What begins as a hopeful journey to seek a better life becomes a harrowing and primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante chases a group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous U.S.-Mexican border. In the harsh, unforgiving desert terrain, the odds are stacked firmly against them as they continuously discover there's nowhere to hide from the Patriotic American trying to prevent more illegal immigrants from entering into the United States. Written by
Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lew Temple have appeared in The Walking Dead (2010). Temple played inmate Axel back in the prison episodes in season three, and Morgan plays Negan in season six and beyond. See more »
Given his age, his level of experience, the high temperature of the day and the presence of Border Patrol agents where he's shooting, it's doubtful that Sam would risk drinking Jim Beam (bourbon) while hunting. Alcohol dehydrates people, and the very last thing a person wants to be in the desert is dehydrated. See more »
JDM fans will want to watch this to prepare for TWD!
This was a surprisingly good movie! Unlike other reviewers, I did not
see the "politics" in the movie at all. The fact that the gunman was
killing illegals was just part of the story line. The same guy could
have been killing sorority girls and not Hispanics, and the plot would
have been: serial killer attacks sorority girls. It is basically the
same plot and story line of any "slasher movie"--only in this one, JDM
uses .300 WinMag and not a butcher knife.
I thought the movie was well acted by Jeffery Dean Morgan and Gael
Garcia as the protagonists. The dialogue was insipid at times, but the
overall tension created by Morgan's character and more so, by Tracker,
his dog, was excellent.
If you want to get ready for Negan in The Walking Dead (also played by
Jeffery Dean) then I recommend you watch Desirio as a warm-up.
