Top 12 Revenge Movies

August 11, 2014

 

 

Most people are driven by power; plain and simple. How that power is attained is another story. Rape is not about sex; it is physical and personal power over another human being, causing irrefutable pain and trauma to the victim, and a heightened sense of ego to the perp.

 

Violence, in all forms, is common within the movie industry and when considering a storyline that is marketable, the inclusion of an underdog or a vigilante always sells.

 

I want to see a hero who defies the odds and takes revenge on evil. When I am feeling challenged and my back is against the wall, I watch one of my favorite movies where the scores are settled in the end. I especially appreciate a strong, female character who ultimately wins against her oppressors.

 

Therefore, I offer you a list of my favorite revenge movies:

 

12.  Death Wish - 1974 Charles Bronson

 

11.  Double Jeopardy – 1999 Tommy Lee Jones, Ashley Judd

 

10.  Taken – 2008 Liam Neeson

 

  9.  Gladiator – 2000 Russell Crowe

 

  8.  The Count of Monte Cristo – 2002 Jim Caviezel

 

  7.  Colombiana – 2011 Zoe Saldana

 

  6.  Munich – 2005 Eric Bana

 

  5.  The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo – 2011 Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig

 

  4.  The Brave One – 2007 Jodie Foster

 

  3.  Enough – 2002 Jennifer Lopez

 

  2.  Law Abiding Citizen – Gerard Butler, Jamie Fox

 

AND MY  # 1 REVENGE MOVIE IS...............

 

Sleepers – 1996 Brad Pitt, Robert De Niro

 

An honourable mention goes to Bad Ass – 2012 Danny Trejo. This is a light hearted, vigilante movie that is funny and really bad ass!
