Some parts of the movie went on far too long.

Gripping Film Carried by Wilde .

Others were cut short or presented in a way that was confusing.

However, I would say that the style doesn't favour a balance with the overall theme nor with the story arc and ends up kind of hurting the pacing, making for what some of the audience might see as boring movie.

Certainly, Ms. Wilde was exhausted after every scene from the level of emotion she had to display throughout the film, so perhaps adding in some physical action would have been too much, but unfortunately, simply showing her emote for the length of the film makes for a pretty boring viewing experience.

Did I just waste my time watching.

Boring and predictable.

Yes, it a bit slow at times.

One of the most boring movie ever.

I watched 3 last night and this one as dull as the rest.

A truly fascinating idea that definitely has you gripping your seat throughout as you see her go to 3 different situations.

But this is a slow film, so slow that I almost pulled out my phone to do stuff.

Major plot issues, timeline confusion, dragged out scenes, terrible editing and a crazy slow pace.

Not a unique premise, but one that could certainly make for an entertaining action flick.

It's a shame this film hasn't received the attention and acclaim it deserves, as it's fraught with tension throughout, presents in an empathic and sensitive way and is really engaging.

The rhythm of the movie is slow and does not have much action as you would expect.

Do yourself a favor and go to see another movie,this one its gonna boring you to death.


Confusing storyline, and when she delivers justice we don't get to see it.

Crap movie, don't waste your time...

Movie was confusing in parts.

Don't waste your time on this!

waste of time.

SPOILER TIME When it comes to her own abusers, the film producers treat us to a drawn out, 30 minute terror scene of him turning the MC back into a victim before a cutaway hints that she killed him and then dumped his body.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen!!!!

Boring AF .

It is an intense, emotional surge.

It's the slowest and most boring movie ever.

This movie is boring plus it has too many unecessary scenes.

Don't waste your time on this.

Incredible performance and well worth the watch...

Don't waste your time unless you like boring exposition followed by plenty of male on female violence with the action being "spent" before the final kill.

A great watch if you're in the mood for a cold, thrilling, dark, bleak, gritty drama/thriller/horror.

I also welcome surprise and potential confusion that will provoke my mindset.

Boring .

Another bored to death female lead role film!

The bonus track of the DVD of "A Vigilante" includes a fascinating set of interviews with writer-director Sarah Daggar-Nickson, actress Olivia Wilde, and the film's production team.

Good they tackled the subject matter, but utterly boring.

It became violent and tedious.

Yes ,enough so that i watched till the end, only fastforwarding thru a few preachy moments that just dragged on and on...

It was just silly, predictable and confusing.

Slowest movie ever .

The realism portrayed in this film is intense.

what i find a bit confusing though are how the story is built up and the timeline of her actions.

I really wanted to like this movie, but it is so boring.

Entire film slow like hell!

The latter is much better, much more intense and at times awfully brutal and cruel to see.

Sure the story had hiccups and the ending may have been predictable at times but overall this was a heart wrenching and riveting story that needed to be told.


Slow, realistic, dark and gritty.

Absolutely one of the most boring movies ive ever seen!!

The anamnesis in the middle of the movie might also be confusing for some people, though it is very well accomplished and perfectly intelligible to real cinema enthusiasts.

Snooze fest and anticlimactic.

Slow in parts.


Covering the entire spectrum with the utmost conviction, from numb and empty to sobbing and devastated.
