Slow moving and low budget treatment of revenge. Nothing new here to add to the subject.

The film is a here-and-now American potboiler and a stripped-down parable that can be appreciated by any culture. Full Review

Features a riveting performance by Michael Shannon as oldest son Son. He's definitely an actor to watch. Full Review
