Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
One of those movies you like more at the time than in retrospect.
Philadelphia Inquirer - Steven Rea
That the film, directed in swift strokes by F. Gary Gray from a screenplay credited to Kurt Wimmer, doesn't really work - unrelentingly grim, unintentionally funny - is almost beside the point. It's a wild concept.
Miami Herald - Rene Rodriguez
The payback in Law Abiding Citizen doesn't have a cathartic kick, because the revenge is so extreme it's horrifying.
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Clyde is meant to be nuts, but too often it's Law Abiding Citizen that checks rationality at the door.
Austin Chronicle - Marc Savlov
Law Abiding Citizen, ultimately and inappropriately, tips the scales in favor of the Man over mankind. Somebody call Charles Bronson.

Law Abiding Citizen (2009)

A frustrated man decides to take justice into his own hands after a plea bargain sets one of his family's killers free. He targets not only the killer but also the district attorney and others involved in the deal.
