The opening scene of the movie is very similar to the short story Real Life by Donald Ray Pollock. See more »
Once again, Hollywood ignored actual hunting regulations when making a hunting scene in Pennsylvania. 1. The characters, Red and Russell Blaze are not wearing the required amount of Blaze Orange. 2. The deer was not tagged after it was shot. Some talk about whether or not Russell had a license would have been entirely in order. See more »
Come work at the mill. I told you Roach would give you a job.
Rodney Baze Jr.:
No, man, I'd rather be fucking dead. Fuck the mill.
Fuck the mill. I work at the mill, you little fucker. It's good enough for me, it was good enough for our dad.
Rodney Baze Jr.:
The fucking mill killed our dad!

Maybe I was just expecting too much. Having seen the trailer, I was wanting to see this one for a while and excited to finally get an opportunity. It started great - lots of action and let's face it - you really can't go wrong with these actors. They're superb. But.. even great acting couldn't save this one. I found myself clock staring for the whole last hour. The build to the climax was far too long and the climax was certainly the worst part of the film. It was one of those movies where you anticipate the many exciting, different ways the story could play out and when you see how it actually does, you just wish you had spent the night laying on the couch and watching something on Netflix. Wait for it to come out on Redbox. Shouldn't be long.
