Payback is a 1999 action crime drama directed by Brian Helgeland. In the film, Porter (Mel Gibson) is a bad guy, he murders, steals, cheats and gambles. His partner, Val Resnick (Gregg Henry), wife, Lucy (Deborah Under) and Porter have just pulled off a heist worth $140,000. Then his thug life starts to catch up with him, his partner double crosses him and his wife shoots him in the back. The couple leaves Porter for dead and takes off with the money. Porter, however, pulls through the ordeal and is bent on getting his money back when he is recovered. He soon learns that the loot is now in the hands of the Outfit, a major crime organization, but that does not stop him from seeking out his share of the money.
