Best Served Cold: Favorite Revenge Films

Quote:
“Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.” – Confucius

I once heard someone say that vengeance and opposable thumbs are what separate us from the animals. Revenge is an emotion everyone can relate to and understand because we’ve all felt it. The need to correct a perceived wrong against our person is, after all, the basis of our justice system. It is those tales that are set outside the legal system that have intrigued us the most. Perhaps we don’t like to admit it, but when our heroes seek and carry out their revenge, we love to cheer them on. Revenge films offer us a safe place to live out one of our basic human desires – to get even, the cost be damned. Here are some of notable revenge films that should satisfy your “eye for an eye” appetite.


One of my favorites was the Count of Monte Cristo.

Love Payback - both the theatrical (for the soundtrack) and the Helgaland "Straight Up" Edition. Also love the Limey.
