Dead Man Down
Tagline: Revenge is coming.
Niels Arden Oplev, who directed the original Swedish-language The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, reunites with his leading lady, Noomi Rapace, in his U.S. debut Dead Man Down.
Rapace plays Beatrice, who is drawn toward a stranger named Victor (Colin Farrell). He’s a Hungarian immigrant hoping for a better opportunity in the land known for them. But instead, everything that was good in his life is taken from him, as these two characters explore their mutual desire for revenge. Terrence Howard and Dominic Cooper help round out a promising cast. At this time of writing, there isn’t much in the way of reviews to go on, but Enstars gives it a solid B+, pointing out that “the real star of the film is Rapace for the many faces her character has.”

NewsFeed’s Flicks Pick: It’s doesn’t seem to compare to last week’s releases but, if pushed, we’ll plump for Dead Man Down.
