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.
