It has been a while since I have bought “Payback” on DVD. It has also been few times that I have watched it. I watched it both before and after I bought it. But I was always lacking the right terms to describe the feeling. And I think finally I have got it.
This movie is so transparent and predictable from beginning to end that it is unbelievable. Before even the credits start rolling and movie title displayed you already know what it is about and how it will go and how it will end. And still you… or sorry, I watch it and enjoy it a lot. And then I figure out that it is so much like Tarantino’s Kill Bill…
This film is not about what is happening and to who, but about how it is shown. It has all the style you could ask for and some more. If you enjoyed Kill Bill’s duo and you haven’t seen this one, then go out and grab the DVD. It’s superb.
For the pedants: 9.5 out of 10. :)
