The Call - Movie Review

Dead Man Down - Movie Review

Dead Man Down - Movie ReviewMarking the American film debut of Niels Arden Oplev, the master auteur behind the original The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Dead Man Down doesn’t pack quite the same guttural punch as the film that unleashed Lisbeth Salander’s angsty, tattooed spunk onto the ...
