Not too bad. Some great performances. (MINOR spoiler)
Caught this movie at a film festival in Los Angeles. Fairly standard story about revenge. A man wants to kill another man's daughter because that other man killed his girlfriend accidentally. Some minor plot holes and a few things just didn't make sense. But I did like the "feel" of the film. But what I really liked, a lot, were some of the performances. Surprisingly excellent acting for an indie/low budget movie. In fact, it was just some REALLY excellent acting period, even if it were a big budget A list film. Wonder how that got so many good actors together quite frankly. Very very good. There was not a weak performance in the bunch. The characters Chas, Sully, Toni and Pickle were particularly wonderful and memorable. Not taking away from any other actor in the film, it's just that those performances were very top notch with some fantastic moments. Definitely worth watching, even more than once, just to catch these performances. Ya never know I suppose. Anyway, all in all, I enjoyed it.
