i recently watched 7 days. a revenge film with a positive message.
i don’t normally watch revenge movies because they seem so pointless.
the only thing that holds the movie together is the ‘premise’ that someone has done something really bad, and then that person has to pay for what they have done, with torcher and terrible pain.
if you take away the ‘premise’, there is just someone inflicting terrible pain and torcher to another person.
how is that good?
yes. when we experience loss, the consuming grief is unbearable.
this may have us engaging in fantasies of revenge, but this does pass with time.
you just gotta hang in there until the worst of the pain is over. sometimes that can take a while.

so this film is not only really well made, but also shows the downside to revenge, and the inevitable degradation of the person committing the revengeful act.
This movie is not for everyone, as it deals with some very heavy issues, but it has a lot of merit for showing the negative consequences of revenge.
