Updated June 8, 2017 94 votes 17 voters 5.1k views8 items

"Dead Man Down" movie quotes follow the action in the crime thriller that follows two people on separate paths for revenge. The action film was written by J.H. Wyman and directed by Niels Arden Oplev, who previously directed the Swedish version of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." "Dead Man Down" released into theaters on March 8, 2013.

In "Dead Man Down," Colin Farrell portrays Victor, a hitman who previously worked for Alphonse Hoyt (Terrence Howard). This all changed when Alphonse, in part, was responsible for the murders of Victor's wife and daughter. On the path of trying to put himself back together after the loss and avenge their deaths, Victor kills a man in his apartment.

Neighbor Beatrice (Noomi Rapace) witnesses the killing. She soon seduces Victor but has al ulterior motive. She too was hurt by someone very bad and, knowing that Victor certainly has the skills to kill others, blackmails him into killing the man responsible for her pain. This leads Victor on an exciting journey for vengeance, one that Alphonse is not going to let him get away with easily.

In case there are not enough high-powered action movies like "Dead Man Down" in theaters, this adds another to the lineup which also features movies like "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," "Side Effects," "Identity Thief," "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," "Stand Up Guys," "Warm Bodies," "Bullet to the Head," "Movie 43," "Django Unchained," "Killing Them Softly," "Hitchcock," "Skyfall," "Lincoln," "Flight," "Playing for Keeps," and "Silver Linings Playbook."

    Beatrice: "You don't have to play these games, Victor. I know why you really came tonight. You're just being careful. You want to find out if the girl who's been watching you saw what you did. I saw you kill this man. I saw you strangle him. I saw you take him away. Now you're trying to clean up a mess that should not be cleaned up. But I think your secret will be safe with me. This is the man who did this to me. I want you to kill him, as you did with the man in your apartment."
    Victor: "I'm not a man…"
    Beatrice: "No! If you don't do it I'll call the police and tell them what I saw."

    Beatrice has put Victor into a tight spot. She knows of the man he killed and wants to obtain his services or she'll blow the whistle. That leaves Victor little choice but to agree to her demands.
