Storyline

After his in-laws are brutally murdered, Deputy John Cooper is ordered to escort the accused, his life-long mute friend, Martin Lowery, to be hanged. As they make the journey to the gallows, John struggles between his duty as a lawman and the desire to exact revenge on his best friend. Unknown to John, not only is Martin carrying a dark secret that holds many lives in the balance-they are being hunted by a band of ruthless killers who want to make sure the truth stays buried.

What the heck was this?
3 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wrote a review of this right after it came out, but too late to beat, at the time, the two people hired by the directors mom to call it an Oscar effort. Where did it go? Hmmmmm, anyway studio lackeys here it is again. This is tripe. It is done by a bunch of nobody's with almost no money and even less talent. If I was Tara, Justin's wife, I would have flogged him for not letting me star in his stupid attempt at a motion picture. She probably did not want to ruin her chances elsewhere, because if you go down the list of "stars" in this rubbish, they never worked again. The story, music, actors (term used loosely), everything just makes you want to hurl. I have never seen a bigger waste of time or money. Thank goodness it only cost me a dollar at the local rental store. Did I watch it all? No, after the ridiculous killing of the miner that nobody could figure out, and then some really poor acting, I showed my player mercy and allowed it to spit that sht out. Even graded on a curve this tripe gets something below an F.
