Dead Man Down Reviews

Russell Hainline
Movie Mezzanine

It gives us no real themes to marinate upon, yet it gives us very little memorable action in which to revel. It's simply a mish-mosh and a shame.

Revenge never felt less sweet.

Daily Star

There are a couple of decent action scenes but this is just too ridiculous to be taken as seriously as it expects to be. With a slight re-edit, it could be re-released as Naked Gun 4.

Dead Man Down feels like two different films struggling against each other. One a brooding Euro thriller, the other a clunky Hollywood actioner. Neither really works.

We Got This Covered

While Dead Man Down has a talented cast in Farrell, Rapace, and Howard, it ends up being a rather bland take on the revenge thriller, offering nothing new or stimulating to the genre.

Dead Man Down is really sluggish at first, but tends to be really compelling in this overpowering "so bad it's good" kind of way. Good, bad, even "Dead Man Down" can't seem to decide.

It doesn't help the effort to be serious when the villains are so cartoonish and simple they should've tried to plant their crime ring in Oz

The action merely meanders when it should be hurtling forward, running in circles when one expects it to head toward a conclusion or some sense of resolution.

By the time Dead Man Down descends into ultra-violence, you'll be long past caring.

Oh, to be Colin Farrell and look simply smashing in a pouring rainstorm, a raging wind tunnel or bleeding profusely from the head. Too bad he can't look good while acting out a bad screenplay. (Complete Content Details for Parents also available)

Any film in which Isabelle Huppert is cast and then given absolutely nothing to do is a crime against cinema.

Random, ridiculous, badly acted. Maybe it would make more sense in Swedish, with subtitles.

Birmingham Mail

As with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Oplev uses darkness to convey atmosphere despite the overt crispness of the movie's digital look. Some old-fashioned celluloid grain would have done it the world of good.

The List

This convoluted thriller's nondescript title is a pointer to its flaws: unfocused and overlong, its swill of criminal characters and sub-plots feel like an unfinished work-in-progress ...

Explores a common ground for noir thrillers before stumbling and imploding in a climax that feels like it might have been hijacked from an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie.

What the Flick?!

There's a crazypants crime movie and the damaged-people-find-each-other relationship movie, but together, it's a jambalaya that doesn't work.

You are left feeling sorry for the actors who do their best, including Britain's Dominic Cooper, wasted as a dorkish gangster colleague of Victor's.

I can see people renting this over VOD. I can also see a lot of people turning to the person next to them on the couch and asking "do you want to finish this?"

Whoever made the trailer for Dead Man Down is a genius because that quick assembly of moments from the movie is exciting, clear and clever -- all the things the movie is not.

This is too dull to function as a thriller and too silly to qualify as anything else.
