History of ViolenceIf you like your violence slow and introspective, there is a slight chance you will be intrigued by "A History of Violence." If you're looking to kill time with an exciting Hollywood shoot-'em up, you will be very disappointed.
Viggo Mortensen stars as family man, Tom Stall. Unbeknownst to his family, Tom used to be a ruthless killer in Philadelphia named Joey Cusack. Joey has relocated to a small town in Indiana and he's married with two wonderful children. When Joey's past catches up with "Tom," the so-called history of violence is brought to our attention. Seems like a decent idea for a movie. Guess what? It's not.
I'm going to be straight up. I did not like this movie. I thought it was very slow and boring. Many people at my screening were restless and the movie is only 97 minutes long!
