Very entertaining movie, well-written and the acting was great. Has an unlikely hero, which is a bonus! We gave it a 7!

I like it when a movie has a nice script with good acting. This movie has it and was really enjoyable to watch.

Many parallels with some twists of characters in "The Big Sleep": street smart Marlowe, rich crusty old man and shady characters who preyed on young women.

Octavia Spencer is this guys sister, WHAT and her husband is Anthony Anderson. Otherwise the guy is an ex-cop that drink his way through life and that can't let go.

Not as enthusiastic as some of the reviewers of this indie film, but it is worth a watch. Our hero is certainly flawed, and I had a hard time believing that in his current condition, he could solve the crime of the murdered woman he happened to find by the side of the road after waking up from a drunken bender, but you have to root for him! Robert Forster adds a bit of gravitas as the murdered girl's grandpa, but his role is minimal at best. Has a "western noir" feel, which is an interesting mix among recent films.

I second the first review! It is an involved plot with quite a milieu of actors and actresses that lend a twist along the story. It will grip you. Watch it.

Pretty decent indie film noir that has more twists and turns than a pretzel. The seedy protaganist is so flawed that you can not help but root for him. Octavia Spencer---who has risen to become one of the finest actresses of the current age adds legitimacy to this movie--and the seedy peeps who inhabit this story make this interesting and entertaining. View the trailer and decide if you would view it. I liked it.

Humor, wit and bravado with a brilliant cast! Loved every minute from beginning to end.

Wow! What wonderful surprise. A terrific movie with a great story with some excellent actors. The gunfight at the end felt like a Wild West face off. I liked all the actors. Some memorable moments. This movie is a hidden gem.

Being a bartender, you see a lot of shit. You learn a lot of shit, too. Useless knowledge most of the time, but once in a while, you get a gem. Let me give you an example. I bet you don't know that our law enforcement holds
a lot of pride in the national bird. Now that makes sense, if you consider that the state's fowl is the valley quail. Let me tell you, there's nothing tough about a quail, and you sure as hell wouldn't want to put that on your uniform. Now, you see, the top of your badge, there's supposed to be an eagle. A bald eagle, the national bird. Now, what you got there looks more like a hawk, which is a hell of a bird, but it ain't no bald eagle. So, I'm guessing that that badge was made in, uh, Tijuana by a counterfeiter
who didn't know the difference between a chicken and chicken shzt.

Who's that, your wife?
-That's my sister.
Like a sister-sister or that's your sister?
-I was adopted.
How'd that work?
-Compared to starving and getting the shxt getting kicked out of me by a couple of junkies, I thought it was pretty great.
===
My granddaughter's been dead a week. Police are no longer answering my phone calls. And some son of a bitch is getting away with murder. You know, to them, she is just another toe tag. I want this guy. I wanna chain him to the back of my Bentley and I wanna drag him around a little.

How old are you?
-How old do you want me to be?

Tell me about yourself.
-Okay. What would you like to know?
You can start with why you think you're the best person for the job.
-Well... I don't take any shxt.
===
Well, I have a problem with alcohol.
-I see.
Most mornings, I'm about as worthless as a park bench in hell. I usually don't start thinking straight until I get a couple cold ones in me. After that, I wouldn't recommend me operating any heavy machinery, if you get where I'm going.
===
These motherfxckers murdered two of my girls.
-You must've taken quite a loss.
Oh, you think this is business, huh?
-I see what you did to my granddaughter.
You know, I found her living on the street, rolling tricks for dime bags. I raised her rate, gave her a roof. You wanna get all mystical and start searching for answers and shxt, maybe you ought to think about what y'all did.
