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.
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!
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
