This one is every bit the equal of the first movie and I think quite possibly a little better. The setting of Fort Mac was itself so unique it added to the movie. The boys have created another piece of Canadiana that complements the first movie and also stands alone. Fans will not be let down.

Matthew S (jp) wrote: It is to Christian Petzold's credit that over the course of his career he has so lovingly re-worked some American movies into films that manage to retain themes but modulate them into something altogether unique from the sources of origin. This is clever new take on "The Postman Always Rings Twice." I do not know for sure, but I would suspect Petzold is reworking the 1981 film remake than the original 1940's Film Noir or the infamous novel. The key is that it doesn't really matter. A Hollywood idea has been re-booted to serve as societal commentary regarding modern Germany. Everything from trying to regain footing after serving in a pointless war to attempting to lead a rewarding life without crime to the racism regarding immigrants and immigration -- all support the tawdry plot. Unlike Hollywood of the 1940's or 1980's -- this film is not consumed with eroticism. You may not notice it until after you step away, but this is actually an adult study of loneliness, isolation and the human need for hope. This film is not as stylized as one might expect, but it is surprisingly realistic and entertaining.

Alexandre R (fr) wrote: Un vtran de la Seconde Guerre voit sa paisible routine menace par un soldat de son ancien rgiment revenu se venger d'un mystrieux incident. Ce type de prmisse aujourd'hui banale peut facilement draper, mais dans "Act of Violence", elle est exploite avec beaucoup de lucidit. On prsente un univers o il est difficile pour le spectateur de prendre parti. Chaque geste, chaque issue pourrait s'avrer lgitime.La force du film rside justement dans son profond ralisme. Personne ne vient magiquement justifier tel ou tel acte, trancher le bon du mauvais. Ce qu'on voit, ce sont des pauvres types abims qui tentent de grer leurs dmons comme ils le peuvent, donc souvent trs mal. Les performances sont vraiment persuasives et la courte dure du film acclre la dgringolade. Un film sombre, pessimiste, mais vrai.
