Storyline

Joe Braven is a logging company owner who lives with his family in Canada. Joe's father, Linden, suffering from dementia, mistakes a woman in a bar for his wife, prompting a barroom brawl that lands Linden in the hospital. The family decides to take a break at their secluded log cabin, where they run into trouble from a drug dealer who wants to use Joe's business as a front for his cocaine operation.

Braven slow to deliver
3 February 2018 | by charlie-krausseSee all my reviews

Slow and dialogue lacking, there are reasons Braven went straight to On Demand. Jason Momoa stars as a logger (though he doesn't ever even log in even the opening scene) who is forced to defend his family versus evil drug runners. We assume the movie takes place somewhere in Alaska but they never really said. With the still backgrounds green screens, I assume it is Alaska.

Garrett Dillahunt is the "bad guy" drug runner of the film. We know that because he kills one of his own in his opening at a diner in front of people with no repercussions.

With obvious plot holes and questions throughout, Momoa does have some great fight and death scenes with some of the other bad guys, but at the end of the day, the movie is slow, low budget and with a running time of 94 minutes, it still had room to cut scenes from the film.
