"When Jamie is shooting at Frank, he shoots at Frank seven times! There isn't a seven shot revolver." A common mistake is to believe there are only 6 round revolvers. Likely, in this case, it is a goof but 7 and 8 round have become more common including .357/.38SPC with there being 10 Rnd revolvers as well. See more »

Survived The Night but The night could've been better
22 May 2020 | by justinleblanc59See all my reviews

Saw the trailer and it looked mediocre, but I thought \hey lets see what Bruce Willis has been up to' and rented the film on demand.

The plot is very simple, which takes us through two brothers on the run to escape to Mexico after stealing loads of cash but are suddenly stopped in their tracks when one of the brothers gets shot in the leg and need medical assistance.

The vigilante's find a clinic in the middle of nowhere and follow the doctor ( Chad Michael Murray) back to his father's house (Bruce Willis) where the doc and his wife/daughter are staying after a accidental death lawsuit cased cause Rich and his family to leave the city.

So the Vigilante's follow the Doc home and eventually take hold of the family and force the doc to fix his brother's leg but the the family being take hostage wont go down without a fight.

There, thats my synopsis onto the review:

The film right off the bat seems low budget and the acting on the brother's stand point seems very subpar, i however must tell you that actor - Shea Buckner - plays a very compelling and convincing idiot-psychotic brother but unfortunately not much was given for him to work with as the dialogue was very limited, but I did like his approach.

The story was simple, and some of the gunshot wounded scenes were pretty nice and enjoye dthose, but as the chase got on the story became a tad dull and he ultimate conclusion ended weirdly - I was left feeling Just Okay with the film. It wasn't super bad and it just wasn't super good, or even great for that matter.

Bruce Willis's role as the father was good, I mean he did good for what his role was, i felt the tension of the bond between father and son, and it worked - I would like to see Willis and Shea Buckner come together in more defined film with a more compelling storyline.

  • simple story
  • not the greatest dialogue
  • felt the relationship between both Brothers and the father son bond
  • the story became dull towards the end

Review: 2.8 / 5 or 5 /10 - liked the story but the dialogue fell flat - chemistry was there, but the story as well as the conclusion was dull - wasn't bad, but wasn't great.
