A History of Violence

A History of Violence

A History of Violence was a movie I didn’t go for intentionally. It happened because the show of another movie was cancelled.

While I did here good reviews of this movie, it’s cast and that it was nominated for many and won a few did reassure me that I wouldn’t be disappointed.

I will confess, I wasn’t.

Tom Stall (Viggo Mortensen) had the perfect life… until he became a hero.

When two criminals show up at his diner and Tom is able to thwart them, he suddenly becomes famous. But with the fame, comes a set of mysterious people following his every move and insisting on him to be someone else.
Is it a case of mistaken identity or does Tom have a secret past?

The movie lived up to its name. It was violent! The first half built up an amazing story, which kept me up in my seat, leaning forward to take in every minute detail of the movie.

The interesting story-line creeped into the second half as well. However, it began to dwindle towards the end. The end was a let down. It wasn’t off track, but it could have been a lot better.

I don’t want to be a spoiler, because this is a movie worth catching once, if you can overlook the blood and gore in it.

My rating: 7/10
