Dead Man's Shoes
Directed by Shane Meadows
After Richard’s time in the army is over, the soldier returns to his hometown to get even with the thugs who brutalized his brother years ago. When the gang members learn Richard’s back, they try to eliminate him. But Richard is always a step ahead, making his moves carefully until each crook has paid for their crime. Director Shane Meadows (THIS IS ENGLAND) was always a keen observer of rough and tough male characters, and in the great Paddy Considine, he found the ideal lead to play such a vicious and capable killer. An absolute must-see for revenge-flick fans.
A soldier returns to his home to get even with the thugs who brutalized his brother years ago.

I watched this while living in Ireland, this is not the original title. I bawled like a baby glad you have this amazing film...while violent and disturbing this is NOT horror,
Definitely more sad than anything but a good flick. Everyone got what was coming to them. Grim and upsetting film, enjoyed it overall.
Nice job working the story through the entire film.
Thoughtfully done, I cried at the end. Highly recommend this movie.
I saw this years ago..watching again. A nice revenge flick..
