|Title:||Law Abiding Citizen|
|Director:||F. Gary Gray|
|05.04.10||Netflix|| I really really liked this movie until the end because I chose to watch this as an origin film for a Batman villain. As an actual real-world film it's pretty ridiculous and absurd, but scene in a Dark Knight type of lens, it's perfect. Again, until the end... which is spoilers so stop reading.|
So the ending... I really had a problem that there was no post-credits bumper where he somehow survived the explosion. He could be burned up to a crisp or something or deformed and missing an arm or something like that so he's forced to wear a mask that represents John Q Public or something like that, but he has to live to cause chaos to Batman later in life.
But instead, he dies not because he gets outsmarted - because really it's an arbitrary decision on the part of the writer to have him not see this coming instead of the rest of the film which - but because this is an American film and bad guys still have to die at the end. Bullshit!
Anyway, so yeah... seen in that perspective, i loved it!
