One of my favorite movies

Ugly climate of fear stuff. The cunning is nowhere near adequate compensation for the torture-porn elements.

Builds up suspense the entire movie, only to lead to nothing.

Terrible movie, poorly written, lazily directed. Wish I'd never seen it.

Director, F. Gary Gray (Friday, and Straight Outta Compton) directs a stellar political crime thriller, about a man who overthrows the justice system after justice is failed to be given properly after his wife and little daughter a brutally murdered in a home invasion. The suspense and tension is top notch, and the soundtrack composed by, Brian Tyler, matches the movie perfectly. The acting by Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx is spectacular and wonderful. All together, this movie is action packed AG's merciless.

7/10 - Quite an entertaining ride, it's been a long time since I've enjoined a thriller like this. Ending was a little disappointing though.

i enjoy the story plot. somehow at the end of the movie. you are hoping that this fight would at least end in a draw based on their wits.

absurd...yes. The idea is that of a fantasy of power. The movie has the big problem of being just boring, the expression of all powerfulness is done in an over simplified way, because the movie is so simplistic it becomes just to boring to finish...boring as hell.

This was a pretty great concept. Good twists.. off the chair a few times.. I love a really great "what if" movie..

If you forget about reason and logic, Law Abiding Citizen can be a rather engaging action/suspance movie.
Nonetheless, this movie suffers from a messy and uneven script.

Mindless as expected, which is fine. But ups the anti so far it's comical. What a piece of poo.

Hell of a film with spot-on performances by Butler & Fox!

9/14/2016: A very good revenge action flick with a great cast.

A rather clever thriller with some new twists that you won't expect. If you like action, drama and suspense you'll love this.

Great movie, terrible ending. You would think someone with Butler's character's foresight would have an contingency plan for the final scene.

Law Abiding Citizen is a movie that can't do enough justice. It's the kind of movie that were the criminals know they did wrong, and have no remorse. They enjoy what they do, and get away with it.

I am not sure if this movie said more about me or the concepts it dealt with. I was rooting for Butler at times and at others times appalled by his ruthlessness. Toss in some great action and a decent surprise at the end and it made for great fun. Don't take it too seriously or you will miss the point.

Didn't like the ending.

Interesting film from Butler in which his game of cat and mouse with Foxx and the U.S. legal system turns nasty.
Again the acting is very good there are some great death scenes and the story line is good enough to carry the film along well.
