    Synopsis


    Dead Man Down
    Director Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) makes his eagerly anticipated English-language-feature debut with this action thriller about a tough New York City enforcer and an alluring blackmailer who both put their lives on the line to seek vengeance against one of the city's most powerful crime bosses. Victor (Colin Farrell) isn't the type of man you want to come knocking at your door. A deadeye who always hits his mark, Victor works for the man who controls New York's entire underworld. But when the ruthless crime lord gives an order that results in the deaths of Victor's right-hand man's wife and daughter, he earns himself a dangerous enemy. Meanwhile, as Victor attempts to identify the unknown figure who's threatening his boss's life, the mysterious Beatrice (Noomi Rapace) ensnares the sleuthing hit man in a dangerous web of blackmail and seduction. Later, when the bullets start to fly, the lust for vengeance threatens to consume everyone involved. Terrence Howard and Dominic Cooper co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      One of Colin Farrell's best

      I originally picked this movie up on DVD, but I liked it so much I went out and bought the blu ray of it so I could see it in it's full glory...and at $9.99 it's a fantastic deal on one of Colin Farrell's best movies in years, not to mention the great performance by Noomi Rapace. Without trying to give away too much, Colin is basically a man with a personal score to settle with some unsavory characters. Noomi plays a woman in the neighboring building who accidentally sees Colin handling some of his "business" through his apartment window. She has a vendetta of her own to settle and sees Colin's character as a means to an end for that. What starts out as an almost "blackmail" situation evolves into complicated but genuine relationship against the backdrop of his personal vendetta coming to a violent and dangerous climax that could get them both killed. If you like action films that actually have some great writing and character development to them, then this one is for you.

      If you want to see two great actors go head to head and face off in a gritty crime-drama/thriller then you need to definitely check this movie out. Colin Farrell and Terrence Howard are at odds with each other in this movie and acting wise, neither one backs down or gives up any ground. Both men put forth A+ performances and are scary believable in their evil and meticulous roles. The action is nonstop until the very end, you will truly enjoy this one.

      I guess the storyline isn't so much new, as is well executed. The characters aren't over the top crazy or goody goody. It's a straight forward revenge plot with a little potential romance thrown in to give the movie a little more character development. All the actors are top notch, especially Noomi (dragon tatoo) Repace, and Colin Farrell.

      I saw the trailer and decided to buy this blu-ray because I liked the stylish look / camera work, plus the story looked interesting. However, I wasn't overly impressed by the cinematography while watching the film. The story was good though, but this film isn't exactly a sleeper hit, just average.

      Dead Man Down is a pretty decent action/thriller/suspense movie. It has really good actors with good acting. The Bluray version is excellent. The picture is really good and the sound is great, especially in the action sequences. I bought this for $4.99 as a blind buy and it was worth it.

      I wasn't expecting much going into the start of this movie, but during it I found it to be a fun watch. Characters were interesting, and the actions scenes were cool too. Definitely worth a see even though it doesn't get much pub.

      I was really looking forward to this film, however I was let down. It was slow in parts and fast in others. The performances were okay but you should watch it before you buy it.

      I had a DVD version of the film but this new Blu-ray blows the old one out of the water. It is action-packed and the excellent cast makes DEAD MAN DOWN on of my favorite thrillers ever.
