MOVIE: LAW ABIDING CITIZEN

After his wife and daughter are murdered in front of him, Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) becomes angered when a plea bargain sets one of the killers free. Ten years later and Clyde begins taking revenge on the justice system and all those involved in the injustice his family’s death. Naturally, a game of cat and mouse ensues as prosecutor Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx), attempts to end Clyde’s brutally violent reign of destruction. Both Foxx and Butler provide fairly solid performances with Butler taking a particular enjoyment in his refreshingly twisted role. If you can manage to leave your brain at the door for the sometimes ridiculous plot, Law Abiding Citizen is a thriller you can enjoy right until the final cliffhanger. (AG)
