I like that Memento is up there. That's easily one of my all-time favorites movies. Top 5, actually.

Don't like seeing V for Vendetta so low, though. That movie is absolutely great. I'd definitely rank it above some that are ranked above it here.

Leon: The Professional should be mentioned too.

The Professional is number 3 on the wouldn't be a good revenge list without was a pretty good list though. I agree with Memento...loved it.

Oh, completely looked over it then. I'll jist go take my foot out of my mouth now lol

Same here. Memento still stands as one of my favorite movies.

Seeing Count of Monte Cristo listed as a nominee makes me wish to see a 'pure' adaptation of that book in the near future. As it stands, Monte Cristo is (currently) my favorite fictional novel.

i like memento and kill bill being on top of the list. However there is one particular movie that also came to my mind when mentioning revenge films and that would easily be included and that would be Oldboy.
