Law Abiding Citizen—When Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) and his family become victims of a brutal home invasion, Shelton's life falls apart. The criminals brutally murder his wife and daughter. After Shelton testifies against the murderers on trial, Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx) tells him that the "flawed justice system" has to offer a plea bargain for one, in exchange for the execution of the other. Ten years later, Shelton admits the murder of the man who got away with murder. He calls Rice in to visit him in prison, where he delivers an ultimatum: fix the justice system, "or I'll kill everybody". Now, Rice finds himself in a deadly cat-and-mouse game as Shelton orchestrates, from behind bars, a series of brutal murders on high-profile targets. (R) Edwards 9, Edwards 22
