    Default 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

    Taken
    Inglorious Basterds
    Payback (Mel Gibson)
    Kill Bill


    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

    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.

    This is gonna sound dumb but...

    are those "feel good" revenge flicks? Cus that's what I'm really looking for. Maybe the dragon I'm chasing is specific to me but I'm looking for that magic feeling of glee when your protagonist(s) are murdering swaths of humanfodder to a nifty soundtrack and you can be sure a quip or a "say goodbye to your nazi balls" is coming soon.

    Why won't they make Magneto : Nazi Hunter?

    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.
