Quotes

[first lines]
Bud Carter: South Louisiana in the 1980s was a different kind of time and place. Some called it lawless. But it wasn't. Others said we just got a certain way of doing things down here. But it ain't that either. Instead, I call it what it was. Hell with the lid off.

What to Expect: Bad Country
9 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why You Might Like It: The film has plenty of big names (Matt Dillon, Willem Dafoe, Tom Berenger, Amy Smart) that all do a solid job in their roles. No one stands out as being amazing, but they all play their parts well. I thought the most impressive thing about the movie was that the stage is set very nicely by some great cinematography and scenery that seems to put you in the film. There is plenty of action, drama, and suspense to keep you entertained and it makes for a good crime/thriller film.

Why You Might Not Like It: As mentioned, while the cast is well put together, I didn't feel any of them were outstanding in the film. I think the biggest downfall will be that viewers might expect this movie to better than the product that they view, but it is honestly just a slightly above average film in the crime/thriller genre. There is nothing about the film that is terrible, but not really anything that makes it stand out either.
