Critically Blasted Law Abiding Citizen Tops Dvd Charts
Law Abiding Citizen , starring Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler, debuted in first place on the DVD sales and rental charts last week. When it debuted in theaters last summer, the film received a tongue lashing from almost every major critic. In Rolling Stone , Peter Travers wrote "Many of you won't see any reason to bitch about a savage revenge drama that keeps the bodies piling up. As a DVD rental to watch while scarfing pizza and beer, there's not much to complain about either. But Law Abiding Citizen is out there charging top dollar at the multiplex. And for what? An exercise in illogic and Death Wish cribbing that lets a bunch of good actors collect big paychecks for playing way less than their A game." Nevertheless, the movie went on to earn $78 million at the domestic box office.
