Revenge flick recommendations
So we were chatting at work today about Django Unchained and Taken 2 and my buddy said he never saw Taken.
I described as "Liam Neesons daughter gets abducted so he goes and ****ing murders half of Europe to get her back".
Then I described the preview of Django Unchained as "The Jew Hunter is a bounty hunter and he takes Jamie Foxx to rescue his wife and they murder half the Wild West".
I want to see Taken 2 and Django Unchained so badly I can taste it.
Almost as badly as I want to see "Magneto : Nazi Hunter".
So... while I wait for these two flicks to come out.... please recommend me some revenge movies where someone is wronged in the first act and then goes and murders a bunch of people in revenge.
Preferably with at least a hint of humor in it.
Films I've already seen that fit this criteria
Payback (Mel Gibson)
HELP ME LGK! Especially you jerseydevil and adgy*!
*No asian films.

A few ones fit that story line.
Start with Charles Bronson in Death Wish
Last House on the Left
The original Get Carter (1971) with Michael Caine

It ain't exactly a masterpiece, but The Punisher?

I've seen the Thomas Jane version and I'm fascinated by it's awfulness...... but I guess I should have added that the movies should be considered at least "decent".

One that's off the radar...Death Sentence w/Kevin Bacon, John Goodman, and the cat from Tron:Legacy. The Skin I live in, for the single most ****ed up revenge ever...let's see...The Horseman which is Death Wish w/consequences. For old school, Class of '84...you will be cheering when the unrighteous get their comeuppance. Those are the first ones that come to mind. I will do some thinking on it and give you more.

Probably just Class of '84. The others are more genre-bending stuff with the costs of vengeance vs the satisfaction slants. So you are looking for FEEL GOOD revenge flicks only. A little harder to slot but I will reset my search parameters and get back to you.

Somewhat of a revenge film, more of a crime film directed by a Latin American Jew showing just how passionate crime takes over life.
Deep Crimson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I think this film has characters showing just how far they can show their resentment and commit crimes and try ro get away with it.
Weird movie, but I like it.
Speaking from personal experience, I want to see a film about angry Russian Jews seeking revenge, but those films might have to wait.

My favorite revenge movie: The Crow, which happens to have a ton of great lines.
