Goofs

When Jed leaves the Union lines to go after Jack, in the shots from behind him he is carrying a full-length rifle, and in the shots from in front, he is carrying a much shorter carbine with more of the barrel and ramrod sticking out from the stock. See more »

Dog vomit
4 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While the overall story line holds great promise, the movie falls short by wielding a clumsy script and incongruous story line. One is constantly bashed over the head with the movie's many "points" in an unbelievable and unnatural line of dialogue in each scene as characters seem to line up in some shots, hovering in the background, waiting for their turn to speak to the main character as if they cannot see or hear the character before them. On top of that, the dialogue from some characters seems to come out of left field motivated by some unseen force having nothing to do with the environment, circumstances, or previous scene. Combined with the complete, utter lack of congruity between scenes and the overuse of narration, the movie constantly breaks the fourth wall and one has to force oneself back into the story over and over again. I'm not saying it's the worst movie ever made, but it's pretty darn close.
