Someone will pay 4.25$ to watch it and won't be deceived...
Buy it instead of renting it. This movie is like a drug:when you watch it, you cannot stop. It is an intense thriller with an incredibly brilliant performance from Mel Gibson. There are not too much bad guys but we got the time to know them, and that is a good thing. There is lots of blood but no free violence. No big guns, no macho commandos and anything bad. It is simple but well written and well acted so the movie is a must-see! I give it 89%.
