Andrew called this out earlier, praising the directorial excess and the nice cast (Noomi Raapace, Colin Farrell, Isabelle Huppert, Terrence Howard) as one of the hidden gems to look for in this dour spring moviegoing season, but he was only going by the trailer. Now, Mamo!’s Matt Price has seen the film, and video reviews Niels Arden Oplev’s stylish action thriller, Dead Man Down; heaping it with praise in, exactly that, good direction. And as a part of The Substream‘s Watch This Instead (WTI) format he goes on recommends an even more stylish action thriller to accompany it. We’re on the same page today, Mr. Price.
I'm with the consensus- the script isn't so great but the direction and action are very good. I though Farrell was more than good. He has great intensity here.
Kurt - I don't think he's eating cookies with fork and knife. She gave him a second container of food. Pretty sure it was fish or chicken.
