Movie Review by Movie Addict
March 12th, 2007

Vicarious Revenge

What can I say. This movie is the one to watch when you are angry with
someone. Through Mel Gibson, you can experience your anger and
frustration and get that vicarious revenge.

Gibson's character just wanted what was due; nothing more or less. He
methodically went up the line to get it. He was clever and ruthless. In
the end...well, I won't tell you that. I have to say that I got the
best of all those who wronged me through Porter.

With the possible exception of Braveheart, this is Gibson's best. He
makes Richard Stark's book come to life on the big screen in a way that
it is a pleasure to watch again and again. And, hey, it has Maria
Bello, and that gives it an additional star.

Besides, it's cheap therapy.
