Storyline

Josh and Dena, two young environmental activists, are planning a large scale act to force the world to think about what they're doing to the environment. They pull in Harmon, a man with a sketchy past, to help them pull off their big plan. However, unforeseen consequences bring a whole host of guilt, paranoia and other problems, and their ultimate act will change themselves more than the world around them. Written by Anne Campbell

Goofs

In the opening scenes of the film, Josh and Dena are shown at Lake of the Woods, which is in southern Oregon. Later in the film, when they are heading to the lake with the boat, they mention that they will have to put in "upstream at Lake of the Woods". The following morning, Josh asks what is going on as people are reading the news, and it is said that "Someone blew up Green Peter Dam last night", and later when Josh is at the library, the news article mentions Green Peter Dam, and the Santiam River, which Green Peter Dam impounds to form Green Peter Lake. Green Peter Dam is outside of Sweet Home, and is over 100 miles from Lake of the Woods. See more »

Acting is good but the movie was really lacking something to make an impact on me. Not terrible but slow and methodical.
28 August 2014 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"One person, that's all it takes." Josh (Eisenberg) and Dena (Fanning) are young environmentalists who are sick of watching the planet get destroyed. Along with a man named Harmon they come up with a plan to blow up a hydro-electric dam as a protest to what is happening. There are a few bumps but for the most part things go according to plan. When the papers the next day report something unexpected the three protesters become scared and trust is challenged. I wasn't sure what to expect from this at all but I was hoping for a movie like The East. That movie was very tense and I really enjoyed it, kinda like an Erin Brokovich on steroids. This one was not like that. On the other hand though I think this one is more realistic. This one deals with three people who are not affiliated with any organization who try to make a big statement but it doesn't go has planned. No one is a loud mouth or draws attention to themselves which is good for what they are doing, but not for a movie. This is very slow and has very little dialog. The movie isn't bad but never quite gets as tense and suspenseful as needed. Acting is good but the movie was really lacking something to make an impact on me. Overall, not terrible but slow and methodical. Almost too slow to stay focused on. I give this a B-.
