When Will was teaching son Danny how to fire his rifle, he was careful to explain that the safety was on when he gave the weapon to Danny, but the boy aimed it at the tin can targets and fired it anyway, without visibly switching off the safety. See more »
The kid is being bullied. Logically, his dad takes him on a hunting trip, spinning the various virtues of killing animals. It takes courage to hunt, the dad says, and what could be more courageous than shooting a deer from a distance with the telescopic rifle? He needs to learn to stand up to himself, the dad says, and apparently shooting animals is the best way to learn that, and to avoid being bullied.
The action sequences are OK.
The movies does not suffer from excessive logic.
