Aro Recommended Payback


USA 1998, 98 minutes
Dir. Brian Helgeland
Rating: [R18]
Genres: Action/Adventure / Gangsters


Aroview: Mel Gibson gets to behave badly as an indestructible armed robber who gets carried away on a sadistic get-even mission against a crime syndicate that fleeced his rightfully stolen money.

Sparked with comic ironies and devilish reversals, he ploughs through a comic book world of bent cops, weasly racketeers and deadly mobsters. Adds a cool brutality and rugged retro style to the same source material (Donald E. Westlake's novel, 'The Hunter') that inspired POINT BLANK (1967).
