Storyline

When Emma Gardner, a whip smart NYC reporter learns of her father's untimely death, she returns to her home town to find that the idyllic farming community of her childhood has been ravaged by drought and has become a place tormented by gangs and the ill effects of extreme poverty. She quickly figures out that her dad's accidental death was not accidental at all. The lists of possible suspects include overly zealous environmentalists, a local war lord and other farmers jealous of her father's outstanding reputation. Written by AnonymousB

Prey
21 March 2018 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

No typo there, both works in a way. This is run of the mill sort of. There are obstacles and drama, but you know where this is going and I wouldn't fault the actors too much, not because I think they are great, but just because the core material does not give them much to play around with. Again the story is very simple and easy to follow.

You may like that or you may be annoyed by it. Whatever the case, this is not rough around the edges even if it gets violent from time to time and a bit "dangerous". So a TV movie of the week and it knows what it is. Also there have been worse movies than this particular one. Also nice to see some of the actors like Jane Seymour. Other than that, just don't expect much
