Great little-known film
19 July 2004 | by (Durham, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This was an awesome movie that was well-acted. Sean Patrick Flanery was a great choice for the lead character, having done other vengeance-related movies (Boondock Saints). The soundtrack to this film was really good. Especially the use of Skillet's "Will You Be There" in the dramatic scene. I'm not too sure about the film's rating of "R" because it has a great spiritual message that should be seen by teens. Also, it is obvious that the intentions of the filmmakers are to get a specific message about human vengeance across to the viewers of this film. Granted, the subject matter of vengeance against pedophiles isn't exactly kiddie material, but it should be at least PG-13. I really enjoyed this movie and can't wait to see other releases from Serendipitous Films.
