Law Abiding Citizen | 2009 | Jamie Foxx, Gerard Butler

A brutal, gory revenge thriller starring Gerard Butler and directed by F Gary Gray (The Negotiator, The Italian Job). Could anything be worse than seeing your wife and child brutally killed in front of you? Well, probably not, but seeing one of their killers walk free after striking a bargain with the prosecuting lawer wouldn’t make things any easier.
And so it is for Clyde Shelton (Butler). But the experience doesn’t destroy him; instead it eats away at him for a decade, at which point he snaps and takes sadistic revenge on the freed murderer. And then, even after he himself has been jailed, he embarks on a deadly campaign against everyone else connected with the case – including the police and legal representatives.
