The idea of vigilante revenge is a powerful basis.
This movie shows not only the possibilities of revenge but the reluctance and hesitation to engage in the same.
It was well acted and mostly believable but the plot did tend to get muddied a bit at certain points. Gives an interesting view of British home life, office life, and countryside as well to those interested in British culture.
Overall, it caught my interest and kept me watching until the rather predictable ending. But predictable ending aside it shouldn't matter to most movie watchers as the action keeps everything moving and keeps it interesting to the end.
