Goofs

What Kailey writes on her letter to Quinn inside the pick-up truck doesn't match what he reads on the paper. She writes 'she slept on top of the pool table' then folds it up and slips it in the envelope. But when Quinn reads it the following morning, he reads "she slept on top of the table for a few days and then was gone. She played lots of pool." He then proceeds to read something written on the back of the paper to which we had no knowledge of her ever writing since she just folded up the piece of paper and slipped it in the envelope without turning it over.

Average at times, but mostly very uninteresting
7 November 2013 | by jackasstrangeSee all my reviews

Turn the River can be described as a revenge drama. However, the theme of the film itself is not that interesting, certainly because it's a big cliché. However, this is the first film that i ever saw which take very seriously snook. I really don't give a dawn about that game, but anyways...it's a relatively 'original' idea. But apart from that, there is really nothing interesting about that film. The story concept, as i already mentioned is a cliché. And i really do not like low budget films which don't have nothing interesting to add. So maybe this is why i didn't like that much the B films. Rarely a Reservoir Dogs kind of B films appears. Back to the film, which explanations about the reasons of the revenge aren't really clever. It's a crucial element in any revenge film. All we'd know is that she wants to retrieve her son and escape with him. Not convincing. So. Yeah. That's not a worthy film, unless if you'd like snook, i suppose. 4.5/10
