A psychiatrist faces his past, present and future when he finds himself involved in the treatment of a young man recently released from prison for a murder committed when the boy was just 11 years old.
The inside story of the planning, execution, rousing aftermath, and ultimate downfall of the kidnappers of beer tycoon Alfred "Freddy" Heineken in 1983, which resulted in the largest ransom ever paid for an individual.
A modern fable set against the rugged backdrop of a Pacific Northwest logging community, this is the story of Lillian (Julia Stiles), a young woman newly returned to her hometown who becomes the subject of harassment by a man named Blackway (Ray Liotta), an ex-cop turned violent crime lord who operates with impunity in this small community on the edge of the wilderness. Forsaken by the local townspeople, advised by Sheriff Wingate (Dale Wilson) to leave town, Lillian decides instead to take a stand against her sociopathic stalker, and enlists the help of an ex-logger Lester (Sir Anthony Hopkins) and his laconic young sidekick Nate (Alexander Ludwig), the only two men in town brave enough, or crazy enough, to go with her, and go up against Blackway.Written by
The name "Blackway" is said in this movie sixty-six times. See more »
When Lester was shot in the back with the high-power hunting rifle he would have dropped dead in his tracks with a hole large enough to put your fist in. I have shot many big game and there is a huge hole where the bullet departs the chest cavity. See more »
Cancer, car wreck, drugs, dope. Suicide. Relatives. You name it, it's all... it's always going to be something. It's all in the game... Yeah. None of us gets out of this life without some bad stuff comes looking for us. Keep our heads down, hope it passes us by. Or we can, you know, just do what we're doing now.
We're gonna meet the son of a bitch, aren't we? Head to head, face to face.

Better than many blockbusters. The plot is very good 9 *
I don't get the bad reviews...it's a good plot, survival of the fittest. I think it's a film worth seeing just because of the plot. It felt like something real that actually happens. Sometimes you can't count on the authorities to help you because they just don't care and this film portraits that.
It's not the best film of your life but it's better than a lot of films nowadays. At least I didn't fall asleep like I did on Avengers or was it Captain America? Maybe it was Spider man or Iron man, not sure they all look the same. (PS: I never payed for these films, always got free tickets).
