About the Movie
A psychopathic mastermind (Gerard Butler of GAMER, 300), captured for the murder of his wife's killers, threatens to unleash a gruesome killing spree across the city of Philadelphia unless he is released. The prosecuting attorney (Jamie Foxx of THE SOLOIST, THE KINGDOM) is usually a deal maker but this time stands his ground and refuses. As if on cue, innocent people start dying in horrifying ways - just as the prisoner warned. The city falls into chaos, with everyone calling for the attorney's head. Desperate, he comes to the realization that his decisions might be what created this horrifying vigilante, and he is the only one that can stop him.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: As a social statement, Law Abiding Citizen is a flawed attempt at holding the legal system accountable for its shortcomings. As a movie, it's a ridiculous execution of a misguided concept.
Rotten: One of the more repugnant examples of Hollywood's cheap-thrill approach to violence, its voyeuristic brutality is matched only by its innate stupidity.
Rotten: While Law Abiding Citizen is in no sense a successful work of art, a film that offers the illicit thrill of cheering on an all-American terrorist is at least pursuing something more complex than ''moral clarity''.
Rotten: Bloodshed and torture abound in this sadistic thriller with pretensions.
Amazing Action-Suspense film
I don't know what the critics are talking about. Law Abiding Citizen is an amazing film. Gerard Butler is perfect for this. This about a man getting revenge on the justice system, while he is locked up in prision himself. He shocks everyone with his perfect timing on everything and no one knows how he does it. This is definitely a great buy!
