Last day at Nitehawk is this Thursday – hurry! In Dead Man Down, director Niels Arden Oplev (of the original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo fame) shows us that revenge is never a straightforward endeavor.
Girl stalks boy. Girl sees boy kill someone. Girl meets boy. Boy gets wrapped up in a beautiful revenge story full of anger, passion, and action in this neo-noir thriller. Never one to disappoint when it comes to playing cold-blooded murderers with a heart of gold, Colin Farrell is Victor, the right-hand man to New York crime lord Alphonse Hoyt (Terence Howard) who is also responsible for the deaths of his wife and daughter. Compounding upon that motivation for revenge is Beatrice (Noomi Rapace) who seeks her own vengeance by blackmailing Victor.
