Short Story: Forget romantic sunsets and long walks on the beach. In Dead Man Down, the common ground between Victor (Colin Farrell) and Beatrice (Noomi Rapace) is a mutual interest in exacting revenge on their enemies. Victor is plotting against crime kingpin Alphonse (Terrence Howard), a man who has shattered Victor's happiness. But when Beatrice needs help getting redemption of her own, she and Victor find themselves in a tangled web of lies and deceit. Sounds scintillating! Click here for the official movie site!
Good for Kids? Coming from Niels Arden Oplev, the director of Sweden's original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo film, Dead Man Down is certainly unsuitable for young viewers. The film is rated R, primarily for violence and language throughout.
