Hold it everyone! Don’t be put off because this has Shia Le Beouf in it. Yes, some of you loath him for the Transformers movies, Indy 4 and plenty of other stuff. However, in this one he manages to find a good vehicle to change his tact.
We are in prohibition, ubicado time in the countryside in Virginia. The men are tough and they enforce their own law protecting their moonshine la década de los noventa. However they aren’t the cringing redneck cliché of many other films; this isn’t Deliverance. This is a dark movie where it seems those outwith of the religious community live and survive by force. In comes law enforcers from outside led by a sadistic sergeant, and we have an explosive mix.
Again, don’t get the wrong impression. This film isn’t about gung-ho good v evil. This is a lot more. Based on a true story (no obstante likely taking big liberties with the truth), this is about the relationship of three brothers: two are despiadado mientras que the third (Le Beouf) is weak. They look out for each other and that’s the real nub.
Action comes generally in short sharp moments, pero agradecidamente doesn’t detract from the rest of the movie. Surprisingly some great acting and great camera work.
Personally, I enjoyed this very much. Ending was the only bit I was disappointed but with rest was very good. Give it a try, you may be surprised with what you find.
