This is a great little movie. The small cast portray their characters beautifully. The story is simple but perfectly executed. No gimmicks just good theatre. Get a glass of wine, sit back and enjoy this nicely crafted thriller.

As a fan of Thomas Jane and Lawrence Fishburne, I wanted to like this movie. However, what seemed to be pitched as a battle of wits turned into an hour and half screaming match between the two actors.
The movie is basically Jane attempting to keep a little girl from being killed by Fishburne with his last shotgun shell. The two of them spend the whole movie yelling insults and cursing at each other, with very little happening in between. The script tries to add some story by telling giving Jane's character a tragic backstory, but it really doesn't do much to keep the plot moving.
The best part of the movie is the little girl. Ella Ballentine has some definite talent, and finding out what happens to her is the only reason to finish watching the movie. This young actor adds a weariness and "old soul" quality to her character that makes her seem wiser beyond her years.
While pitched as a battle of wits, this is more of a pissing contest between two stubborn men. If that's your thing, then go for it.
Suspenseful, emotional thriller with amazing direction and performances. Cool looking too. Loved it!
The music was great also. Both the background music and the song at the end.
Short and sweet too. I find most movies too long and slow, but this was tight as a drum. It kept me engaged and on the edge of my seat the whole time.
The three main actors were very strong. Laurence Fishburne like you've never seen him. Thomas Jane and the girl bring a tear to your eye.
I found the whole thing very moving and heartfelt, which surprised me for what I expected to be just a suspense thriller. But it was so much more.
