Watch Out...Two Different Movies

I have seen the released version of payback more then a few times and like it quite a bit. I just watched the Directors' Cut and found myself watching a totally different film. The producers must have done a pre- screening and found out that the director/screenwriter is an idiot and does not know how to direct. Brian Helgeland wrote this screenplay as well as the great LA Confidential but should never be allowed to direct as he has not idea how to do that. Payback the Director's Cut tried very hard to be a 40's Sam Spade kind of film noir but quickly became a series of unrelated scenes with throw away one liners. Sally Kellerman's voice over work is as wooden as her acting and for this reason she does not show up in the better version and is replaced by the fine actor Kris Kristofferson. The second half on Payback has been re-shot completely and the story changed. They still gave Helgeland credit for Directing as this was a gift to him as his original stuff is crap. Whomever re-shot the film and directed did a much better job and then the Editor saved the day by fixing a mess.

I seriously wondered when Kris Kristofferson was going to show up and the net thing I know the credits are rolling. WTF

Standard action revenge movie

This is basically a run of the mill revenge action movie that worked when it first came out. Even today it's a okay flick to just pop in and sit through, mainly because of Mel Gibson's portrayal of a bad guy going after the mob to get his money back. He seemed like the type of guy that has a set of principles that he stands by but isn't someone you want to stab in the back. He is a very vengeful character and to a certain extent I could understand where he was coming from. He isn't necessarily a character I could root for but he is someone that resonated with me to a certain extent. Yeah, there is some cool bits then and there but overall it's a generic revenge action movie that is actually quite forgettable. It would have been very forgettable if it was for Mel Gibson's performance, but than again the guy is really good at playing anti-heroes or bad guys that doesn't go full evil.

nice action flick

Lucy Liu was so f****n sexy in this movie with all that BDSM stuff...all the comic stuff its cool..Mel Gibson was not so unbeatable in this movie as it Bruce Willis for example..or Steven Seagal, Gregg Henry its a mean bad-ass , bottom line ..a good action flick , you must see. not away from the action pattern movie, some brutal stuff and a evil image of the police, corruption ...seen in all the American movies, really the mob control a city in the us? is that so bad? or its just a movie..but i am sure its inspired from the reality..its not a fiction..or a sci-fi. Finally, a good revenge movie starring Mel Gibson.
