  • Payback is a brutally entertaining crime drama that should have been a little more brutal and a little less entertaining. show more

  • Payback has a completely different spirit from "L.A. Confidential'' -- more wild, more silly -- but it has the same attention to the fine points of plot and character. show more

  • Marvin leavened his sociopathy with a hint of little boy naivete or innocence -- Gibson is merely a frequently funny thug. {5 February 1999, Life, p. 11E] show more
