Quotes

[first lines]
Bud Carter: [voice over] South Louisiana in the 1980s was a different kind of time and place. Some called it lawless. But it wasn't. Others said we just got a certain way of doing things down here. But it ain't that either. Instead, I call it what it was. Hell with the lid off.

Hey! its a good movie
27 March 2014 | by ezekSee all my reviews

this is a great and entertainment movie, great actors and great locations, the tension is good and its strange that the movie didn't touch the theaters. I've seen worst movies at cinemas, don't know what happened w this one but the same dark hand that send this direct to DVD release, is the same hand that is doing bad publicity and ugly reviews here. Trust me, this is a GOOD action FLICK, only the mustaches disturbed me, Matt Dillon is good boy, don't lie to me u re bad guy Daffoe and Tom Berenger are back since Platoon, that was a great surprise. Its sad that after see the movie i realized that the director passed away, and there's no info or bio about a great director. Another dark hand?
