Stupid film
Verified purchase
Just watched this on Amazon prime. This is the most unreal film I have ever seen. Bank robbery in a town which must have 10,000 inhabitants yet only the 8 or so people in the bank, a couple of people in the café and a lady in a car are the only ones there. Everyone else (except the sheriff and his deputy) are missing. Most amazing sequence is at the end when the sheriff on a horse chases along the high street with his rifle and keeps up with the main criminal who is on a motorbike. Totally Stupid. Acting is appalling, plot is wafer thin and the effects pretty tame. No idea how anyone can rate this above 1 star. Would not recommend this unless you have absolutely nothing else to do in life.

Oh dear

Well, I'm trying to think of something good to say....um I liked the horse, by far the best actor in it and it can have the one star all to itself. One reviewer said that their was KKK clothing in a picture of the priest. I missed that but if it's true then that's a disgrace, as that wasn't what the film was about and therefore gratuitous. This film was full of token people i.e. the one black guy, the one horizontally challenged woman and the one hispanic. The three lead women were modelled on barbie and the men were modelled on Ken in the main. The plot was paper thin, the acting - well my mind kept drifting to my shopping list - was their a director? Abysmal, nothing going for it except for the horse, it would have got two stars if there had been a dog in it.

Utter crap
Verified purchase
What a stupid film. So many questions:

Why toss the shotgun in the dumpster? I get you don’t use guns but your bloody partner right next to you does.
Why wait until before the armoured car to rob the bank? It can’t be because of the timed lock as it would need to be opened to deposit the money.
Why did the guy in the armed car not just drive off?
Why does only 1 person in this backwater town have a gun? Does the NRA not exist?
Does the woman whose daddy was a priest realise he is dressed in a KKK outfit on the picture?
Why load money into saddle bags rather than just use the truck it was in?
What kind of army ranger and police officer fires their pistol one handed?
Why does the town power go out when all they did was cut the mobile phone mast?
Did the guy doing the casting realise all the leading women look identical? Like he had a type

Utter crap film. Genuinely the stupidest one I have seen in a long time.

Poor
Verified purchase
The main problem I have is the characters act in inexplicable ways. Obviously you suspend disbelief with fiction but some of the stuff in this one was too much of a stretch. Some stiff acting, a lot of plastic surgery for a small American town. A handful of residents who fit into a church and the rest of the town deserted even though there were hundreds of houses and businesses. It’s absolute rubbish, corny stuff towards the end, I can’t believe Guy Pierce did it, he must have lost a bet.

Terrible, not sure this would make the “B” movie list.
Verified purchase
Well, maybe not terrible but far short of good, even tad short of fair.
Like Guy Pearce, but not this movie.
What was he thinking, signing up to this?
I seldom write a bad review but unfortunately I’ve had to make an exception this time.
Saw Guys name on the poster and know that generally speaking, movies he is in are as a rule, at least half decent.
Unfortunately this time my assumptions were wrong.
It’s almost like, not getting what it says on the tin.
Where do I start?
Certainly not an original plot. In fact nothing here is original.
Very slow, mostly due to cinematography editing and direction.
Acting throughout, by most, is poor to say the least.
Characters are about as believable as the tooth fairy.
At no point do you feel any connection with any of them.
On that point, where were the rest of the cast?
This is a town, albeit a sleepy country town, nevertheless, a town, with houses that families live in. Where were they?
With computers, PlayStations, Xbox’s, pets and the like, it would take more than disabling one cell tower, to cut communications off in this day and age. With landline telephone, broadband internet, many different Cell operators, mobile phones with cameras by the millions, radios and the occasional CB, it seems extremely far fetched that a biker gang could isolate a town in this way.
It would seem that they ran out of money before they turned the first reel.
Not sure any of these people were actually actors, (Guy being the exception) as acting in this movie was wooden, unbelievable and completely unnatural. Maybe it was just a little too much plastic surgery.
Poor storyline.
Poor acting.
Poor producers, who I’m sure will be wanting there money back.
Poor…
The list goes on.
Positive that in a few years, when Guy is being interviewed on one of those talk shows, he will say, “Oh, that movie”
Not one of his best, by at least a million miles.
You have been warned.

Truly abominable
Verified purchase
Apart from Guy Pearce who is an excellent actor this film is drivel. A director who treats their audience as idiots. Opening scene so we know what happened. Skip five minutes and Guy Pearce is describing in detail what happened. Bizarre coffee conversation completely out of tune with the narrative. Cut the mobile cable and the towns power goes out. Terrible editing terrible story. Actors suddenly appearing then vanishing. The soundtrack belongs in a sci-fi film. Ridiculous orchestral crescendos. A heist in a town with no population. Paper thin characters This should be the definitive film for all film school students on how to fail.

Sympathy to Guy Pierce and a couple of the others actors...
Verified purchase
A slim storyline for sure but I only wanted a no brainer action movie to pass a wet evening; to say that I was disappointed would be an understatement.. Poor Guy Pierce (at the viewing) must have headed to the nearest bar after twenty minutes at the most, I unfortunately don't drink these day but the thought did cross my mind. Actors don't really know how good or how bad a film may turn out until they see the final product (yeah, even the rushes should have given him cause to pause but I guess he'd already banked the money). As Hitchcock famously said, "..it's not the actor(s) (puppets)... it's the Director that makes a movie.." York Alec Shackelton, the Director, is a name I'll never forget and will keep an eye out for but only so that I can avoid anything else he may have 'made'.
Some awfully wooden acting from the minor support caste, in some cases you could actually see the actor waiting for the cue 'action' (terrible editing), the 'technical' aspects of prop handling were laughable with several scenes featuring a Remington 'sniper rifle' in the hands of both the main character and his deputy, very obviously NOT being used correctly (the scope eye relief distance way too close, even for a myopic beginner). Loads of unnecessary padding with people doing lots of posing and running about to no end?? I only sat through it so that I could do a very fair review. I genuinely felt very sorry for the main bad guy who did a fantastic job of trying to deliver the worst drivel one can imagine in a script... Both the aforementioned and Guy Pierce, did their best but It's not even worth watching for a laugh.

Racist film
Verified purchase
Why do the main female characters dress like they're in an episode of Dukes of Hazzard and have more filler in their faces than a 10kg bag of hamburger helper and so much botox they can only move their eyeballs? Why is Guy Pearce's character permitted to work in any kind of US Marshal capacity when he refuses to use a firearm? Why is his Deputy less effective that my 97 year old gran? Why does not a single soul in the town possess a mobile phone to call for help? The ONLY participant in this film to demonstrate any kind of sincerity of feeling was the HORSE who looked genuinely mortified to have been dragged into this utter, utter dribbling mess of a film. It was so completely and horribly one dimensional and reliant upon tired cliched characters that I don't even care that the reason behind the main biker's grievance thinking about this particular town's inhabitants was never really made clear. The botoxed actresses don't have to worry about their lack of performance as Guy Pearce was equally flat and expressionless and what's his excuse? The one black actor gets killed. Bad.
