    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Quite a slog, with most of the acting strictly amateurish save the veteran Ed Lauter as a fish and game inspector. show more

    Earnest to a fault, this tale of vengeance and retribution strives for Faulknerian pathos, but never rises above amateur theatrics. show more

    The tone fits the material and the performances are surprisingly measured, but Saitzyk's sappy pontifications on loss, redemption, and zealotry don't register as headily as they're meant to (every character gets at least one melodramatic speech), and the spirituality invoked feels about as sincere as the Christian who only attends Christmas mass. show more
