Civic Duty is one of those films that sorta grows on you. It started out looking like a typical left-wing apologist film about judging Middle Easterners. It turned into a pretty darn good thriller.
Peter Krause does an amazing job in his role as an accountant turned vigilante. He is 100% believable whether stalking around nervously or losing it completely. Do not let the first fifteen or twenty minutes of the film turn you away, the payoff is well worth the wait.
The “big ending” was a bit cornball, but once again, Krause proves why he is one of the most underrated actors. Good stuff.
RATING 8 out of 10
