What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Jamie Fox looks bored and Gerhard Butler doesn't fare better
Paul Boekkooi Dit is geweld wat as vermaak opgedis word
Christy Lemire Gerhard Butler blows up his career
Sara Schieron Littered with dull action sequences and needless operatics, this melodrama about Justice and the way hubris destroys it can only offer machismo to intrigue its audience.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Law Abiding Citizen is one of those movies you like more at the time than in retrospect.
Peter Travers An exercise in illogic and Death Wish cribbing that lets a bunch of good actors collect big paychecks for playing way less than their A game.
C. Fuchs Somewhat entertaining for a bit but ultimately falling apart as it unfolds, Law Abiding Citizen proves that human plans involving revenge -- be they real or just fictional -- usually don't play out in a way that satisfies everyone
Tomatometer Unnecessarily violent and unflinchingly absurd, Law Abiding Citizen is plagued by subpar acting and a story that defies reason.
