Storyline

A decorated firefighter has his wife and son leave him because of his violent tendencies, including playing a game of Russian Roulette with his wife. Only trouble is he believes that the loving neighbor couple and their two children are to blame for them leaving by filling his wife's head with nonsense. He then sets out to discipline the family for their failings. But when the couple reports him to the police, the police will not believe the couple because of the fireman's status in the community. Things escalate until he kills a repairman, then the police and finally launches a totally terroristic attack on the family including again playing Russian Roulette with them. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Bad day for acting...
8 June 2018 | by paulclaassenSee all my reviews

When I watched this about 20 years ago, I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was engraved in my mind as a very good movie. However, now that I'm older and wiser and have seen so many films, nothing about this film really makes sense. Nothing is credible. Charlie Sheen is overacting. I mean, he is just trying so hard to be good that he's actually bad. Mare Winningham is unintentionally funny instead of serious. The only mention-able good acting was from David Andrews. Everything that happens in this film happens for sensation only, and is not realistic. It was not entirely a bad film, but it certainly was not entirely a good film.
