Tanx to you all for steering me toward Payback. The best hardboiled flick I've seen in some time.

A question: At one time Hollywood always made sure the killer got his in the end. I think it was part of a morals code they had to go by. Obviously not so anymore.

I can remember when somebody was shot on TV, they always got it in the shoulder, or maybe the bullet creased their skull. Never did they die. Then Gunsmoke came on, and Matt Dillon actually shot somebody dead. All of America came right out their chairs.
