  1. Payback has a completely different spirit from "L.A. Confidential'' -- more wild, more silly -- but it has the same attention to the fine points of plot and character.

    Payback has a great screenplay, action and witty humour. Gibson really suits the role of Porter. The movie
    Is gritty and action packed. The
    movie is a fantastic crime thriller. Full Review »

    Payback is a wild action movie with a revenge plot. Mel Gibson is perfect in this movie and it is total fun.
