excellent
20 January 2016 | by odette-521-562860See all my reviews

Simple theme... but the movie was gripping and perfectly executed (pardon the pun). Laurence Fishburne was brilliant lead.... carried the movie on his shoulders from start to finish and Thomas Jane supporting actor.. an ideal partnership. Fishburne commands your full attention.

This must be a very low budget movie... 99% set in a house.. and this is proof that when you have good actors and a good producer.. you have a winner.

From a purely visual point of view, the film is reminiscent of a spaghetti western. Vaguely monochrome. Hence, whoever came up with putting the child actress Ella Ballentine, in a simple, bright red, dress really knew what they were doing. The contrast was worked perfectly.

Great Film... worth watching. Enjoyed it tremendously.
