I have seen much worse
23 December 2012 | by (Dominican Republic) – See all my reviews

Acting was a bit wooden at times, but overall I enjoyed the movie. It was coherent and interesting enough to see to the end. I really do not understand the low ratings that have been given to the movie. Mind you there were no car chases and no that much graphic violence. Both big selling factors. The one thing that was lacking was a central character. The killer did not have the gravitas to convince you that he was really that bad a dude and the sheriff was pretty one dimensional as well. The low life and the stripper (minor characters) were sufficiently convincing, but the retard brother was not. Just putting a silly hat on a fat guy does not a retard make. In summary, in spite of some very evident flaws the movie is quite watchable.
