Chaplin: So what do you think, Joe?
Joe Denton: [scoffs] I don't know. I dont think thats for me to say. A second chance? I mean, it's a nice idea, but...
Chaplin: But? How do you feel?
Joe Denton: Feel? I feel that I was a nightmare. I made terrible choices. I drove my family away. I... I hurt people. I didn't mean to, but there it is. And for all that... there's a hole inside me now. It hurts. I carry it.

Something about it works
1 July 2019 | by vovers1See all my reviews

It has all the makings of a pretty awfully put together B movie but something about it clicks and keeps one watching. Definitely no good guys anywhere in sight. Lots of pretty bad writing and mediocre plot direction. I was looking forward to a happier ending then we got - but I guess there far too many second chances in this mix.
