Excellent and clever thriller. A bit graphic, but keeps you on the edge of your seat and delivers a great moral dilemma. Excellent acting and cast. Highly recommended.

Ignore critics. Most are out of touch and despise fun.

Liked the movie in spite of the melodramatic, overdone ending, and some ridiculously amateurish acting,

Personally, I loved it. The story made sense to me, since his family was killed, but, his sociopathic tendencies, while making sense, looses its possibility when he cries over his daughter.

Unbelievable story, and over the top violence leave this film feeling empty and hyperbolic. Gore fest with poor acting with decent practitioners of the craft

There's no denying that Law Abiding Citizen's plot is flawed and a little over the top. However, intriguing performances by Jaimie Fox and Gerard Butler and an awesome revenge premise allows Law Abiding Citizen to be a watchable and at times, a downright fun popcorn movie.

this is one of the best movies of the year. I was blown away by the twists and turns. you won't want to look away. Gerard as you have wanted to see him since his performance in 300.

I love vigilante movies and this is one of my all-time favorites. Gerard Butler is awesome in this movie. His character is relatable as a father who loses his family and when the system fails him he does what any father or husband would do or at least want to do and that is to make the responsible party pay. As an extremely intelligent and focused grieving family man he makes those responsible pay dearly. Great flick!

Critics love to praise boring rehash copycat movies. This original thriller is an experience to behold. Of course it's not very realistic but very entertaining.

I made this account just to down vote this awful movie. I'm genuinely awestruck that prior got paid for this

A great revenge thriller, though you may have to turn your brain off for some of the logic holes. It's unapologetically violent and pulse pounding, but the acting leaves a lot to be desired.

Really good fast paced thriller although the ending was a bit of a letdown for me!

A bit far fetched but fun to watch.

If Saw was about lawyers

Good first half but it slides into absurdity.

The Vigilanti was excellent. I like the smart ones. I'd watch this one again.

Awesome revenge thriller. The way the pieces are orchestrated are so satisfying. Why can't we get a Batman movie like this...?

the ending sucked but movie was great. I liked it till it ended. i don't mind bulter dying but jamie foxx was wrong and bad and he never realized it. great movie with terrible ending. what was really bad was that butler was so smart but he did not sense people coming in his property and searching and then covering up it. common a man that smart can sense it even we can sense it if we are suspicious and doing something like that. ending did not make any sense it killed the whole movie
