Saw this movie tonight based entirely on the movie poster. Kevin Bacon plays a father of two who's oldest son is murdered before his eyes. Instead of testifying and allowing the killer to get a plea bargain, he recants his statement and instead goes Charlie Bronson on the guys who did it.


There were two scenes that were a bit unbelievable, but other than that, this is a great movie. Lots of gut wrenching sadness (Bacon and Kelly Preston were fantastic) as well as nice revenge killings.

I'd recommend it!

Plus, John Goodman is in it, so you know it's good!

Um... how did he look? I'm just saying, there are fewer people in this world that I have seen that have looked worse than Goodman on Studio 60. I am honestly worried.

This movie was a pile of garbage. It had a chance to be something interesting after the fight in the parking garage, but it was all downhill after that. It degenerated into comic-book silliness. Aisha Tyler's character was one of the worst movie cops of all time.

On one hand, I agree, she was useless as a detective, but on the other hand, it felt like she was playing a more realistic cop who really just didn't give a shit who killed who cause Kevin Bacon's character was a rich jerk who had everything and the gangbangers who he was killing deserved what they were getting. It felt like she was just waiting for the smoke to clear and make her arrests when there was only one of them left. Which is kinda smart, but shitty for a public defender who is supposed to stop that shit from happening.

I thought the movie was pretty great. It reminded me of all those late 70s early 80s flicks like EXECUTIONER 2 or any movie starring Martin Kove.

Hard to believe they filmed the garage scene all in one take; that's outstanding.

Kevin Bacon kicked ass. He deserves an award for this, in my opinion... an I'm not talking about a Razzie. This was far better then that shit movie coming out with Jodie Foster. Damn that shit looks fucking horrible. There was a preview for it before this movie and the whole audience was laughing at it, and not in a good way. The whole "I want my dog back!" line is fucking stupid as hell.

If it was anyone else besides Tom Hardy, I would so glorified henchmen. Bane is interesting character when he first debuted then slowly began to deteriorate into random big dude.
