Outside the forgotten desert mining town of Darwin, getaway driver Chooch O'Grady is stranded with a busted car and a bag of stolen cash. He's picked up by J.T., a predatory psychopath who murders Chooch and abruptly disposes of the body, leaving signs on the trail. J.T. and his meth-addicted boss, Archie, butt heads over the incident, but the real tension lies with Archie's girlfriend, Rebecca O'Grady. Her affair with J.T. contains false hope that he would be her ticket to freedom. Chooch's murder is all but forgotten until a quiet Stranger shows up looking for the money. Before he can leave behind the isolation that is Darwin, the Stranger must navigate the bizarre ghost town and bring its outlaw inhabitants to justice. Written by Amanda Coolong

Interesting plot, decent cinematography but, dreadful acting from most.
11 May 2010 | by CRGLancashireUKSee all my reviews

The plot is quite novel and the cinematography is decent however, the acting from most of the cast ranges from 'wooden' to 'over the top'.

'Archie', the sociopathic, long-haired lout is quite ridiculous and not at all convincing! His 'over the top' portrayal of the gang leader is, in my humble opinion, just laughable, as are the two 'Men in Black'.

'Crackhead Joe' was a half decent performance but, considering he was supposed to be of Native American decent, he must have hailed from Quebec as I'm sure he had a French accent.

The constant use of the word 'stranger' was reminiscent of 'B' westerns from the 50's and 60's. I started to count the number of times it was used but got fed-up by the time it reached c.20.

I watched it right to the end only to see if it improved or had a twist in the ending. Nope!

Don't waste 84 minutes.
