    Disappointed. Based on the reviews I had high expectations, but I was seriously let down. Extremely slow.

    I didn't like it to be honest. It didnt seem to flow properly and at times was dreadfully slow. The story was just so odd and just didnt seem to be logical. I ending was very strange. I left and thought...was that it?

    I thought this movie was completely lame. It started slow and after the first "fight" scene, I expected it to get better, but it didn't. A couple more very short fight scenes, and a weird ending that makes you wonder... Definately dissappointed.

    The movie is called "A History of Violence", not THE.

    The difference changes the meaning.

    Yes, i'm being a nazi about this. Don't care.

    It was alright I watched it last night. I can't be a good judge though because I could of swore I saw this like a while ago and remember the main plotline and everything about the resturant fight scene, when they show up to his house, and when the sherrif came to the house saying things don't fit together. Flame away but was this leaked several months ago or perhaps a remake?

    that movie fucking sucked.

    I was like wtf am I watching.

    Silent scene in the end was one of the worst things that hit big screen since the ending of Vanilla Sky.

    The ending was fucking stupid.

    It was pointless to spend the first 3/4 of the movie thinking "The killer from the first part of the movie is actually Joey!"

    Why the hell did they have to make him look like Viggo Mortensen.
