A just paroled white supremacist and his ruthless girlfriend kill a cop and take an African American family hostage. Meanwhile, Sobecki, the heavily-tattooed supremacist leader who oversees his criminal empire from behind bars, is not thrilled when he learns of his charge's screw-up. The patriarch of the family, an ornery ex-con himself, must rely on his wit and understanding of the racist mind to find a plan to free his family, but not before he confronts his own brand of bigotry and anger.Written by
Director Deon Taylor stated he spoke with the family that was taken hostage, and having an "incredible conversation" with them about everything that went down. He didn't have enough time to speak with Scully, who was on death row at the time, so he "couldn't get an entire story". Taylor said he "solely went with the family's perspective" because it was all he could do. See more »

Based on actual events (so a bit of licence has deffo been taken) this is about Garrett Tully (Joe Anderson) who has just done a fifteen year stretch for armed robbery. He is the sort of guy who has a modicum of intelligence all designed to back up his racist philosophy and more tattoos than a Colombian drugs cartel. He is also one of the White Supremacists and the brotherhood or what ever they want to call themselves, arrange for some cheap trailer park trash to pick him up on his release. This is Doreen played very convincingly by Dawn Olivieri ('American Hustle').
Then things go South very quickly when Tully guns down a cop. They then high tail it to a local house where an extended African American family live and they take them hostage.
Danny Glover plays the man of the hostage house here and he does so with a gravitas and vulnerability that actually raises this film up a level or two. It is an indie effort but does not suffer from that. Some of the police procedures are a bit questionable, but as ever are done for dramatic effect rather than accuracy. It has an air of menace and panic and for all its minor flaws remains a strong film with some very credit worthy performances and the direction is to be commended too. Not action packed either; much more psychological so if that is your thing then this will be one you may want to watch.
