I enjoyed the movie
20 February 2001 | by (Batesville Ar) – See all my reviews

I could relate to some of the characters in this movie, which may be a bit scary to some out there, but I live in the Ozarks and some of the characters in this movie were real to me. It had some good action and the corruption in this small town may have been a bit exaggerated for the movie effect, but not so far from fact as you may think if you never have lived or known people in the hills and real small towns where one or just a few families can run a town. I related this movie to a bit of Deliverance and First Blood in plot and action.
