'Dead Man Down'
(Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Terrence Howard, Dominic Cooper, Isabelle Huppert, et al / R / 118 mins)

Overview: Director Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) makes his eagerly anticipated English-language-feature debut with this action thriller about a tough New York City enforcer and an alluring blackmailer who both put their lives on the line to seek vengeance against one of the city's most powerful crime bosses.

Verdict: This is a crime drama about revenge and it's repercussions. Colin plays a man with revenge on his mind; His wife and daughter are murdered and he wants Terrence [a criminal mob boss] to pay. He becomes friends with Dominic [a low-level crook] to get a job to get close to Terrence, so that he can carry out his plan.

Then he meets Noomi, a neighbor that was in a car accident with a drunk driver [her face was damaged and she wants revenge on the driver]. Noomi sees Colin doing something illegal and blackmails Colin into handling her problem [if he won't do it, she will call the police on him].

One of the producers of the movie is in the WWE [I have not been keeping up with wrestling, but there is a wrestler by the name of Stu Bennett in the movie]. I liked it and would buy it on DVD.
