After unsuccessful attempts to revive our ailing economy, the US is forced to cut funding to rural, low-population areas of the nation leaving millions to "fend for themselves". Amid ongoing territorial disputes, Nicholas Grim is forced to witness the brutal murder of his parents by Armed Militant Forces in Texas. Now an adult, Grim vows to avenge his family and uncover their killer's motives. Written by
Little Nicholas Grim has the misfortune of seeing his mother and father killed by 3 bad guys who for some unknown reason spare him. Our boy Grim is then taken in and raised by a kindly couple. When fully grown Grim goes out seeking revenge. Unfortunately for him the 3 guys who killed his parents now run a huge militia so things may be difficult.
I usually love revenge movies but this one has far too many problems to make it an enjoyable watch. The most evident problem is how slow this movie is. Long unnecessary pauses between lines, scenes were absolutely nothing happens it's an insomniacs dream. You expect a little action in this genre but this is just so boring. Also the camera work is the most basic I've seen in a while. Some scenes are shot entirely from one angle. No cuts to close ups of the actors while they're conversing just wide angle shots, it's very dull. But the worst sin it commits is in the final moments. When Grim finally gets to confront the leader of the bad guys something happens and it's so poorly edited that I wasn't even sure what was supposed to have happened. I mean, I waded through the boredom of this movie with no actual payoff at the end. It was a total slap in the face.
I didn't enjoy this movie at all. I'm never going to watch it again. I don't recommend it to anyone.
