28 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What an overlooked gem this film is. This is a great movie, for a few reasons. One is the acting, when you start this movie you may think god, this acting is atrociously over the top with the characters laughing hysterically for seemingly no reason and the less than natural dialogue. But Ben is just a free soul on the run who is lovable in every way. And the Indian starts as a stoic, cold character then becomes free willing and funny character, the arc is beautiful. This film's plot isn't the best but it gets the job done but it's really about the characters. The villain in this film is great, bringing a new layer of creepiness and intensity to this movie, which amazingly segwayed from a fun, sometimes dark movie to an all out melodrama. As soon as he cocks his gun at the church door, you know this won't end well. Without giving anything else away this is a fantastic diamond in the rough and is DEFINITELY worth a watch.
