Storyline

Set amongst the rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania's once prosperous coal country, Out of the Black is a suspensful, compelling tale of two brothers, Cole and Patrick Malby, and their quest to unravel the mysteries surrounding their father's death. Based around the true story of one of the countries worst mining accidents on record, this heartfelt drama follows the plight of two brothers' quest for the truth. Hiding from their past and keeping to themselves, the two young men afford a meager, day by day existence, working their small, dilapidated farm. But all that is about to change, when a strange woman, Cait MacLochlainn, arrives in town to find her long lost father, a man she's never met. Through a series of events, Cole reluctantly resolves to help Cait locate her father. The result proves to be a profound journey of personal truths, freedom and, finally...love. Written by Anonymous

Not too bad, for Tyler fans only though

The reason a friend and I watched this is because we are big fans of Tyler Christopher as Nikolas Cassidine on "General Hospital." It's not too bad of a film, runs just like a TV-movie and even has some nice outdoors scenes.

What was really unintentionally funny about this film was that Tyler seemed very out of place, not being "hick enough" for his role. It was kind of like watching Nikolas Cassidine on a farm. Even funnier was spotting the few times in the film he tried to do a "hick" accent, even spicing up things a bit by throwing in a "y'all" here and there. Once he even said it with the accent. The funniest was probably when he was trying to get the New York girl to jump in the water with him, when he slipped into the accent and stated that "y'all city folk" or something don't do things like that!

The brothers going after the same girl was kinda cool, as was Tyler's obvious attitude throughout the film. One surprise was Sally Struthers, looking a tad slimmer these days, in a completely embarrassing minor role (cameo?) that isn't going to help her career any.

There's even some cool old cars around, and a real old-school southern-type black man to help out. The extras are actually decent, with everyone kissing up to Tyler in the "behind the scenes" section. The narration on the trailer is absolutely hilarious. Tyler's line of "leave the killing to the killers" may have been big if it was in a bigger movie. And if he wasn't just killing a mere cow when he was saying it! (For the record, his character and his brother were in the meat business.) To watch this, it definitely helps that you are a Tyler fan thanks to his work on GH. If you are, it's actually a halfway decent film, could have been a lot worse!
