Goofs

Taylor's plan to storm the police station to kill Jimmy is needlessly risky. As Jimmy would've probably taken the fall for Harold's murder, a far easier and safer plan would've been to simply wait for Jimmy to go back to prison (where Taylor is implied to have influence) and kill him there.

Surprisingly good
8 November 2018 | by lizshotterSee all my reviews

I really liked this film, it had a great theme of family and how the characters deal with loss and conflict. It has an amazing ending and I hope that there will be more films as it has a lot of possibilities. James Franco is great at playing sleazy bad guys and he really delivers in this (with the exception of the "walkman story"..that was a bit uneccessary and a bit cringy). I loved the special effects, they were subtle in places and I was glad it wasn't a film bloated with cgi and was relevant to the story. The lead actor was brilliant and a promising young actor and who doesn't love a bit of Zoe kravitz in sparkly underwear? She plays a really good part in this but sometimes I tire of the " tart with a heart role", women are capable of so much more, but she played it well.
