Dead Man Down with Colin Farrell – So good I had to see it twice

Although I love movies, I don’t often make an effort to go see them at the theatre. (A recent exception was Magic Mike…well worth the effort). When I saw the previews for Dead Man Down, I knew I had to see it opening weekend. I met my daughter, Lacey, at a theatre downtown. The movie was amazing. I was enthralled from beginning to end. Just as it ended, my other daughter, Lana, texted me and said she was about to see the movie at a different theatre. I had just enough time to get there, so I did. And I saw the movie again. And was just as enthralled the second time.

Colin Farrell is….well, he’s gorgeous, of course, but he’s also a phenomenal actor. There are a lot of beautiful actors out there, but Colin has that special something. He can play any role and nail it. He pulled off playing evil, unattractive Bobby Pellitt in Horrible Bosses and ‘almost’ hid his extreme sexiness. And he was hilarious. His thick Irish brogue is adorable, yet he is able to disguise it, take on any role with any accent, and make you believe it.


Dead Man Down is about a man and a woman seeking revenge–both for different reasons and with different targets–who cross paths. This film is not your average, run of the mill revenge-action movie. I can’t say much without giving away spoilers, so I’ll just say, go see it, you won’t regret it. I hear it is not doing well at the box office, and that Colin Farrell’s movies are often bombs. I can’t imagine why. A fantastic movie that makes you laugh, cry, and keeps your muscles bunched with tension for two hours…what more could you want? And did I mention, uhm, it stars Colin Farrell???????

  1. I hadn’t heard of it yet. I’ll have to check him – I mean it – out. Kidding. I’d pay good money just to stare at the guy. He is scrumptious, and talented. A double threat. Thanks for steering me toward this film.


    • LOL. Yes, scrumptious is an excellent way to describe him. You are most welcome…my pleasure! If you see it, let me know what you think. Maybe I was blinded by his perfection and the movie wasn’t as good as I thought. 🙂

    Sounds like something I should go see. I hope it goes better than Magic Mike for me. I went with my grown daughter, suddenly developed an extremely high temperature during the movie…I had an infection…and had to go to the emergency room and stay at the hospital overnight. It took awhile to convince my daughter I really was ill and just overheated from the hotties on the movie! I had to go see the movie again later, because I was a bit too delirious the first time to focus. And I wanted to focus! 🙂


    • Hi Goldie…definitely a Must See! Sorry about your mishap with Magic Mike. That’s another movie that I loved so much, I kept going back to the theatre. 🙂 Yeah, definitely want to focus on that movie.
