    Law Abiding Citizen is a crime thriller film. A brilliant man orchestrates a series of high-profile murders that grip the city of Philadelphia - all from inside his jail cell. The prosecutor assigned to his case realizes he is the only one who can end the reign of terror.

    The plot focuses on a man who, ten years after his wife and daughter are brutally murdered, returns to extract justice from the assistant district attorney who prosecuted the case against their killers.

    His vengeance threatens not only the man who allowed mercy to supersede justice, but also the system and the city that made it so.

      Report
      A cat-and-mouse game between a cop and a criminal is the formula that is bound to keep one on the edge of his seat. Most of the crime based thrillers use this modus operandi to keep their viewers engaged and Law Abiding Citizen follows suit. Thus, it too manages to grip you throughout but falls short of excelling in its genre owing to a morally ambiguous script. Clyde Shelton (Butler) is a family man whose life revolves around his wife and daughter. His world comes crashing down when one unfortunate night; burglars barge into his house and slaughter his family. Clyde seeks justice and Philadelphia’s deputy prosecutor, Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx) assures him that but ends up doing plea-bargaining thus securing a death sentence for one of the thugs and a light sentence for the other. Clyde feels the punishment is not enough and thus feels betrayed not just by Nick but by the entire justice system. After nurturing deceit for ten years, Clyde considers it to be his duty to take law into his hands and teach every person involved in his case the true meaning of justice. He begins his mission by brutally killing his family’s murderer and then plotting the death of those on his hit list. Can Nick stop Clyde? F Gary Gray succeeds to build up a constant tension in his revenge thriller but fails to establish his characters good enough to evoke sympathy or hatred. Clyde’s backstory is revealed in the end but by then its too late. From a caring father to a justice seeking, mass-murde
