"No More Mr. Nice Guy."


  • Director: Brian Helgeland
  • Genre: Crime, Action, Drama
  • Studio: Icon Productions
  • Duration: 120 Mins

The source material that provided Lee Marvin with an unforgettable role in John Boorman's critically acclaimed Point Blank (Donald E Westlake's The Hunter, written under the pseudonym Richard Stark) is here expertly recycled for the solid directing debut of LA Confidential writer Brian Helgeland. Mel Gibson stars as violent antihero Porter, a professional thief who seeks revenge when his wife and crime partner double-cross him during a hold-up of some Chinese gangsters and leave him for dead. Things get messy when his quest to retrieve his share of the loot puts him in contact with high-ranking crime bosses and bent cops. Helgeland handles the high-octane action with flair, intelligence and lethal doses of sardonic wit to deliver a cool-as-ice thriller with a very dark and violent centre.
