How i saw it. Cam DVD

Opening Weeekend in USA. $13,471,488 2,755 Screens 9-14-07 to 9-16-07

Plot. A woman struggles to recover from a brutal attack by setting out on a mission for revenge.

At the start of the film, it looks like Death Wish You see a loving couple brutalized and with only Jodie Foster surviving. You see her buying a gun to protect herself and then you see her start to protect and to kill those who would do harm. We are introduced to Terrance Howard as a sub plot who soon becomes part of her radio show.

But what soon becomes apparent is that her vigilantism is becoming her therapy by her killing to respond to her trauma. The viewer is left to ask what is the road that she is on. Is it the right path by doing justice or is her descent into madness by murder. If you a fan of "The Batman" comic, I believe that you will like this film. Due to both being similar, in the need for revenge.

i will not spoil the end of the film, but be sure to watch it to make sure you really understand what kind of an ending you saw. If you are looking for an original idea, then this will not be the film for you.One could make a case for this film being a killing porn film. If you are looking for a good film to see, then this will be a film that you should watch one time.

Grade C+
