Goofs

Chris tells Frank that the .22-caliber revolver Frank will use for an assassination doesn't require a silencer, apparently in the belief that such a pistol is inherently quiet. But a .22 revolver emits a noticeable report; if noise suppression was a concern, the gun should have been equipped with a silencer. See more »

A Pleasant Surprise!
29 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Few Options" offers a surprising story of a man getting out prison in early middle age. Kenny Johnson gives a moving performance as a man who must remake his life for the very first time. George Pappy delivers a deft script and direction in a first commercial effort, an impressive achievement. Original music and sound are amazing. Also look for some surprises by several famous character actors performing to great effect in some key small roles. "Few Options" compares very favorably with "Drive" as a thriller with some surprises in performances and plot. And like "Drive" a relatively simple premise is brought to a powerful conclusion that stays with the viewer after the movie ends.
