Goofs

When Lydia tries to buy cigarettes at what appears to be a Walmart she is denied because she has no ID. State and federal law requires her to be 18 to purchase tobacco. The cashier still allows her to buy the 9mm ammunition because both federal law and state law have no minimum age restriction, or even an ID requirement, for that purchase. See more »

Nice Return for Mel.....
26 August 2016 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. The story was a little convenient (that's all I can say without spoiling), but I was pleasantly surprised. Mel seemed at the top of his game or very close to it. William H Macy was perfect and would have liked to see more of him. He is always a plus to the cast no matter what the movie. He really is a pleasure to watch. Erin Moriarty showed a good emotional range. The Villains were menacing enough and posed a valid threat. I appreciated the fact that this movie wasn't using nudity and a lot of sleazy humor. (one naked mannequin, or blowup doll in the background) Its nice to see a classic action/drama movie reminiscent of the 80s/90s. If you were ever a fan of Mel Gibson's, Definitely Check this one out. :-)
