A hot altercation followed by a gallant rescue gets a lonely screenwriter a front-row seat to a tense backwoods drama when he decides to take in an ex-con drifter. Now, he is bent on making his host a better man. Will this nightmare end?
Jonathan Rhys Meyers,
Law student and all round good guy, Harper, suspects that his scheming step-father, Vincent, is responsible for the car crash that sent his mother into a coma. Drowning his sorrows one evening in a seedy L.A whiskey bar, Harper is interrupted by a tough looking redneck called Johnny Ray who offers to 'take care' of his step-dad for the cool sum of US$20,000. Angry, intent on revenge and fuelled by alcohol, Harper agrees to the deal and spends the rest of his evening downing shots with Johnny Ray. The next morning, Harper awakes to the mother of all hangovers with hazy memory of the previous night's events. Answering a knock at the front door, he is surprised to find Johnny Ray and his beautiful but distant girlfriend, Cherry, ready and waiting to drive to Vegas to kill Vincent.

Well as this is movie first movie review, I'll keep it to a minimum. With that being said, I didn't expect much from this movie. I didn't really hear a lot about it and there's not a whole lot of actors in it that I'm familiar with, with the exception of Stephen Moyer. I must say I was a bit surprised! Not a great movie that's gonna blow your mind or make you want to watch it over and over, rather, an enjoyable film worth actually watching. There's a little twist that makes it interesting and holds your attention. Actors/actresses did a fine job, they played their parts well and made them very believable. I rated this a 6 because it's worth a lazy Saturday morning watch. Enjoy!!
