Payback: Straight Up (2006)


Director: Brian Helgeland

Writer: Brian Helgeland

(Based on a novel by Donald E. Westlake)

Saw the original theatrical version when it first came out.  This is the “Straight Up” cut or Director’s Cut as normal people would call it.  Apparently Helgeland got taken off the project in post and the theatrical version is not what he had intended.  This DVD/Blu-Ray Director’s Cut is an attempt to present the film as originally intended.  Pretty good and very interesting to see the differences between the two.  This cut is on Netflix Instant right now.
