History of Violence, A (2005)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
03.21.06

History of Violence, A (2005) Two violence prone robbers try to stick up a small town diner, but the diner's owner (Viggo Mortensen) quickly takes matters into his own hands and kills them in a few minutes. Everyone there is amazed that he did this and soon the local television is tauting him as an American Hero. The last thing he wants is publicity. Soon, several suspicious characters, including a horribly scarred man with one eye (Ed Harris) show up at the diner and insist that he's really someone else, someone they used to work with in Philadelphia. He continually denies this-until he's forced to deal with these thugs. His wife sees the whole thing-and he finally admits that he used to be a killer, but that he's not the same man anymore. She's understandably upset because she now thinks she doesn't know him at all. He takes off back to Philadelphia because he has to confront his brother (William Hurt), who he deserted years ago.

Although this is an excellent character-driven movie, there's nothing in it that would make you think it's a David Cronenberg directed film, which is both good and bad.
