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 Simple But Strong Story
13 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grabbed this movie off the shelves of my local library without much thought, because they were closing in a few minutes and I didn't have time to make a proper selection.

When I got home and looked more closely at the cover, I thought, 'Oh, great. This can't be much good.'

Surprise, surprise.

The plot is far from a new one: convicted felon gets out of prison and must grapple with the real world. Old associates make themselves known, and have no good in store.

'Frank' played by Kenny Johnson, is our ex-con. Frank is perennially confused and even a tad bumbling. He quickly learns of the new complexities of the world he's been absent from for the last 22 years, and is quick to give up any notion he's ever going to have a normal life again.

Enter his old gang and boss, the only family willing to take him back, but at a terrible price. Frank is then made an offer that he cannot refuse, or he will die.

While the low-budget production makes itself glaringly obvious from the start, as well as a few bad-acting hic-cups here and there, the story rapidly develops into something intriguing and resourceful. What will our protagonist do? What will his solution be? How will he get out of this?

The movie is a delight, and the soundtrack is excellent.
