Here's yet another preposterous action movie that's made watchable by a skilful director and an engaging cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

It soon collapses into violent and boring nonsense.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
May 2, 2013
A lifeless attempt to fuse a taut crime thriller and a complex psychological drama.
May 2, 2013
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.

Oplev, who made The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, can do this stuff in his sleep and somnambulism is largely the style here.
May 2, 2013
This is too dull to function as a thriller and too silly to qualify as anything else.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 2, 2013
A disappointingly by-the-numbers revenge yarn unspieled at great length ...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 2, 2013
Any film in which Isabelle Huppert is cast and then given absolutely nothing to do is a crime against cinema.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 2, 2013
Visual style and strong characters aren't enough to make up for a deeply flawed script that fails to make logical sense.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 2, 2013
Scrapes a pass thanks to offbeat performances and a couple of enjoyably preposterous action sequences.

Dead Man Down is gripping.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
April 30, 2013
A way-too-leisurely thriller whose destination is fairly obvious from early on, but to which the talented cast apply themselves with effortful seriousness.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 30, 2013
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 ...

April 28, 2013
A pleasingly intricate double (or is it triple?) revenge plot anchored by excellent acting, with a terrific burst of action at the climax.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 22, 2013
A jagged, unbalanced (in every sense) revenge flick that nonetheless offers up twists and brooding noir-ness.

March 15, 2013
The brightest attraction in this gripping potboiler is the cast, which is loaded to the gills with high pedigree actors like Isabelle Huppert, who comes just shy of stealing the show as Rapace's comically deaf mother.
March 15, 2013
When an early shootout erupts with a reggae-beat score, it's clear this director sees carnage as nothing more than an opportunity for music-video production values.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

There's a small writing problem.
March 13, 2013
Once again Farrell is better than the material he is given - so is Rapace.

I'm not sure what the attraction was supposed to be here - plot holes and pretentious patter?
