Trivia

Thomas Jane's background story is similar to the role he played in the Punisher where after the death of his family (minus his wife) he starts drinking and contemplates on committing suicide. See more »

Goofs

It's tough to see, but when Carter loads the 20 gauge shotgun both times, the primer on the shell is already dimpled which indicates that the round has already been hit by a firing pin and therefore would not "go off" in the shotgun he loaded it into. See more »

Quotes

Sade: He who makes a beast of himself loses the pain of being a man.

It succeeds at it's purpose
12 March 2016 | by Nima Nimo KhalighiSee all my reviews

This movie's purpose isn't some crazy action movie. Nor is it an extremely complex story. I don't want to provide spoilers so I'll keep it simple. It is the story of 3 people with a damaged past that come together... and the experience of how they each face the given issue during that moment. And boy does it do it good. The actors did a great job, honestly. This simple movie actually did touch me. I enjoyed it. Near the end I actually started connecting with the characters and liked them. Just watch it. I don't know if I would go to the theaters for it but it is definitely enjoyable to watch at home. I'd say it should at least be a 7/10.

Hope this short review helps.
