Movie Review – Law Abiding Citizen

Well developed, yet weirdly flat, revenge thriller putting Gerard Butler up against the always-reliable Jamie Foxx, as a man whose thirst for justice for his murdered family threatens to bring down a city. F Gary Gray, a reliable and perfunctory director (of such works as Frequency) often hits the mark here, but is let down by some moments of “meh”. Overall, a solid thriller with a great twist, but it’s unable to make the transition to truly great.
