    Seriously, this is the only movie where I felt the revenge scenes were on par. Every other movie that comes from bleeding-heart liberal land has the protagonist suffering and the antagonist getting a quick and easy out- usually off camera.

    The Hitcher (original + remake) was good too. Gritty, unapologetic. It's not quite a full revenge flick, but it transitions into a good one.

    I enjoyed John Wick, but
    the death scene for the guy that started the whole mess to begin with was extremely lackluster, off-camera, and 0/10 for me. Crap^2

    Most on this site are too young to remember one of the original revenge movies. Early 1970's "Walking Tall" (not the remake with Dwayne Johnson).

    Based on a true story.

    'Death Wish' with Charles Bronson. Apparently there is a remake of this set for 2017.

    Shared before the wipe, but "Rampage" is somewhat of one.

    John Wick, AKA Baba Yaga, is definitely at the top of the list for recent revenge movies....

    Can't wait for February.

    My Bodyguard is an older movie staring Adam Baldwin, is a revenge/retribution movie about bullying in high school. May not be action packed enough for some, but regardless is a decent movie.
    A more recent one that I enjoyed is The Revenant.
