Greg S.'s rating of the film Vengeance

The influences are obvious but in addition to those listed I'm surprised no one has brought up 'Point Blank' since both revenge films deal with the past and present simultaneously. The hero here forgetting what the word 'vengeance' means, writes it on his gun both revealing the past and seemingly writing his future. It is derivative of other films but these isights showcase To as a true auteur.
