My Comments:

I wanted to like this movie, but it left a very bad taste in my mouth. Sam Raimi, who has made the films Evil Deadand Army of Darkness, and who has had great success on television with Hercules, the Legendary Journeys and Xena, Warrior Princess, had a lot going for him. In his attempt to make a serious movie, there were moments in the film that hinted at a better story than what was actually filmed. Good performances by Bridget Fonda, Bill Paxton, and Billy Bob Thorton can't salvage the depressing script.



Plot Spoilers below!








This movie is a death spiral all the way down. Characters you may have sympathy for, ruin that trust by the time the credits roll. You might want to see it on cable, if it ever gets there.
