Did You Know?

Trivia

Director Uwe Boll began work on the film in 2010 and did a lot of research into the 2007/08 financial crisis. Around this time, he spoke with victims and people affected by the crisis, and also started talking to a professor in the bailout commission in Germany. See more »

Goofs

When the main character assaults the bank, the police tactical unit arrives in a black truck marked "SWAT." As the scene takes place in Manhattan, this is inaccurate. The term "SWAT" is not used by the NYPD. Their trucks are white and blue, and are marked "Emergency Service." See more »

Quotes

Jim Baxford: [voice-over] I'm still alive and free and I promise I will keep killing. They should all know that I am out there, a soldier of the people... and if the government, the prosecutors and the judges fail on their duty, I will not fail on mine.

An film that fills with so much emotions that its flaws are easily overlooked.
1 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am compelled to write this review because I am completely disgusted by all those biased reviews written by people who let their predisposed opinions about the director or the actor dictate their feeling towards the film. I am not a fan of Uwe Boll but I don't agree with a lot of the nasty stuff people put out there. I know people are entitled to their opinion but I also know that we can become better at what we do.

With all that said, I was genuinely surprised by the amount of emotion put into this film. The acting was superb. Dominic Purcell does a great job playing an average individual, Jim, a loving husband who is desperately trying to survive in a world full of greed. It is hard for anyone not to feel for Jim as injustice and greed gradually consumes his everything and pushes him closer and closer into the world of evil. Erin Karpluk does a great job portraying a loving wife whose unfortunate destiny is worsened by the flaws of capitalism. All others minor characters all did their best to help the audience understand the difference between good and evil. I don't understand why people think Dominic Purcell is a bad actor, I really think he is one of the few action stars who can be tough yet full of emotions at the same time.

While there were no major flaws in acting, the plot does suffer some major setbacks. Since I don't want to spoil anything, let me just say I didn't think any of those was a major distraction to the movie but they were somewhat noticeable. Overall, the story might be a bit too straightforward to some people and the ending twist which may or may not fit everyone's taste, the great acting should keep you entertained throughout.

Quick note, if you are watching it with a kid, please make sure to explain the role of violence and the importance of consequence and blah blah blah. This movie can be too deep for kids.

To conclude, please watch this movie with an open mind. Do not blindly hate it because of Uwe Boll's history as a director and do not love it simply because of it's an bloody revenge towards Wall Street greed.
