Law Abiding Citiaen Starring Gerard Butler Movie Trailer (Blog)

August 17, 2009 | Law Abiding Citizen News

I have to admit that I saw this trailer for Law Abiding Citizen the other day on You Tube. I wanted to see it because I had heard that Gerard Butler’s performance was amazing in it. And I have to say that they were right. He looks crazy. But with the premise of the movie who would blame a person like that?

The synopsis is this: Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) is an upstanding family man whose wife and daughter are brutally murdered during a home invasion. When the killers are caught, Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx), a hotshot young Philadelphia prosecutor, is assigned to the case. Over his objections, Nick is forced by his boss to offer one of the suspects a light sentence in exchange for testifying against his accomplice.

Fast forward ten years. The man who got away with murder is found dead and Clyde Shelton coolly admits his guilt. Then he issues a warning to Nick: Either fix the flawed justice system that failed his family, or key players in the trial will die.

Soon Shelton follows through on his threats, orchestrating from his jail cell a string of spectacularly diabolical assassinations that can be neither predicted nor prevented. Philadelphia is gripped with fear as Shelton’s high-profile targets are slain one after another and the authorities are powerless to halt his reign of terror. Only Nick can stop the killing, and to do so he must outwit this brilliant sociopath in a harrowing contest of wills in which even the smallest misstep means death. With his own family now in Shelton’s crosshairs, Nick finds himself in a desperate race against time facing a deadly adversary who seems always to be one step ahead.

It hits theaters on October 16th. I can’t wait to see this one. I want to see how dark Gerard is going to get!
