A decent film about border crossing troubles
27 January 2002 | by nhpbobSee all my reviews

Seeing this film as a pre-screener for a film festival, I'm in no way connected to this film, which seems to be the suspicious case with the previous two comments, especially the one from Texas. Not because of where it was from, but in the virtual press release that it seems to be.

This film is a well made potboiler, with good performances all around, although my suspicions about the lead actress not necessarily being the best one they could find (I do freelance casting) were confirmed when i saw she co-wrote and co-produced the film. She's good, but I'm sure someone else could have been better. (Take note, Mr.Skin.com! She ain't shy.)

The story held me, and Brad Johnson is extremely good. Hey Hollywood, get him a new TV series or TNT western! And get Brian Bloom one, too. (An excellent villain.) But if you're gonna use Charlie Daniels on the soundtrack and give him a main credit, give him more than the title song. (If he wrote the score, it could have done with a little less Mexican guitar during the shootout scene. A little cliched.)

And how the heck did Adreienne Barbeau agree to such a nothing role? (I won't give it away why it's so short.) I just cast an indie film with star talent attached, and I'm amazed they got her to do such a small role. (Cowboy)hats off to the casting director!

If anyone sees this in a video store, it's a good 97 minutes to spend. If you see it at a film festival, you could do worse. If you see it at a theater, don't expect greatness. Just a well done good vs. evil film making you root for the hero, and hiss the bad guys.
