James Badge Dale
A former rodeo star, with a small time life, unknowingly starts a rapport with a young man who is responsible for the violence that has suddenly gripped his small town. Every character from his loved ones to his business patrons, plays a part in the unravelling of this community. Our aged hero must face his relationships of past and present to come up against this unpredictable predator.
There are two fundamental flaws to this film. It is really slow and never picks up pace, and the director seeks to fill the gaps by annoyingly loud mood music that serves no purpose whatsoever.
This is a great pity as it is a good story, the actors are excellent and the locations, whilst minimal are stunning. I think the film could have been better lit but that would have been no big thing until you add the lack of pace and monotone sound track. Did I say it was annoying? I mean really annoying.
