Goofs

When Pat fires the final shot (of 3 shots left), his handgun is left in the cocked position. Even if the gun were truly empty, the slide would not necessarily have to be in the eject mode (locked open). There are several reasons that a handgun slide could remain forward in the "cocked position" after the last round is fired and it is empty. Certain parts of the gun could have been replaced with aftermarket parts, or an aftermarket magazine could be used, both of which may not engage the "last shot hold open" feature. Also, certain grips on the gun would cause the slide release to be depressed while firing, possibly due to poor technique, which would prevent the slide from remaining open after the last round has been fired.

A Brilliantly compelling thriller
25 September 2016 | by t-dooley-69-386916See all my reviews

A punk band are on tour trying to build up a following and get the 'vibe' going. It is going down like a pork pie at a bar mitzvah and then they get offered an actual paying gig; only it is out in the wilds of the Pacific North west of America. On arrival it looks a bit down market to be honest.

Then they sort of realise that they might be playing to some sort of white supremacists or something and yet decide to carry on – after all they are guaranteed a pay day. Then they stumble into a room where a crime has been committed. Now they are the only non locals to have seen it and all of a sudden they go from being guests to being in deep trouble.

Now I thought this was going to be a slasher horror type and so was a bit non plussed at the thought. However, it is a rollicking and very tense thriller. There are some superb performances here too. Macon Blair as the well meaning MC is superb – but he is always excellent and Patrick 'beam me up Scotty' Stewart (I know he doesn't use that line) is deliciously ambiguous. This is a case of ordinary people having to do extraordinary things and it all hangs together really well – so an easy one to recommend.
