Not since Pippi Longstockings have a sat through a more dreadful movie. HORRID. Sad because the two lead actors have potential to do some very good work. I've seen high school plays in rural North Dakota that had more of a budget than this movie. The same quarter mile stretch of road used over and over again from different angles. Prop guns were horrible, you could see the plugs in the barrels half the time, the other half of the time they were so clearly stage props they looked like they were stolen from a college theater department. The "special effects" of gunfire and bullets supposedly striking objects were so sad. I love the scene with the prison super imposed on a mountain range....laughable if it weren't so sad. Monster power line towers also visible in a number of scenes...in one, it is almost like the camera man realized it and just panned the camera slightly to get it out of frame. Last but certainly not least, the opening scene suggests that the story was taking place in Louisiana and it was clearly a totally different climate and geography...looked like California. Repetitive use of "antiqued" photos of the actors and different buildings that were so obviously "movie set" buildings....stop me or I'll go on forever.
Don't waste your time...but if there is an agent out there, a producer with some juice and a director worth his or her salt...snatch up these two lead actors and give them a little mentoring.
