15 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i have yet to see the movie, but i must reply to some of the previous comments. the people portrayed in the movie are my family. and as for "needless violence"-these people were needlessly murdered. Mary was forced to watch her family die. she was raped. she was lead to believe she was being let go and then shot in the back. i don't know how the movie goes, i don't know how the book goes. but i know they were all brutally murdered and i can guarantee you all that if those bastards ever escape jail again, they will be murdered themselves... people are still extremely upset about what happened and believe that justice has not been served...
