Dead Man Down - DVD Review

Starring Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Terrence Howard, Dominic Cooper, Isabelle Huppert and Armand Assante.  Directed by Niels Oplev.


Niels Oplev, director of the original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, brings some Eurotrash sensibilities to this revenge thriller about a gangster (Colin Farrell) trying to help his boss (Terrence Howard) figure out who wants to kill him.  Meanwhile his neighbor (Noomi Rapace) blackmails him into killing the man who permanently scarred from a hit-and-run.  The pacing isn't exactly smooth, but something about the really dysfunctional love that develops between the two leads make it enjoyable enough for a rental.
