Goofs

On 00:52:00 when Nick finish phone conversation with his wife, he start driving the car and suddenly turns for 180 degrees. Two cars which were coming from opposite direction starting to brake and both of them made a famous movie tire squeal. Movie was filmed in 2007. and both cars as I know are looking at least made in 2000. or later. Looks silly that they don't have an ABS system. See more »

One of the best films i've seen this year!
31 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

I loved it!One of the best films i've seen this year.It had everything you could want.It had drama,suspense,action,thrills and more.It was a fun and tense movie to watch.After the Hume family is introduced there is a tragic,senseless killing and the action starts and is non stop.It is typical of what is happening too often these days,where the criminal justice system is failing the victims of crime and favors the criminal who has all the rights.The movie was also emotional and moving and each family member grieved in their own way. It is the kind of movie where you strongly root for the father who is about to avenge his favorite son and initiates his own version of justice against a gang of skinhead looking thugs but with a colored member who grew up with the 2 Darley brothers.And even though some parts were over the top and not always believable,it keeps you on the edge of your seat with excitement.You fully understand this grieving father's wrath and what drove him to the edge.I wonder though(had it been real)if the father would have reacted so strongly if it were his youngest son who was killed instead of golden boy! Towards the end it got surprising and sad but I guess a necessary thing considering the war the father started.And then the story takes a very unexpected twist at the end but,but a satisfying way to end it.The whole movie was very well acted by everyone especially Kevin Bacon who did a lot of his own stunts.I think it was one of his best performances.
