- A fantastic performance by Vince Vaughn. Vaughn in recent years has been taking a dip into more dramatic roles such as “Hacksaw Ridge” or on the show “True Detective”. But here he’s on a whole other level, turning in the best performance of his career. Vaughn brings a lot to the character “Bradley Thomas”, from being extremely menacing & stone cold, to showing that he very much has a heart for the ones he loves.
- Good performances by Jennifer Carpenter & Udo Kier
- Solid direction by S. Craig Zahler. Zahler brings the 70s grindhouse out of this film to perfection. I would also applaud Zahler’s direction of the fight sequences in the film, most of which were done in one shot.
- A pretty nice screenplay by S. Craig Zahler. Zahler builds the “Bradley Thomas” character flawlessly as a man who hides his emotions and only cares about his family.
- A couple scenes that could be trimmed down a little.
