[first lines]
Paul: [lecturing] Most people think of hyenas as cowardly scavengers - waiting around impotently for left overs, while the stronger faster animals eat their fill. They're wrong. There's a lot more to them than that. Look at them.
[indicating video footage]
Paul: Hyenas are fierce hunters. They're all muscle and teeth. Their top speed in about 35 miles an hour.

The Cover Is A Lie - No Stephen Dorff Hero
16 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

I've never seen as blatant a lie as this in filmmaking. I can only imagine that the producers knew they could not legitimately advertise this movie on its on merit, so they actually took to staging a poster image that had nothing to do with the actual film.

IMDb, however, was more than honest in the plot summary. This is where our trusts must remain.

This is no spoiler because I'm telling you what's NOT in this film and what's not in this film is Stephen Dorff with a gun defending his girlfriend and daughter. Ever! This actually NEVER happens. Stephen Dorff's character doesn't even SEE a gun, let alone, hold one.

I'm actually baffled and appalled. Stephen Dorff, very poorly I might add, played the role of a dead-beat dad with the parenting skills of a dead tick.

This was NOT a Stephen Dorff film. It LITERALLY had nothing to do with Stephen Dorff. This was a Svetlana Metkina and Maisie Williams film. And who the heck are they?? No one good. Let me tell you, I tried to give them the benefit of not doubting unknown faces. But, the best either of these two girls had for them was their ability to shed tears. Other than that, the most flat and ill-fitted actors to be cast in an attempted thriller like this were in this movie.

AND DON'T GET ME STARTED ON THIS SCRIPT!! HA!! MY GOD IN HEAVEN! It's actually cringe-inducing. Seriously, you will cringe at how lame the dialogue is in this film. The actors, some of whom are reputable actors, couldn't even deliver these lines organically.

Just don't pay for it!! For the love of all that is sacred in this life, just don't spend your money.
