Excellent Movie
4 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very good movie. I just wish that it would have been shown more times, and at more theater's then what it was, so more people could have seen it. I thought that it could have been rated PG-13. I am from Louisiana and I think that the area where the film was shot was shown in a very realistic form. There were a few twists to the movie that kept your attention. The ending of the movie will surprise most people who watch it. I think there needs to be more movies like this about people from Louisiana living on the Bayou. This was the best movie of this type that I have seen about Louisiana. Again I wish that I had another opportunity to see this movie again. I can't wait until the DVD come out so I can go and buy it.
