A grieving veteran must protect a young girl who stumbled into his isolated farmhouse after she witnessed a brutal murder. The assassin she was fleeing then plays a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with the man and girl trapped inside the house.

Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
I wanted this move to be so much better than it actually was. The premise is good, the setting is intriguing, and both Laurence Fishburne and Thomas Jane have done great work elsewhere; but this film just doesn’t work for me. The biggest setbacks are a clunky script, weak characters and bad pacing.

Final Grade: D
