      TRUSTWORTHY

      all reviews
      There are so many ways this movie could be reviewed. The best way, would be to really pin point everything.

      When you’re landed with a great movie to critic it can be difficult but with enough thought and effort put into it negative aspects can in fact be found, even if they are over shadowed with astonishment.

      Gerald Butler plays Clyde Shelton a brilliant inventor who wants the avenge the death of his family.

      When the law doesn’t go the way he wishes he has to take matter into his own hands, taking 10 years of planning to do this.

      Naturally to have the mindset and


      aptitude to plan and preform such deranged actions one would have to be extremely ill-minded.

      But, with the nerves and strong willingness nothing is impossible.

      At first, he seems sick and twisted, but as the movie progresses you being to see through the layers of grossness and understand what he feels and what he copes with everyday.

      He wakes up every single day without his wife next to him and with no little girl to kiss before she goes to school and him to work and it makes your heart bleed for him.

      Clyde Shelton, in some ways, becomes the Michael Scofield of deranged events,


      • and even though he is detestable some logic to his behaviour can be found.

        Do I believe that everyone should do as he did when placed in circumstances like that? Hell no! But do I believe that sometimes it takes someone to do the unthinkable as an attempt to stand up against something you believe to be wrong, like is his case having favours done for murderers.

        His logic may sound odd, and the same as mine but he gets his point across and I believe that this movie may also delivers a message to the real government, police departments, FBI, and the list continues because

        with an example made into a movie it will give the understanding needed to change their way of thinking before the real deal were to occur.

        Anyway, to top it off, I think that his point was, in the end, understood, and if it wasn’t by everyone at least those who did make sense of it then can give explanations to those who didn’t.

        A rating, for a movie with such actions, disturbing, and heart wrenching events it deserves nothing lower than eight stars out of 10, and of course the recommendation from me to any reader to in fact see in theatres and/or buy when it comes out on DVD or Blu-ray.
