My final exam is getting nearer, which means my design project (nitric acid production plant part I) almost finish. I am just waiting for our design presentation next week. And since this semester I am only taking two courses that have final exam, my days are less hectic and more fun. For example, yesterday my friends and I (including one of my lecturers) went out to watch a midnight movie, Law Abiding Citizen, starring Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx.
I love Jamie Foxx and I want to see more of him, but in this movie, it’s more focusing on Gerard Butler as the bad guy. Well, not really a bad guy (he kills people cruelly though, but nowadays, who doesn’t?), but he’s actually a guy who just wants to highlight the bad side of our justice system.
He tries to raise the fact that in the justice system, not always the good one wins. The system will decide which side will win the case based on how they managed to manipulate the system. Every crime need to be supported with concrete evidences and in some cases, the when the evidence is not sufficient or strong enough, the bad guy will walks free.
The movie was built around this matter and with lots of explosion and evil genius plans; it actually developed into an interesting movie. I hate the end though. It definitely deserved a better ending; the evil will prevail and the justice system will be fixed. Nevertheless, the movie is not a total disappointment and I give it 3.5 stars.
Why should you watch it?
- There are lots of explosion, gruesome killings and Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler in it.
- It has prison break scene, high tech bombs and military gadgets.
- Not to forget, this movie was co-produced by Gerard Butler. Not a bad try.
