Trivia

Chris is displeased because the weapons are not as "ordered", but "AR70s". In fact the folding stocks identify them as a version made by Beretta for Special Forces use - the SC70. See more »

Goofs

The film is set in the 1970's but Justine uses a Taurus Model 85 revolver which was not manufactured until 1985. See more »

flat-lining, sparse action flop with no scene changes
28 April 2017 | by ashleybmeyerSee all my reviews

Nine people with terrible aim shoot at concrete without expressing emotion for 90 minutes. You might call this an arthaus gore shootout but with too much john Denver. Mind-numbingly boring cinematography and editing, and as far as I can tell the only lens they used was mid-century misogyny. Great cast, but bad enough to be a cult classic in 10 years maybe?
