Starring: Brian Cox, Noel Fischer, Kyle Gallner, Shiloh Fernandes, Kim Dickens, Tom Sizemore
The peaceful country life of Avery Ludlow (Cox) becomes not so peaceful when 3 teenage boys attempt to rob him and eventually kill his dog while he was fishing. Danny (Fischer) shot Red at point-blank range while Harold (Gallner) and Peter (Fernandes) stood there laughing and doing nothing. Red was close to him and he swore revenge against them. He wanted them to regret what they did and get punished for doing what they shouldn't have done. Danny and Harold's father, Mr. McCormack (Sizemore) is a highly influential man because of which, both, the sheriff and the district attorney refuse to take any action against. Carrie (Dickens) a local newspaper reporter tries to help him out by reporting his story on TV but soon the channel editor too starts facing pressure from McCormack to stop broadcasting the story. Having nowhere to go, Ludlow takes the law in his own hands and decides to fight the McCormack's for what is right and what is wrong. Brian Cox's performance is worth giving him a golden statue and he very aptly fits the role. The movie cant be labeled as entirely boring but there is nothing exciting about it either. It's one of those movies that you cant find fault with and that you can easily forget about it soon after its over. A nice watch to pass some time without getting bored but not something you would talk about all your life.
Thumbs up: Brian Cox
Thumbs down: Has good scope for plot improvement
