  • The film has been directed in a murky, rhythmless fashion by Niels Arden Oplev. show more

  • More of a character-etched mood piece than a tautly calibrated caper, Dead Man Down benefits from potent visuals and a compelling international cast that also includes lead Colin Farrell, Terrence Howard and Isabelle Huppert. show more

  • J.H. Wyman's script is grim and fairly audacious, without anything so goofy as the silliest stuff in "Dragon Tattoo." The story involves some Grand Guignol violence, but its wildest notion is that a suicide-mission plot might somehow yield a happy ending. show more

    Approved! I would imagine anyone who would prefer unrealistic movements in action movies, (such as floating in the air before kicking) probably would think this movie is a little too realistic haha. Seriously though, i wouldn't mind watching this again when it comes out on dvd
