Movie review: (drama/thriller) “Law Abiding Citizen” (2009)

December 10, 2010 at 7:12 pm (Uncategorized)

  This is a goofy-ass movie. It starts off realistic, then veers into bizarro fantasy Hollywoodland. I did enjoy it, though. Especiially the middle of the movie, where people are getting killed left and right by crazy Rube Goldberg mad scient…ist contraptions.

Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler are both very good in their roles, despite the silliness of the script. I did find it a little disturbing to hear a black man snarl “F*ck his civil rights!” at one point. I mean, it seems to me that black people get their civil rights f*cked with all the time. But not if you’re a Hollywood A-lister, I guess.

Anyway. The movie’s too long. The gruesome and ridiculous gadget murders are the best part. Keep your fast-forward button handy.

-Rated R
-3 out of 5 stars
-Some very disturbing content–maybe OK for older teens
