Storyline

Jon Chryst, now 60, has been an outlaw for his entire adult life. After 30 years in isolation, the law has finally caught up to him. As he makes a final attempt to escape with his life, Jon reflects on the events that led him here. Jon's life begins on a farm in a seemingly wholesome Christian family. When Jon is 14, tragedy strikes, forcing him to flee his home and begin his life on the run. Shortly thereafter, Jon encounters Morris, a fellow outcast who takes Jon in and raises him like a son. For several years, Morris teaches Jon the necessities of adulthood- how to hunt, how to build, and how to rob small businesses. Their partnership ends abruptly, and Jon uses his new skills to pursue a life of crime. Over nearly a decade, Jon develops a powerful notoriety for his criminal activity. But everything changes when he meets Cat Donovan. Jon gives up his lifestyle and adopts a new identity to be with her. He proves his worth and is accepted into the Donovan family, leaving his ...

Enjoyable but maybe not memorable
1 December 2017 | by simeondrageSee all my reviews

My first review so maybe not going to be my best... I appreciated the different paces or the film and the cinematography but I'm not sure I got into the characters. Some stuck out as too clichéd.

The film kept me interested to the end, but did I really care what happened to the character in the end? Not really. Some emotional aspects seemed under-developed, possibly intentionally but this left me feeling a bit disconnected from the unfolding events.

Its a well put together story, playing with the chronology of scenes and colour, and keeps within the realms of realism which is refreshing, but didn't bring much new to the table or hit any strong notes. Better than average, a strong seven but lacks the punch of an 8.
