Law Abiding Citizen

Justice never comes easy. Clyde Shelton (Butler), a retired "Think Tank", is told that one of the criminals who killed his wife and daughter will not be convicted, as much of the evidence against him was compromised by a bungled forensic investigation. After Shelton pleads with Nick Rice (Foxx), a power-hungry attorney with a 96% conviction rate, to take the case to court, Rice tells Shelton it does not matter what is right, but what can be proved in court. Rice then makes a deal with Clarence Darby, the person who raped Shelton's wife and murdered his daughter, for third-degree murder, while his accomplice, Rupert Ames, is sent to death row, for a charge of what is essentially theft.

You can read the rest of the plot here on Wikipedia.

Jamie Fox is a good actor but this movie had Denzel Washington written all over it. The plot just sounds like the type of Story you would want Denzel Washington acting in it. And yep, I'm a big fan. :P
