The Reviews for Payback: Straight Up (2006) 1080p

Reviewed byDan LovetereVote: 8/10/10

I think this was miles ahead of the theatrical cut. People probablyknock it so much because of the "bond" they have established with thetheatrical version over the years.

I having never seen either version, I unbiasedly watched Payback a fewdays ago. I liked it, but I didn't think the last act suited the movieat all. It felt not only tacked on, but it had a different tone andtook the movie in a different direction that it should have gone.Gibson's character is a very destructive person, and I just couldn'tsee it ending so perfectly.

When I saw this version however, I thought it was not only a muchbetter film, and suited the tone of the film much more, but it is alsoa better homage to the revenge-type films from the 70's.

This film had a very consistent musical score that was very pleasant tolisten to throughout. It's the music that should have been. As much asI love Jimi Hendrix and BB King, they were out of place as you neverreally heard music like that in 70s revenge films. I liked the look ofthe film as well - the bleached, high contrast look. It was perfect forthe gritty nature of this version.

It was also a much darker version. Mel Gibson is much harsher towardhis wife when he comes home, and as hard as that is to watch, it feelsmore appropriate. He is justified in doing what he does. I felt she gotoff too easy in the theatrical cut.

People complain that they miss Gibson's humor in this version. I don'tthink the book its based on was ever meant to be humorous, nor weremany 70s revenge films. There was a bit of humor in the director's cut,but it all stayed serious in the end, unlike the joke of an end in thetheatrical cut.

There were a lot of bits missing here and there from both versions,none of which was really missed from this edit. I noticed that sceneswere missing, but it added a bit more mystery to the plot.

The most important change to this cut is in the last act. In thetheatrical cut, I found the last act to be very trite, light and out ofplace. For a movie that began very dark, it ended on a light note thatdidn't suit the film at all. The final act in this edit was more inline with the great endings of 70's style films. It kept building andbuilding and building. You didn't quite know what was going to happen.It also has a very mysterious ending. You don't quite know what isgoing to happen and therefore it makes you think. The theatricalversion was severely dumbed down. I guess they didn't want us to think.

This is the version that should have been released theatrically. It isthe version that I will revisit in the future.

Peep This ReviewsReviewed bynewbluVote: 8/10

Director's Cut could mean any number of interference, re- shoots, poor test screenings. Most of the time that just means a couple more minutes added but sometimes there are drastic differences from the original released. This is one of those big changes. I liked this movie with it's sharp writing and nice mix of violence with dark humor. 'Like' has become 'love'. If you've never seen it and your a big film buff I'd say watch both versions to see the difference. If you've never seen it, Straight Up is hands down the way to go.

Almost a different movie.Reviewed byTehmehVote: 9/10

I liked the "original" cut of this film, but this was really something. Rarely do we see a cut where the last act is almost completely changed. Some characters are completely scrapped and whole new happenings take place. I believe this cut is more in line what director Helgeland originally had in mind.

This cut is a little more violent and straightforward. The confrontation with Porter and his wife is longer and better, but most of the differences are at the end. None of those convenient, Hollywoodish shenanigans that the theatrical cut had in the last act (which I didn't even mind that much, I like that cut too), but just plain old "from A to B" material with nice, gritty execution instead.

When you're a little over 60 minutes in, you'll see the change. It's a whole other movie from that point on. Gone is Mel Gibson's voice-over narration too.

I gave the theatrical version 8/10, and this one is just more satisfying and tonally intact, so 9/10 it is. A simple, unapologetic old-fashioned revenge thriller with plenty of action and just enough humor to make it stand out.

I'm happy to own the blu-ray which includes both versions. Certainly worth the price. If you like good old Mel's movies and haven't seen this, you should. Recommended for action lovers.
