Synopsis:
The pay off is excitement when Mel Gibson portrays hard-boiled Porter in 'Payback', a fast, frequently funny and ecstatically twisted blend of action and noir atmosphere co-written and directed by Brian Helgeland, Academy Award winner for 'LA Confidential'. Porter makes his living outside the law. So when his partners in a heist rip off his $70,000 share and leave him for dead, there's only one way for Porter to settle things: his way. And that sends him on a vendetta that will have a lot of lowlifes gaping at the talking end of Porter's fat revolver. Crooked cops. Street gangs. Spineless flyspecks. Crime bosses.
Anyone and everyone standing between Porter and his 70 grand are going to know he's back... with a vengeance.

Anti-hero - Payback review by JD

Spoiler Alert
19/08/2012

Despite his best attempts to portray an unpleasant, unlikeable, bad guy he fails. I am sure Michael Palin would have been the same. They are incapable of playing the bad guy. The plot generally is pretty unbelievable and there is too much of the super hero stuff which is neither awesome nor amusing. Surprisingly average for a Gibson film.
