Law Abiding Citizen

"You have a psychopath in prison but he continues to kill to get his point across." 

This was uttered by the presiding mayor in the film and it definitely left me thinking that Clyde, (Gerard Butler) a devastated father surely had an accomplice to pull it off. However, as the film unrolled its suggested gory machinations done by Clyde who felt betrayed by the justice system that has forgotten the victims, orchestrated everything that resulted a one-man operation. Rice, (Jaime Foxx) a self-serving ADA who was only concerned about his conviction rate begins to understand  when he has his own family to look out for. I never thought my skin crawled again since Silence of the Lambs.

The tenet "show and tell" was employed throughout the movie. Add this movie to learn how  "show not tell" was used. I think it will be very helpful too.
