Evan values family above all else, and anyone who gets between him, his wife, and newborn son learns that the hard way. But when it comes to violent tendencies, it seems the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Seann William Scott,
A young man from Philadelphia is grappling with the sins of his past as he buries a body far from the city in an old Pennsylvania logging plot. In the midst of digging a shallow grave, a tree falls, injuring him and pinning him to the ground. A nearby bow hunter, startled, drops his bow and runs towards the sound of the fallen tree. The hunter is unable to move the massive tree, or free the city boy. Just as the hunter is leaving to find help, he stumbles across the covered body. The city boy pulls a gun on the hunter, and they are locked in a standoff, alone in the middle of the woods.
It's an OK, movie. I watched via Amazon Prime, so I was only out my time for watching. Worth seeing if you don't have to pay and you don't have anything else to do, or if you want to get out of the 'honey- do' list. A few things I noticed that I couldn't get past.
1. The tree that fell on the city boy was clean cut and it was supposed to have just fallen. At least attempt to make it look like it fell on it's own.
2. Out of all the trees in the woods this takes place in, city boy happens to be next to the one that falls. Umm ..... I've got a hard time with this point.
3. After the tree fell, city boy tried to dig out his leg from under the tree with a rock and a stick, yet he brought a shovel to bury the man he shot. Really?? Just have the hunter dig your leg out from under the tree with the shovel. I guess if he would have done that, it would have been a short movie.
The dialog between the 2 was decent. City life vs. Country life. Growing up in the city vs. Growing up in the country. My beliefs vs.your beliefs. Should the hunter run and risk being shot, and if city boy shoots the hunter then he's stuck under the tree with no one to help in sight. Interesting.
A movie needs to make me believe that the events really happened for me to enjoy it or get something out of it. Because of the 3 points above, my opinion is that the events could have and should have occurred differently. Like I said, it was an OK movie, but it could have been better.
