Just saw “Law Abiding Citizen”, loved it.

Something I love in a movie is the intelligent anti-hero. Somebody who doesn’t take shit from anyone. Someone who looks at a problem and decides it needs to be fixed, and then goes about doing it in the most unusual way possible. The usage of an anti-hero to cut through red tape transforms the plot in a way that puts all the bets off. You’ve got no idea what’s going to happen next, and if the writer is good, the results are epic.

If you haven’t seen this movie, go see it. You won’t be disappointed.

*Spoiler* (Highlight to read) I love the part where the corrupt judge signs off Clyde’s civil rights, and then is promptly blown away by her cell phone. That took me completely by surprise.
