O que se diz lá fora sobre LAW ABIDING CITIZEN, de F. Gary Gray:
«The explanation of Clyde's methods is preposterous, but it comes late enough that F. Gary Gray, the director, is first able to generate considerable suspense and a sense of dread.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«It's about the cat-and-mouse game between two very smart guys, and it's perfectly happy to be as dumb as it wants.»
A.O. Scott, New York Times.
«It winds up feeling overwritten yet underexplained, foregoing plausible revelations in favor of gusty debate about the ethical challenges of practicing and upholding the law.»
Justin Chang, Variety.
«An exercise in illogic and Death Wish cribbing that lets a bunch of good actors collect big paychecks for playing way less than their A game.»
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
«What I mostly noticed is how quickly I've grown tired of Butler's mush-mouthed bravura, and also how much I hope that Foxx, who looks bored, holds his slumming down to this one film.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
