Clyde Shelton's family is brutally murdered. The ones responsible are caught. However, because of improper procedure, the D.A., Nick Rice only has circumstantial evidence. So he decides to get one of them to testify against the other. When Shelton learns of this, he is not happy. Ten years later, the one who was convicted is being executed but something goes wrong; his execution goes awry and he suffers. They learn that someone tampered with the machine. And the other one is found dead, killed in a gruesome manner. Rice suspects Shelton, so he has him picked up. At first, Shelton agrees to a plea agreement with Rice but changes his mind. It appears that Shelton is not done, it appears he blames the whole system and is declaring war on it going after everyone involved with his family's case. So Rice has to stop him but Shelton is way ahead of him.Written by
Gerard Butler's character uses the line "It's not what you know, it's what you can prove in court". This is the same line Denzel Washington uses in Training Day minus the "in court". See more »

I put him away.

Three years? Is that the going rate for murder these days?
It was extenuating circumstances.
The only "extenuating" circumstance should be is that he didn't do it.
But still, three years at "gladiator academy" like Marion Penitentiary, you expect him to come back a model citizen?
If you scholars didn't contaminate the crime scene I could've kept him up locked up longer

Two versions of the film exist: theatrical and unrated. The theatrical version is 109 minutes long while the unrated cut released on Blu-ray is 118 minutes long, adding several violent moments that were removed from the theatrical cut to avoid an NC-17 rating. It also features alternate shots and some extra footage. See more »
This is a movie that's extremely fun to watch in the theaters because you get to hear and see everyone's reaction to each of his killings. The best one had people actually saying loudly "wow" and "oh my god!".
What drew me to the movie was the fact that the hero wasn't going around killing people with his bare hands or face to face. He was doing it with his mind, with careful planning, and deft precision. That was something refreshing to see. I can totally relate to his feelings of anger over the flaws in the justice system and his desire to take matters into his own hands - to make things right.
The ending was disappointing but the rest of the film was not and I liked it overall.
