The ending was poorly written and time line did not make sense to make the final ending happen. What was done in the end should have been grounds for the "conviction happy" acting DA to be disbarred and thrown in jail for doing what the Law Abiding Citizen did throughout the movie. This is a man that has the knowhow and is an engineer by trade and a local city cop with no protective gear goes and figures out how to disconnect his bomb and move it to another location…Unbelievable!
Well the director tried to show the lead role a person without any clarity in what to do, but it is apparent from the movie, that it is just the case with the director himself. The taking and screenplay, and in fact the story all suffer from the same problems. Fortunately to our rescue, Jamie Foxx comes to our rescue with some fine performance.
This was an act of terrorism on a city and Homeland Defense should have taken over the case from the local police. Since when does a local cop trump the federal government? It was well written in the beginning, and then poorly executed at the end due to lack or research on part of writer or Production Company.
Typical Hollywood movie where action overrides reality.
