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 »

Unexepectedly Engrossing, complex plot twists
31 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

I was drawn up in to the story from the beginning, talk about a character driven plot which took an almost eastern perspective in learning to deal with a constant torrent of life's vicissitudes focused on one outcome - being free of it all. Kenny Johnson gives a solid performance as an ex con trying to escape a sociopath gang boss played very effectively by Brad Dourif. Rainn Wilson demonstrates a range of talent that was unexpected as a spineless cousin making me wish he would show up in more straight dramatic roles diverging from his usual comic characters. The end was completely unexpected yet believable. Impressive well written and directed script with a great cast, good music and compelling performances made me glad I saw this one at the Valley Film Festival.
