You could do a lot worse
Travolta’s the headliner, but Stephen Dorff, to my way of thinking, was the lead and most interesting character and did a tremendous job as the heavy.
The story wasn’t amazingly original and could even be called cliched, but it was interesting enough to keep me interested for a few hours which is more than I can say for a lot of the post-COVID films I’ve seen.
Brief synopsis: Travolta’s a Sheriff, Kevin Dillon and some dude I’ve never heard of are thieves who stole from the wrong bunch for the wrong reasons, and Dorff is the mob’s “avenger” sent to get revenge on the thieves.
Good acting all around, decent story, and overall entertaining.
Slow, Boring, and Pseudo-Philosophical Doggerel
First of all, it’s too long at 1h57m. Like twenty-seven minutes too long. Cut out the exposition showing what a family man the protagonist is. We don’t care. We don’t care that the sheriff has cancer, and we don’t need to have repeated shots of the protagonist thinking. Don’t ever show someone thinking in a film. The movie had tons of violence yet was slow and boring.
Let’s move on to things that didn’t make sense.
Why would Shelby think they wouldn’t kill him? This is a big part of the film so it’s an important question. Was he just a total idiot?
In the robbery, we can’t see the first guy who was shot, or who shot him.
Then, the guy recognizes the voice of one of the brothers so the brother shoots him with a shotgun at pointblank range…and the guy survives?
They make a lot of hay about race cars, yet the two robbers can get away from two hicks in a pick-up truck?
Travolta playing Tommy Lee Jones’s part from No Country for Old Men gets into a gun battle with the two guys in the pick-up. Then they stop shooting. He sees they are both dead. How? Did they have heart attacks?
We go to the two brothers, post-heist, and when we return to Travolta, the truck is on fire? How?
Stephen Dorff in the part of Chigurh form No Country for Old Men. He does the same thing as Chigurh with the coins, but he does it with the waitress and her tip. He has both brothers tied up on their front porch. He kills one then walks away. Why wouldn’t he have killed both of them?
Chigurh has the brother follow the doctor, telling him to pull alongside. Brother says he can’t, then we see the doctor crawling towards Chigurh. What?
The dialogue never rose about mumbo jumbo, stuff like, “We’re all heading the same way.” Yawn.
And of course, it ends in a bloodbath.
