Richard Dane has killed a man. Everyone in the small town of LaBorde, Texas knows Dane acted in self defense-- everyone except Ben Russel, the father of the criminal who invaded Dane's home. When Russel comes looking for revenge against Dane's family, the two fathers are unexpectedly drawn into a conspiracy that conceals the vilest of crimes. Surrounded by police corruption, mafia deception, and underworld brutality, Dane, Russel, and eccentric PI Jim Bob Luke have discovered a game they may not survive.

I borrowed this on the basis of Sam Shepard's presence in the cast, but it was just not worth the effort. The film starts out looking oh so predictable, but then an interesting twist is introduced. But that could not offset the pedestrian, unconvincing acting. I gave up about halfway through.

Started promising but regressed to mundane action movie fare.

A gnarly, tough story. I'd watch it again.

I liked this movie more than most, but the background music seems to be constantly playing. It's not that good, and is poorly balanced with the rest of the audio.

Basically, I viewed this thriller to see what kind of films Don Johnson and Sam Shepard are doing nowadays. It is the story of an innocent citizen getting trapped in really, really bad stuff way over his head. A good mystery thriller in the beginning that sorta becomes conventional at the end.

Not bad. I would have given it more stars but some key parts of the movie do not make sense.

The constant driving music was distracting. It seemed like such a Halloween rip-off and so manipulative that it kept pulling me out of the movie and was very annoying. Fortunately the plot twists were good enough to save this movie from just being derivative.

Excellent acting, especially by Hall and Johnson. Some unexpected plot twists. Somewhat cheapened by violent, implausible ending.

I really enjoyed this movie- it has some good twists in it ( it's better to go into it knowing as little as possible ). Recommended- it's a smart, dark movie.

Father on son (different argument, no dog reference, used in book):

Russel (ex-con):- What are you gonna do when a dog goes bad on you, bites somebody or hurts somebody? There's only two things you can do, right?
You either chain him up or put him down. But which do you think is more cruel?
