Law Abiding Citizen

How do you stop a killer who is already behind bars?
Hint: There is no other way! The only way is.....

The movie was good. Be prepared to get shocked for once! I was given the first row seat far to the left. But watching Law Abiding Citizen, I was not a law abiding "blogger". Seeing the theatre is not full house and a lot of empty seats at the back, I dragged my companion to the back and seated on probably the best viewing place - centre seats not too far and not too near (imagine). :D

I think I saw Timothy Tiah and Audrey Ooi with another sweet couple. Hi there! Thanks for the movie treat. :)

I saw something like "what goes around comes around" in this movie. I dont know about you. But I consider a movie is good if it can delivers some surprises like what I expect didnt occur. I expect the next step to be this but it comes out differently and a lot better/highly unexpected. So.....

My Score: 8/10

Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) is an upstanding family man whose wife and daughter are brutally murdered during a home invasion. When the killers are caught, Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx), a hotshot young Philadelphia prosecutor, is assigned to the case. Over his objections, Nick is forced by his boss to offer one of the suspects a light sentence in exchange for testifying against his accomplice.

Fast forward ten years. The man who got away with murder is found dead and Clyde Shelton coolly admits his guilt. Then he issues a warning to Nick: Either fix the flawed justice system that failed his family, or key players in the trial will die.

Soon Shelton follows through on his threats, orchestrating from his jail cell a string of spectacularly diabolical assassinations that can be neither predicted nor prevented. Philadelphia is gripped with fear as Shelton’s high-profile targets are slain one after another and the authorities are powerless to halt his reign of terror. Only Nick can stop the killing, and to do so he must outwit this brilliant sociopath in a harrowing contest of wills in which even the smallest misstep means death. With his own family now in Shelton’s crosshairs, Nick finds himself in a desperate race against time facing a deadly adversary who seems always to be one step ahead.
