Dernière mise à jour : December 24th, 2016 at 12:36 pmBefore The Hunter by Darwyn Cooke, a while back, I saw Payback by Brian Helgeland, the crime flick with Mel Gibson in theaters. I liked the movie. I thought it was dark and cool. It had a cool anti-hero, lots of gunfights and a very unusual storyline. I thought the writers of the film were geniuses. How wrong I was!
