    Anyone know why he was naked when they arrrested him?
    To some, he was just a boy. A boy who played football, a football player that grew to be a man. A man that took over a city, a city that he made his own, a city that stands behind him in hopes of becoming one of that cities all-time greats. To some, 2013 was a fluke. To some, he can't do it again. To some, he got lucky.

    To us though, to the Philly faithful, that QB is Nick Foles. To us, that's our QB.

    When he killed the killers and made them suffer for it, i thought that was simply beautiful, but to kill others who have little involvement or to kill the woman who was Jamie Fox's assistant or something, that was unjustified

    To show that he was unarmed, and was giving himself up willingly so that he wouldnt risk being shot at or beaten by the police...that way he could carry out his plan.

    That's kind of the way I saw it, at least...I don't know the answer for sure.

    Works for me.

    He was a broken man, he didn't want to live anymore so he was trying to prove to the world his point. That the justice system is a bunch of **** and people shouldn't be taking plea bargains on awful criminals.

    He didn't kill anyone, they could have defused every problem that he gave them. He was trying to prove his point and it allowed Jamie Foxx's character to become a better human being.

    So they wouldn't shoot him...kind of obvious. They are looking to kill the guy so if he has no clothes on he has no weapons, therefore they can't shoot an unarmed man.

    Agreed. I think his methods were neccasary to prove his point though. However I dont think they were justified if you know what I mean.

    I really need to re-watch this... because I can't really picture what your talking about. I remember when I saw this movie though I thought it was such a badass movie.

    Would you have liked the movie more if he only killed people that had a real significant role in what went down? Like instead of killing the blond lady he killed the Jamie Fox character?

    This. Killing the 2 guys that killed his family is definitely justifiable, but the rest were not.

    Yes and no. Jamie Fox staying alive was crucial. He was Gerrard Butlers legacy. And with him becoming the new DA Jamie Fox had real power to help spread his message you know. He needed to stay alive.
