    OMG Gerry needs to be nominated for best actor award for this!
    Its time that hollywood opens its eyes.

  2. Gerry’s acting looks phenomenal.

    i am so looking forward to seeing him in this new role.

    i am very happy that Gerry is doing so many different characters and making so many movies one after the other.

    i missed seeing him because in the past, all of his movies were far apart.

    My best wishes & I love you Gerry.

  3. The preview of LAC was BRILLIANT & I haven’t even seen Gerry in this movie
    yet, but if he isn’t nominated for an Award for this role, there is something wrong.
    He is AWESOME!!!

  4. Margaret Trembla says:

    Nice movie,I’m into Justice too.

  5. Jovial Mom says:

    This movie looks very exciting! Go Gerry!

  6. Elizabeth says:

    OMG it looks AMAZING. I love the roles Gerry has chosen over the years. He is so diversified.
    He can preform the hell out of anything. This is a fantastic role for Gerry. First he looks
    like a family man wounded by tradegy, then he seeks his revenge. Love to see him as a
    villain type. Cant wait to see this movie and Gamer next month. Everyone should know who
    he is now.

    I don’t know what to say. Mr. Butler has done it again. His dramatic flair comes through loud and clear. Well, done, Mr. B. I’m looking forward to buying all your upcoming movies on DVD. Your acting is incomparable.

    Continued best wishes, luv. Keep up the great work.


  8. I think that Gerard’s performance in this movie is going to be his best yet.I’ve always thought he gives his all in everything he does,but this movie gives him the chance to play all kinds of emotions.I am looking so forward to this.The music in the trailer reminded me of Shattered.

  9. BRAVO!The trailer is brilliant!!!!
    I’ve expected for a long time for Gerry to stretch his acting abilities in a movie.Now the trailer shows me Gerry has entered a new stage of his career! It’s difficult to be an actor and producer in one movie .and Gerry did it!
    Gerry,you’re incredible!!!Congratulations on your great great job!
    I’m a Chinese fan.and there’re many fans in China love you so much! !!!I really hope someday you’ll visit China !

  10. I think this looks like Gerard’s best movie since 300. Jamie Fox is awesome as well. I love Gerard in more serious, intense roles. Can’t wait to see it!!!

  11. chris davis says:

    Gerry is going to be totally awesome in this movie as always. I love it how he can do any type of film and be absolutely wonderful in every film he does. I am soo looking forward to this film

  12. elizabeth says:

  13. Anne Fledderman says:

    This looks awesome and quite the thriller! I was sitting on the edge of my seat with just this trailer.

  14. phoenixgirl says:

    I have said from the beginning that this will be Gerry’s crowning glory; his chance to show the rest of the world what we’ve known for years. This trailer is amazing. I think that F. Gary Gray did an amazing job putting this film together. I’m a fan of his other movies so I expect to enjoy his take on a difficult script. And Gerry … wow. I can’t think of any other actor out there who conveys such emotion, whether it’s heartbreak or vengeance, with just his facial expressions and eyes. I hope he’s very proud of his work as both an actor and producer in this movie. I cannot wait to see it – over and over again.

  15. ms oya mehmet says:

    Very different to what I expected and looks to be a new and exciting role for Gerard. Look forward to the release of the movie.


  17. Nerve racking for me but this shows many sides of Gerry and at his very best. Don’t know if I will survive the move but somehow will try.

  18. I love action/suspense movies, and this one seems to have both elements rolled into one. I have been so looking forward to seeing a trailer for this movie, and it was well worth the wait. Gerry and Jamie together. Two of my favorite men on the screen at the same time. Gerry you rock as a “bad” guy. In this instance I don’t blame you one bit. Please make more movies like this and Gamer. You do great in comedy, but you SHINE in these types of movies. You make “bad” look good, and from the trailer I’m rooting for the “bad” guy.

  19. Shannon Ryan says:

    Haha. It looks AMAZING. I simply can’t wait!

  20. FOXYMORON says:

    I can’t keep up with all of these new movies… … ooohhh a good mystery, crime, methinks a twist is in the tale some where!

  21. This looks like a great and very interersting movie. I can’t wait.

  22. this looks awesome- that is what our nation & the world needs, JUSTICE….not these jaded, corrupted laws that condemn the victim, not the criminal…WE ALSO NEED A NEW JUSTICE SYSTEM & A WHOLE NEW SET OF LAWS, THAT ARE — JUST—NOT SO CORRUPTED AS THEY ARE NOW…..Gerard looks incredible….God Bless him….he is a HERO FOR OUR GENERATION….!!!
    GO GERARD…..Our world needs HEROS…….

  23. This is the type of movie I’ve waited years to see Gerry do. It will finally show his range of acting.

    I will be first in line to see it and not just once.

    It will be added to my DVD collection and viewed often. I love this type of movie.

    bravo gerry!!

  24. OH MY GOD!!!
    I’ve just seen the trailer of Law Abiding Citizen!! It’s AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I like movies that talk about revenge and I’m sure I will love this one!!!!!!!!!!! and Gerry is the protagonist and also the producer, so…
    I can’t wait to go to the cinema!! And that evil smile on Gerard’s face at 01:26 gave me goose pimples!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I’m completely in love with him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you Gerry!!! You are the most perfect man on earth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  25. This trailer is incredible and Gerry is breathtaking. I can’t wait for this film.

  26. So intense!!!! This is a character I never thought Gerry would portray…I can’t wait!!!!!

  27. LilyMackay says:

    I’m simply speechless.

    Look at the movies that are out or are coming out in Aug, Sep, Oct:

    The Ugly Truth (rom-com)
    Gamer (Sci-Fi/fantasy thriller)
    Law Abiding Citizen (revenge thriller)
    (not to mention How To Train Your Dragon)

    Gerry is amazing. He can be funny, romantic, kick-ass (good) and kick-ass (bad); AND he is totally believable in each role. How great an actor IS this man? (Rhetorical question there, folks.)

  28. WOW the movie looks great! I really hope Gerry gets some recognition for this role.

  29. I am gald Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx have teamed up in this excellent thriller of a movie. For sure Janet is going to be in Box 5 watching Law Abiding Citizen. Gerry Butler is my favorite actor.

  30. Sandy Hargett says:

    I cannot wait for this movie. Gerard at his best, as usual. This trailer is amazing.

  31. I just want to give a big thank you to everyone at .net who put together the listing of early reviews of the LAC trailer! That was a fun read. Keep up the good work. This is a truely great site for everyone interested in GB’s work.
