Law Abiding Citizen
I chose Law Abiding Citizen for today's post. Law Abiding Citizen was directed by F. Gary Gray and was released last year. The movie stars Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx. The movie starts with Gerard Butler's character witnessing the rape and murder of his wife and daughter. Two men were responsible for the murder, but one ultimately gets away with only 7 years to life. Butler's character then sets out his own vendetta against the court system because he feels that there wasn't justice with his wife and daughter's case. He takes matters into his own hands and ends up going to jail. After some well plotted murders by Butler's character, it's Jamie Foxx's role to figure how he's killing people while in jail. The movie is absolutely superb and it definitely will have your attention to the very end. Rotten Tomatoes has the movie rated at a 26% which is an absolute travesty. I guarantee if you're looking for a thriller this movie will definitely leave you satisfied.
