"Law Abiding Citizen" is a crazy, macabre, infringing movie, starring Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx. The Celluloid Film Review never gets films like this one. The unnecessary gore and gratuitous violence that could not have a positive impact on moviegoers' psyche, is stupid and superfluous. The film is also grizzly, when it is not even classified as a horror film.

The movie is about a man who is attacked in his home, his wife brutally murdered and his preteen daughter sexually assaulted and killed in his presence, enraging him so, he hunts down the perpetrators, viciously killing them one by one. He also murderously targets law enforcement and court officials that failed him.

This was not a pleasant movie. It was very sick and twisted. As such, it gets no love from the Celluloid Film Review and is not recommended.
