Comments
In the movie, "Payback", Porter goes to extremes in his own war against Val. Val was Porter's party in a crime but failed to give Porter his share - $70,000 - and instead left him for dead. Porter decides to take on Val and the the syndicate, Outfit. 

Note that "Point Blank", 1967 movie directed by John Boorman and starring Lee Marvin and Angie Dickinson also based on the same book. 

Based on the novel “The Hunter,” by Richard Stark

7 Feb - I saw the movie last night and was totally disgusted. Payback is a terribly bloody and extremely violent film with no redeeming or entertainment value! None of the characters was likeable. The story line was boring and there were no intelligent actions or lines anywhere in the movie. As a Mel Gibson fan I can't believe he agreed to star in this film let alone do it. I hope he was paid well. All in all a waste of time and money. -- Disappointed fan in Hawaii.
