"...[an] entertaining festival of bullets and bad-asses...soaked with the usual Gibson charm... Marcus Sakey, TNT's Rough Cut
"Payback is a thriller... Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"...genuinely clever twists...a grittily compelling performance from Gibson. Wade Major, Box Office Magazine

Editor's NoteMel Gibson is Porter, a ruthless criminal, who is gunned down by his wife and friend after they rob an Asian gang. When Porter survives the attack, he makes it his mission to exact revenge on his friend, who has used the robbery money to buy his way into a powerful syndicate. Added to the mix are crooked police officers, members of the syndicate, and the Asian gang, who are out for a bit of revenge themselves. Based on the series of novels by Donald E. Westlake, which were translated to the screen previously in John Boorman's POINT BLANK (1967).
