Storyline

Jerry Bines is trying to live down a past that includes killing a man (in self-defence), theft and an alcoholic, abusive father. He sees hope for redemption by providing life-giving bone marrow to his leukemia-stricken son. But time is running out because an escaped killer (Gary Percy Rils) is coming to town to exact revenge for ancient sins. And like the old buck in a backwoods tale he spins for his kid, Bines must stop running and turn to face his hunter. Written by Anonymous

Awesome Heartbreaking Movie
17 December 2003 | by gazeboSee all my reviews

At first I didn't want to watch this film, (not exactly my cup of tea) but there was such good reviews on this film that I made myself watch it. I expected to be both moved and heartbroken.

I was.

I teared up at the ending because I felt so bad for Jerry Bines. Just goes to show you, if you are not careful, you can easily screw up your life and sometimes there is no turning back. Jerry knew that there was no turning back for him, he had to face the consequences of his long ago actions, and he faces his enemy with great courage until the bitter end.

This was a hard film to sit through, it was so damn depressing. But Callum Keith Rennie's moving performance as Jerry Bines made me continue watching. This guy is such a terrific actor. There's something about watching this man act that hits me in the gut everytime.

This film is worth viewing. I give this movie a "B+".
