Revenge can be a powerful motivator — just ask Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace in the trailer for Dead Man Down. The two play Victor and Beatrice, who have both been crossed by gangster/all-around bad guy Alphonse Hoyt (Terrence Howard), and are now teaming up for justice. It's not a totally compliant union; Beatrice has pictures of Victor murdering a man and is using them to blackmail Victor into taking down Alphonse. Dominic Cooper also stars as Victor's partner.
I love a good crime thriller, but I'm on the fence as to whether this is going to be a solid smash-em-up flick or another generic action movie. What makes the trailer pop for me is Pink Floyd's powerful "Shine On You Crazy Diamond," but I don't know if this story is involving enough for a full-length movie. Dead Man Down opens March 8, and you can watch the trailer when you read more.
