Well there's that kevin Costner flick "Revenge." I'm pretty sure that's a revenge flick. It's ok, but for some reason Tarantino has a dying love for it.

If you like Payback, definately check out Point Blank (not the Keanu Reeves one). It's based on the same book Payback is.

Try Shawshank Redemption for a really good revenge movie.

Hear, hear, but I prefer the Gérard Depardieu 6-hours-split-over-two-DVDs mini-series version. And add another vote for Payback.

Mask of Zorro
Gladiator

and to an extent - Braveheart

I think the original poster should update the first post with all these titles to make it easier to sort through. how about it?

Just about every Western.

Just my opinion, but I thought "The Punisher" was easily the worst movie I've seen in a long time.

Does "Gladiator" count?

One other movie I can think about is Out for Justice, Steven Seagal. At the end, he really beats the guy up.
