All together a Brave and compelling effort.

Worth watching!!


Possibly uses every cliché in this genre and still plays like a poorly written country and western song.

The developing back story is compelling and very believable.

Bruce Dern phones one in for the paycheck and the rest of the cast is varying degrees of bad, from unwatchable to to just ok.

Making a political statement is nothing new for movies; however, if a filmmaker takes a stance on a controversial issue, the final product needs to be insightful and compelling in order to make a difference.

This is one of the worst movies in the last 25 years.

The dialogue is cliché and amateur.

I thought it told an engaging story with good, believable acting performances by most of the actors.
