Top 5 Revenge Movies

For this list, I’m discounting any sport rivalry movies. Because that isn’t revenge, it is morecomeuppance. Or soldiers given order and/or sent on a mission (such as Munich).

Someone had to wrong you and you had to go out of your wayto get payback. And/or the lead wronged someone and they are coming for payback.
My Top 5:
Braveheart – all because they killed his love.
Young Guns – all because those bastards killed John Tunstall.
Out for Justice – all because Richie killed Bobby.  
Conan the Barbarian – James Earl Jones and a bunch of jacked dudes killed Conan’s mother and father.
Old Boy – this is some serious revenge. If you haven’t seen it, you really should.  Don’t want to give anything away.
