Bud Carter: South Louisiana in the 1980s was a different kind of time and place. Some called it lawless. But it wasn't. Others said we just got a certain way of doing things down here. But it ain't that either. Instead, I call it what it was. Hell with the lid off.

Definitely worth watching!
18 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Reason for my 10 out of 10 is cause i don't think the 5.7 (at the moment) is the rating what it's worth. for me this is a 7.5-8 at least....

Love the movies with Willam Dafoe, Matt Dillon. Both very good actors and in this movie they perform outstanding!

Perhaps director had to put a little more effort into the movies but all in all i believe it fits right into the time when it took place. It definitely gives you the feeling of going back into that time! It's for sure one i would recommend to others!

Action is of great performance with much "effects" although it's greatly filmed in "suspense" mode. Not to little, not to much!

Despite the bad reviews i am sure you will enjoy this movie!
