Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Victor (Farrell), a professional killer and the right hand man to an underground crime lord in New York City (Howard), is seduced and blackmailed by Beatrice (Rapace), a crime victim seeking retribution. Their chemistry and intense relationship leads them to execute a violent and cathartic plan for revenge.

Amazon.com

A crime thriller that is both thoughtful and fueled by violent brutality, Dead Man Down often seems like two different movies that pass in the night. It is dark, gritty, and explosive in style and substance, yet it often takes long, languorous breaks for moments of tenderness and human connection between a handful of deeply scarred souls with differing goals but related agendas. The scars are figurative for Victor (Colin Farrell), a stalwart Hungarian immigrant driven toward vengeance after the murder of his wife and daughter by a crime syndicate equally leveraged into drugs and real estate. His real name is Laszlo, and the crime lord Alphonse (Terrence Howard) believes he had been dispatched along with his family. In an elaborate plan, Victor/Laszlo has infiltrated Alphonse's gang as a loyal soldier to get close enough to kill them all. For Beatrice (Noomi Rapace), a lonely woman whose apartment balcony faces Victor's, the scars are literal. She was disfigured in an accident caused by a recidivist drunk driver and wants her own deadly revenge. It's not hard to see where the relationship between Victor and Beatrice is heading once they meet and their individual goals are held up to the moral standards that were irreparably damaged by their tragedies. Beatrice is able to blackmail Victor to do her bidding even as Victor is up to his neck in an extremely complicated game to burn up his own past. And burn many things he does, including people, a bomb-laden pickup truck, and an elegant mansion where the last stand of a chaotic climax unfolds. Along the way there are several fierce gun battles and moments of disturbingly intimate viciousness that lend Dead Man Down a defiant edge in the genre of dark crime dramas. The highlight is a broad-daylight shootout and foot chase on a busy Manhattan street that features swooping camerawork, a progression of breathtaking practical stunt effects, and smart pacing that ends abruptly in calm as the players disappear into plain sight. J.H. Wyman's unusually structured script, with its extended pauses of meaningful quiet and bursts of terrible ferocity, is made better by the skill of Danish director Niels Arden Oplev in his American feature debut. Oplev made the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and he brings out the best in bringing along Noomi Rapace, even though the makeup of her facial damage doesn't really make her any less beautiful. Colin Farrell still has not found his mid-career stride, but his obsession and brooding brow give the tortured Victor a motivation that is clearly felt. The acting is a bigger bonus in some of the supporting roles, notably Dominic Cooper as Victor's friend and fellow gangland soldier. F. Murray Abraham appears as Victor's philosophical father-in-law, and it's terrific to see Armand Assante chomping into the persona of a quietly enraged mob boss. The iconic French actress Isabelle Huppert takes a graceful and scene-stealing turn as Beatrice's loving yet smothering mother. It's all an unusual mix of character and story that makes Dead Man Down stand up with a life all its own. --Ted Fry

DEAD MAN DOWN is a very engrossing and engaging tale of revenge. What starts out as a totally confusing and seemingly unrelated series of events ever so slowly comes together in a thoroughly riveting climax. Director Niels Arden Oplev's tale is methodically paced and ultimately mesmerizing as the story unfolds. Colin Farrell gives one of his best performances in a very underplayed characterization and Noomi Rapace is totally impulsive in her captivating performance opposite Farrell. Together they are amazingly convincing as the viewer never is given a chance to get a good read on these two actors who powerfully and so subtly reveal just bits and pieces of their broken and twisted lives that by happenstance place them on a singular road of salvation for their own humanity. To say too much would give the plot away, but by the end the entire experience gels in a visually cathartic conclusion. I highly recommend this film.

Danish director Niels Arden Oplev brings his talent for relentless uneasiness on the screen in this story by Joel Howard Wyman. The theme is not good guy versus bad guy because every character in the film is a bad guy/girl and once the audience tunes into that then the emphasis is on that elusive human reaction to trauma called revenge.

