Mini movie review: Law Abiding Citizen
One of the women I work with and I discovered a mutual taste for Gerard Butler, and she was kind enough to loan me her copy of Law Abiding Citizen to watch this weekend. That makes it two mediocre, entertaining enough but certainly not good movies that I've watched in a row now - and this one left me with about as much to say about it as Extract did. Maybe less. What I liked: Jamie Foxx's D.A. actually had a character arc; the movie had a solid cast with, in addition to the stars, Colm Meaney, Leslie Bibb, Bruce McGill and Viola Davis; and GB shows his bare butt. Not sure why it was necessary to the storyline that he showed his butt, but I appreciated it nonetheless. Otherwise, Law Abiding Citizen is a run of the mill vigilante action/thriller with not much new to say.
P.S. On the plus side, True Blood S2 DVD arrived - let me pour myself a bourbon and get my recapping gloves on!
