Gordie: Everybody calls you Mr. Thibadeau. Is that because of what you did in the war?
Louis Thibadeau: No, Gordie, it's because I'm old. Besides that war was a long time ago, nobody remembers it.
Gordie: Paddy does.

Great Movie
16 January 2005 | by (Leicester, Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

Throughly intense. Just goes to show why you should never judge a book by its cover. Charles Durning portrayal of an aging veteran is both surprising and fantastic. He's not the usual Gibson or Jackson type star Hollywood would use to enhance this character. The really scary factor in this movie is that it could actually happen anywhere. there's no super movie special effects, just straight out home brewed justice. This movie not only illustrates social and cultural stress of changing urban demographics, it delves deep into the psyche of post traumatic stress that many war veterans live with on a daily basis. Definitely a must see, you may never look at your war veteran neighbor the same again. Now, if this would only be distributed on DVD!
