people are still dying in mysterious ways, and Nick Rice tries to stop it. When Rice interrogates Clyde, he wants something in return such as his iPod, and a steak. Soon, nobody feels safe leaving their homes, because they don't know where or when Clyde will strike next. Does he have an accomplice? I highly recommend LAW ABIDING CITIZEN!!!"
Good Movie Marred By a Hackneyed Ending

"Law Abiding Citizen features a fairly unique premise in its portrayal of a desperate man wronged by the justice system. Gerald Butler stars as Clyde Shelton, a family man who witnesses the brutal murders of his wife and child only to watch one of the killers go free after serving a short prison term. The film certainly stretches reality, and while Butler gives an incredible performance, the notion that the audience is supposed to root for a diabolical serial killer is a bit unnerving. Clyde not only dispatches the men who were responsible for the actual crime--he goes on to execute every other party involved in the legal proceedings (including innocents). The movie urges the audience to root for Clyde, even as he crafts himself into the mold of a Hannibal Lecter type villain. This premise could have worked out decently if the directors were to stick to this formula (which was done much more convincingly in Seven), but the film plunges into stupidity with a nonsensical ending that reeks of overblown sentimentality."
