Revenge Never Tasted So Sweet
16 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watch this if...you were a fan of Taken, but not one to shy away from violence, gore, and brutality. A really fun and entertaining movie from start to finish, but not for everyone. I highly recommend for a good revenge film.

Acting/Casting: 7.5* - Outstanding acting from everyone involved. Peter Marshall does an amazing job in the lead role and the pain inflicted on the villains is palpable.

Directing/Cinematography/Technical: 8* - The directing and cinematography is great. The fight scenes are outstanding and believable, but a few seem a bit far fetched. The movie is gruesome and brutal and the audience can feel it.

Plot/Characters: 7.5* - A typical revenge story that is slightly similar to Taken, but much more graphic, brutal, and violent. Just like Taken, it is easy to get on the father's side and to watch him get revenge on those who wronged his daughter. This is a fairly simple script that had to be acted out well in order to make for a good product, which thankfully happened.

Entertainment Value: 8.5* - Superb experience that manages to be entertaining and gripping from start to finish. I plan to watch it again very soon and to actually purchase it very soon.

My Score: 7.5+8+7.5+8.5 = 31.5/4 = 7.9
