Action Drama - This is a violent action drama aimed at an adult audience. Fans of

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 37 moviegoers:
TEENS:The lone female rated "Dead Man Down" as a "Good" (average) movie.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:One male enjoyed this movie very much and two rated it "Good," which is an OK review, but not great. The female reviews are exactly the same as the males.
ADULTS:VERY MIXED REVIEWS! The male and female reviews are very similar. It appears that a few loved it and a few hated it. The majority rated "Dead Man Down" in the above average to average range. With such a large percentage rating it in the low to very low range, this isn't a movie I would recommend. As a dollar Redbox rental it would be worth a look.
Victor (Colin Farrell), a rising gangland player, has infiltrated the crime empire run by ruthless kingpin Alphonse ( Terrence Howard), with the single purpose of making Alphonse pay for destroying his once happy life. As he meticulously orchestrates his vengeance from his high-rise home, Victor watches and is watched by Beatrice (Noomi Rapace), a mysterious young woman who lives in the apartment across from his.
On the surface a fragile woman-child, Beatrice seethes with a rage of her own. When she uncovers Victor's dark secrets, she threatens to expose him unless he helps her carry out her own campaign of retribution. Each fixated on avenging the past, they devise a violent and cathartic plan that could change their worlds forever.
