Getting Revenge In Movies
Anytime someone does us wrong or we feel that we have been mistreated, we like to pay them back in our own way. You also have to be careful and make sure you treat everyone right, so someone isn’t looking to get you back for something they think you did. Sometimes we might not even be aware that someone is paying us back and when we learn about it; it comes as a shock. You can call it “paying someone back” or you can refer to it as revenge. Revenge can be sweet if we are the ones revenging, but what if you’re caught on the wrong side?
You might recall a movie that was released in 1962 and done again in 1992 called Cape Fear. Nick Nolte plays Sam Bowden in the 1992 remake and his character is unaware of what’s going on. It seems he convicted an innocent man years ago and now that man has served his time and is looking for revenge. Robert De Niro’s character Max Cady is portrayed as the victim, when he had to serve time for a crime that he apparently didn’t commit. Now that Max Cady is free from jail, he feels like he has lost his life and the only thing left to do, is to get revenge on the man that took away his life. So you get to really see the extreme measures that someone will go through, just to get revenge on someone they think has did them wrong in the past.
Coming to theaters this Christmas is another movie that deals with revenge and it’s called Sweeney Todd. For more information you can visit the official Sweeney Todd movie site. This is another good example of revenge in movies. Sweeney Todd who is played by Johnny Depp is in the same boat as Max Cady was in Cape Fear. He feels that he’s been given a punishment that was too harsh for him as well and he decides to take things in his own hands. This movie really looks like a good one for the upcoming Christmas season and you can learn more about this movie if you visit Todd Sweeney on MySpace. Let’s see if Todd Sweeney is like Max Cady or if he’s worse?
