A History of Violence

DVD review from Nick at Nite

A History of Violence

Good movie. I won’t give away any of the plot because I don’t want to ruin it. It is a somewhat methodical movie with moments of high energy. It is very well-acted. Viggo Mortensen (Appaloosa) is very good. The actress that plays his wife is even better (Maria Bello, The Company Men). It is a violent movie. I would not let a child anywhere near this one. If you rent the DVD make sure you watch the extras. The description of the differences between the US and international release is very interesting. The making of featurettes are worth a watch. Short and to the point, they add to the experience. I give it a “B.”
