Payback

Directed by Brian Helgeland
Starring Gregg Henry, Maria Bello, Mel Gibson

Paramount Home Video | August 28, 2006 | DVD

Payback is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
You never screw over a tough guy; you never try to ruin the life of a guy who does it for a living. That's what some guys did to Porter (Mel Gibson) in this excellent action film. Payback shows just how sweet and deadly revenge is in the crime underworld. A collection of villains played by Kris Kristofferson, William Devane and James Coburn make this film that much better. Coburn starred in the 1967 movie Point Blank, a film based on the same book, The Hunter, as this Gibson film.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Revenge Flick Before I start the review I want to say, I have seen both the directors cut and theatrical version of this movie, and they are two very different films. This reviews is for the theatrical cut. The movie is awesome. The way they start it. It gets you wondering whats going on and makes you keep watching. You want to know what happens. Once you find out what happens, you want to know how it ends. Mel Gibson made this role his own. It was a great performance. He is a real actor not just an action actor. With this and Ransom, he has really changed the fave of the action genre, to more complicated stuff. Awesome movie, which I would highly recommend.
