Is revenge ever justified?
revenge is never justified. —jesus christ. very true but only if they are a police officer. anyone else is just as evil as the first killer. My interpretation is that action movies rely on our strong moral intuition about the righteousness of "making the bad guys pay." Like a lot of art, action movies work by bypassing sanctimonious propaganda and showing (not saying!) important truths that, on some level, we already know. Truths like: Someone who kills the murderer of an innocent child deserves a medal, not a jail sentence.  An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Is revenge ever justified?
