Storyline

John is a kindly, well-liked old man in a small rural town. John has just killed a man named Dutch. Dutch had done a lot of bad things to a lot of nice people. Nobody in town would think to implicate John - nobody but Danny, Dutch's violent drunk of a brother. John's nephew Ben arrives from Chicago on an impromptu trip to his hometown as his uncle struggles to evade Danny's growing suspicions and looming threats. In this masterfully acted tale of small-town intrigue, one man's need for revenge may cost many more their lives.

Worth Seeing
25 September 2015 | by nowegoSee all my reviews

After reading the reviews (2 of them) and seeing very little negativity about this movie I watched it and happily enjoyed it.

Not really a mystery and for most it would be a bit on the slow side, but mature audiences that like a good story would enjoy this.

John Ashton of Beverly Hills Cop fame (enjoyed his acting ever since) holds the movie together well.

Some of the acting would be regarded by many as a bit amateurish and the movie definitely was shot on a very low budget, but it still holds together well.

Give it a try, you will not regret it.