Victor (Colin Farrell) is a Hungarian immigrant whose wife and daughter were killed and he is out to destroy the Albanian crime gang that caused their death. He 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. Victor's best friend is crime cohort Darcy (Dominic Cooper) whose obsessive curiosity about his friend opens the story for insertion of all manner of bad tings. As he meticulously orchestrates his vengeance from his high-rise home, Victor watches and is watched by Beatrice (Noomi Repace, a mysterious young woman, her face is disfigured from a car accident, who lives with her mother (Isabelle Huppert) in the apartment across from his. On the surface a fragile woman-child, Beatrice seethes with a rage of her own: she sees the death of the drunken driver who caused her facial excoriations and rebuilding attempts. 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.

One of the reasons this film works so well is that incredibly magnetic brooding presence of Colin Farrell, but the other reasons the story pushes along at a breakneck speed is the quality of the rest of the cast.

Wow who knew WWE Studios could actually make a good film. From the trailers I first saw a few months ago the film looked like a really good action thriller yet there was no sign that WWE produced this film and I think that was purposely done by WWE Studios and the distributor studio in FilmDistrict. I mean when you bring up WWE Studios a good film certainly isn't the first thing that comes to mind. The only half way decent film they produced was The Condemned with Steve Austin. It was stupid fun thrill ride, but at best was a two and half to three star film, so I can understand why I didn't see the WWE's name openly attached to Dead Man Down. I think this was the first film WWE actually took seriously putting time and money into the film, and bringing in a good cast and director. Still when I learned that the WWE was a part of Dead Man Down a few days ago my expectations for the film dropped considerably, and I think that was a good thing because I was pleasantly surprised that Dead Man Down is a good film.

The film starts off with Darcy (Dominic Cooper) showing off his newborn child to Victor (Colin Farrell) and telling him he finally realizes that humans weren't meant to be alone, and common thread to this revenge film that tries to deal with the themes of revenge what it does to people and whether getting revenge will get rid of the scars and pain that has been inflicted on us. What Darcy doesn't know is that Victor has infiltrated Darcy's gang run by the ruthless Alphonse Hoyt (Terrence Howard) to get revenge. Things get complicated for Victor when he meets another damaged soul in Beatrice (Noomi Rapace) across from him in another apartment building. The two bond as they are searching for revenge and in doing so slowly begin to live again. The story was written by J. H.

A crime lord and a betrayal. Sounds like pretty standard R-rated stuff, but this cast is a cut above and as a result, it slipped up on my blind side. After a pretty standard shoot-em-up opening scene, to my surprise, I soon had people to root for and very much wanted them to survive to the final curtain.

Danish director Niels Arden Oplev ("The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo") skillfully manipulates us into caring about two damaged people, one physically and one emotionally, as each tries to cope with the aftermath of a personal catastrophe.

These folks made it happen:
* Colin Farrell ("Seven Psychopaths") is an immigrant, a bright Hungarian engineer who is carrying emotional scars that demand payback. Of course, it's always interesting to watch a smart person tackle a tough problem and we often forget that Mr. Farrell is a wonderful actor.
* Noomi Rapace ("Prometheus") is a (formerly) lovely beautician whose life changed instantly when she was hit by a drunken driver. Rapace is one of those amazing international stars who simply asks where her character is from and takes it from there.
* Terrence Howard ("The Ledge") plays icy threats very, very well. This kingpin is being harried by some anonymous gangster and he wants it to stop!
* Dominic Cooper ("My Week With Marilyn") is one of the violent gang who owes fealty to his leader, but also has a wife and child at home. London-born Mr. C. plays American so often, he may lose his natural accent.

Make no mistake, there is a lot of gunfire, profanity and cruelty, but the audience was deeply invested in the outcome. In fact, at the conclusion there was a spatter of applause, which is rare in a screening. Captions will be a welcome addition when this is on DVD (from Amazon...smile...)
