Dead Man Down (2013)

Niels Arden Oplev directs Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace and Dominic Cooper in this revenge thriller where a man with a dark secret infiltrates an organised crime gang and a scarred woman wanting revenge blackmails him into taking on her own crusade for justice.

The first 30 minutes of this are intentionally but needlessly confusing. Convoluted storytelling resolved – the final hour has some good set pieces and a sad little almost romance that feeds into the leads overqualified talents.
