Mel Gibson portrays hard-boiled Porter in Payback, a fast, frequently funny and ecstatically twisted blend of action and noir atmosphere co-written and directed by Brian Helgeland, Academy Award winner for L.A. Confidential, based on the 'Point Blank' novel by Richard Stark.

Porter makes his living outside the law. So when his partners in a heist rip off his $70,000 share and leave him for dead, there's only one way for Porter to settle things: his way. And that sends him on a vendetta that will have a lot of lowlifes gaping at the talking end of Porters fat revolver. Crooked cops, street gangs, spineless flyspecks, crime bosses, anyone and everyone standing between Porter and his 70 grand are going to know he's back, with a vengeance.

Ignore the more audience friendly Theatrical Version & cut straight to the chase with the superior Director`s Cut.Here you see Porter`s exsistence as a moral vacuum,intent only on gaining revenge on ex "business " partner Val,who gunned him down,leaving him for dead & stealing his $70,000.Porter will kill anything with a pulse in his obsessive,corpse strewn journey to "Payback".Gangland bosses,corrupt cops & even his junkie ex-wife,all feel the rough edge of Porter`s wrath.Like a relentless human juggernaught of death,he cuts his way through a mounting pile of dead bodies to the scumbag Val & his stolen $70,000-not a penny more,not a penny less.This hard, fast & mean movie is given a superb, sharp,gritty picture in keeping with it`s moody attitude. While the sleazy,jazz influenced soundtrack is more subdued ,than an in your face speaker workout. Payback:The Director`s Cut is THE definitive crime thriller of recent years. It`s nasty, vicious, violent & boasts a "hero" entirely without scruples or a normal moral compass. Porter lives by his own warped rules & code & God help anyone who crosses him. Highly recommended.

Not so long ago Mel Gibson was a very bright star in Hollywood, and in this movie he show cases his former glory effortlessly. A wonderfully fun action thriller with great characters, lots of cool charm and awesome action scenes by the bucket load. Far better than the 4th Leathal Weapon flick that was released just before it. This Blu Ray edition is superb as it brings you both versions of the movie, of which are almost completely different flicks, and some really interesting and indepth documentaries. I think this is a must have Blu ray.

 Great opportunity to see both versions

Being a big fan of the Parker novels (of which this is based on the first one- The Hunter), I was a little disappointed when I first saw the film. That said, it's still enjoyable. I prefer the Director's Cut, as it's much, much darker, avoids that cliched voiceover and is more in line with the Parker novels.
As for the quality of the BD, it's grainy but it's meant to look like that and it suits the mood.

 very nice movie

'yes, the transfer to this format isn't the best, however the film itself is a good watch.
it tells the tale of 'porter' ( mel gibson ) who is basically a 'thug' and 'thief' ,
during a 'heist' his partners in crime betray him and leave him for dead, however 'porter' 'lives' and he want's his share of the robbery's cash, and of course revenge for the betrayel.
to get his share he has to work his way toward the 'top dog' in the mafia' style organisation his partner had paid the money to.
it makes for a gritty and ernjoyable movie, if you haven't seen it before it's worth a watch on which ever format you choose.
