A History of Violence (2005)

Written By Awir Aditya on Monday, September 14, 2009 | 9:12 AM

Genre: Drama/Crime

Starring: Viggo Mortensen, Maria Bello, Ed Harris

Tom Stall (Mortensen) is leading a happy life with a well-settled diner in a small American town. He has no reasons to complain and is loving the way things are going until an incident at his diner brought him into the media spotlight. After his new found fame, Carl Fogarty (Harris) decides to pay him a visit. Fogarty knew Tom as Joey Cusack, an ex-mafia henchman and starts inviting him back to his old life at Philadelphia. Tom is content with the life he has and doesn't want the secret of his past get to his family. He tries avoiding it by lying to his wife Edie (Bello) and his kids, but realises he cant hide the truth for very long. The movie is plain boring and seems to pointlessly wander around with no real objective. It makes you wonder why you actually even bothered with it. I expected some sort of twist in the end which would change his life forever but was sorely disappointed.

Thumbs up: Viggo Mortensen
Thumbs down: Bland and boring

Rating: 4.9/10
