HISTORY OF VIOLENCE (R)
NEW LINE CINEMA (2005)
Starring: Viggo Mortensen, Maria Bello, Ed Harris, William Hurt, Ashton Holmes & more.
This film follows the life a small town & it's people. It focuses on one man's family. They own a
small café in town & everyone knows everyone. When two small time crooks enter the café to rob
it, Viggo's character snaps into action & stops them & kills them, therefore saving everyone inside.
This brings much media coverage & stirs the attention of some other people. These people come &
visit him & his family & start harassing them. They make Viggo snap & his old self, a violent hit
man come to the surface & start acting crazy. He has it out with these men & proceeds to wipe out
everyone from his past. The film was decent, but didn't live up to the hype it got from the media,
even though there were some intense scenes, both violent & sexual!
