A pleasingly intricate double (or is it triple?) revenge plot anchored by excellent acting, with a terrific burst of action at the climax.
I like this film, and have no hesitation recommending it to fans of the genre.
In many ways, “Dead Man Down” is a boilerplate revenge thriller.
...it’s nothing like most of what you’ve seen from the genre before. This movie is really an unapologetic melodrama -- one that just happens to be punctuated by torturous grit and absolutely bonkers action sequences.
