A History of Violence

A History of Violence (2005)

Operating a diner in a small-town community, Tom Stall (Viggo Mortensen) and his wife (Maria Bello) are the picture of normalcy. But when Tom prevents a robbery and enjoys hero status in the local media, he attracts the wrong kind of attention from mobsters (Ed Harris and William Hurt) who think he's someone else. David Cronenberg (The Fly) directs this taut suspense-thriller based on the graphic novel by John Wagner and Vince Locke.
My Two Cents: There's just not much here to like; Ed Harris' glorified cameo can't carry all the dead wood. Viggo's not a leading man.
