9/10---Great Movie One of my Favorites of 2016 (ignore the critics)
9 October 2016 | by bmorris-42085See all my reviews

INTRODUCTION: "Edge of Winter" is the most original thriller I've seen in awhile!!! The film is written by Rob Connolly and Kyle Mann. The film is directed by Rob Connolly. The film stars Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag from "Suicide Squad"), Tom Holland ("Captain America: Civil War"--- As Peter Parker AKA Spider-Man---Tom will soon reprise his role of Spidey in 2017 with "Spider-Man: Homecoming") and stars, young actor, Percy Hynds White. The story tells of a divorced father (Joel) he takes his kids (Tom and Percy) out to teach them how to shoot a gun and drive. But when the car drives off the road, the father and sons are now stuck in the cold wilderness and must find a way back to civilization... But slowly... The father goes CRAZY!!! Anyone can be pushed to the edge. There's nothing more dangerous than a fathers love.

GOOD: -Steller acting from Joel, Tom and Percy. -Believeable father and son relationships. -Suspence. -Character study of the father and how and why he goes crazy. -Setting. -Cinematography. -Writing. -Dialogue. -Smart characters (something you don't see much in movies now-n'-days). -Directing. -Plot. -Climax & ending. -Abrupt ending works. -Family drama / divorce aspect works and is handled with grace.

OKAY: -Pacing takes about 15 minutes before the actual movie starts. -Re-watchaility.

BAD: ~NOTHING AT ALL!!!!~

OVERALL: In conclusion, this film is a well crafted psychological thriller/survival/family drama. I highly recommend it for anyone a fan of these actors or any of the previously mentioned genres. GO WATCH IT!!!!

RATING: 9 out of 10 (It'd be a 10 if the pacing was a bit faster).

SCORES: 14/16 Good things. 2/16 Okay things. 0/116 Bad things.
