  • 2 stars "You can watch this 2 star version or the original 5 star one. No contest to which one is best. Just another example of non creatives taking something good screwing it up."
  • 4 stars "Pretty cool. But homefront was better"
  • 4 stars "Much better than expected! I doubt there exists a more elaborate revenge plot than this movie provides. Josh Brolin is perfect as the cad turned victim, then tough guy, Brolin's big head square jaw make him appear straight out of a graphic novel which I've read the story is based."
