Law Abiding Citizen (2009)

F. Gary Gray directs Gerard Butler, Jamie Foxx and Leslie Bibb in this thriller where a widowed home invasion victim plans an elaborate plot to execute everyone involved in his trangressors’ exoneration.

Two very difficult to like stars play characters with no redeeming features. The intention is for the audience to marvel at evil genius Butler’s diabolically intricate scheme but still want Foxx’s shitheel lawyer to survive it. Imagine watching The Joker or John Doe from Se7en be the hero… and that to somehow result in a rottenly glossy timewaster.
