Review of "Payback," DVD version

Review of
Payback, DVD version

One out of five stars
 This action movie uses the well-worn theme of the killer put away by a cop that is determined to seek revenge. While this is a solid plot device, in this case it is so poorly executed that it is dull to watch. The acting is weak and appears to be bad actors trying desperately to act in a good manner. Their mannerisms are exaggerated, and the camera angles are often poorly chosen. The irate police supervisor role is particularly poorly played, although some of this is due to the structure of the scene and the very predictable dialog.
 The movie is dull, poorly written and poorly played. It is one of the worst action movies that I have ever seen.
