On the day of his daughter's birthday, William "D-Fens" Foster is trying to get to the home of his estranged ex-wife to see his daughter. His car breaks down, so he leaves his car in a traffic jam in Los Angeles and decides to walk. He goes to a convenience store and tries to get some change for a phone call, but the Korean owner does not oblige, tipping Foster over the edge. The unstable Foster, so frustrated with the various flaws he sees in society, begins to psychotically and violently lash out against them.
I never liked Joel Schumacher cinema and this movie did nothing to change my mind. Wanting to watch a film I had never seen with Michael Douglas, I ended up playing this film and I hated from the very first minute. While I can somehow understand the concept, I can easily say it does not work one bit. First, we would expect the main protagonist to be a victim of the story. But somehow, he ends up assaulting store owners and shooting at people.
The concept is that the character would freak out because of the little annoyances of the daily life. The problem is that it simply does not work.
I give it 2 out of 10. Very bad. The movie itself is an annoyance.
