Did You Know?


The description of Dolan as having a thousand names, being able to look at you a certain way so that your prostate goes bad, and killing the grass where he spits, is actually taken nearly word-for-word from the description of Randall Flagg, The Walkin' Dude from Stephen King's novel 'The Stand'.

Robinson is following Dolan's Cadillac to Los Angeles and at the detour, the sign points "DETOUR" to the right yet the highway flag-person sends them to the left into the desert. See more »


Robinson: The view from hell is clear and bright. The sun is black, the night is radiant. Good is evil, evil is good. Sweet insanity understood.

Christian Slater is a good bad guy
1 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Robinson (Wes Bentley) and his wife Elizabeth (Emmanuelle Vaugier) are fellow school teachers. Elizabeth is horse riding in the desert and runs across human traffickers. The fans in the truck broke down killing some of the girls. Elizabeth witnesses gangster pimp Jimmy Dolan (Christian Slater) killing the drivers and one girl trying to escape. She rides away but loses her phone. The couple reports it to the police but he is uninterested in the illegals. They go home to find one of the dead girls in their bed and they go to the FBI. She's committed to testifying but is killed in a car bomb. Robinson falls into a deep depression and then aims to take revenge. Meanwhile Dolan is disagreeing on payment with the Snakeheads.

Christian Slater is chewing up the screen. He is a good bad guy. Wes Bentley has crazy eyes. He looks like he's permanently tense. It doesn't allow him to change his character's feelings and the character goes through a lot of changes. It's one of the big problems. The other problem is the general lack of production value. I assume it's due to a lower budget and won't fault the movie for it. It has the basis of a good psychological thriller but Wes is not able to deliver it completely.
