Stephen Dorff at his best
9 December 2020 | by msgigi78See all my reviews

This was a great father son story. It almost seemed like even Stephen Dorff who is always great at playing villains had trouble grappling with the disgusting choices his character makes as a father in this film. The son played by Darren Mann does an excellent job playing a stoic son and I always love seeing Elizabeth Reaser and Donald Faison on screen. Shout-out to Karruche who also did an excellent job. This is a great movie to watch if you liked the show Kingdom with Frank Grillo.
