Great Movie

10/10
Author: claypipe from Leicester, Massachusetts, USA
16 January 2005

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!

Tense

This film is quite a shocker through the tension it generates. The baddies are really quite frightening and suspense is maintained right up till the end. Well worth a viewing !
