A fascinating lead character can't overcome the familiarity of this atmospheric low-budget thriller.

The movie's general weariness - nothing happy happens here - transitions from tasteful to overbearing.

Lands somewhere between a good novel and a deadly country song, all with the power to take hold and refuse to leave you be.

We Got This Covered

A Single Shot assembles an outstanding, mostly under-appreciated, cast and with them crafts a tense, disquieting gothic fable led by the always preeminent Sam Rockwell.

A Single Shot does not add up to anywhere near the sum of its parts, and as individually impressive as any of those parts might be (Rockwell), we are left with a film that, if not quite a Frankenstein's monster, is certainly patchworky.

When the plot kicks in, and people actually start talking to each other, the film loses most of its momentum, but it still has enough sections of terse, pointed physicality that the overriding sensation of brute, blunt force rarely lets up.

Hillbilly noir, great cast, dueling beards.

It's Rockwell - and Rockwell alone - who makes "A Single Shot" count.

An odd mix of beautifully bleak atmosphere and hammily mannered performances, "A Single Shot" is simultaneously understated and overpowering.

Both predictable and outlandish.

It's a small story, but it's tied into the part of America that's been affected by larger financial instability, the corruption of drugs, and the lack of education and opportunity.

"A Single Shot" is a singular pleasure, and worth seeking out.

I'd go as far as to rank A Single Shot among Sam Rockwell's Top 10 performances.

The plot is predictable, but it takes almost two hours to tell because everyone has to chop their way through so much atmosphere.

None of these characters, no matter how trashed-up for the down-market occasion, are believable.

Sam Rockwell is one of Hollywood's most underrated actors and he shows why that's the case again in A Single Shot, a rural, neo-noir thriller that slowly pulls the viewer under its veil of mystery.

The back story disappoints less for its convoluted nature than for its failure to create a convincing set of motivations for its characters.

There at the center of the film is Rockwell, as good an actor as there is working today.

So heavy on atmosphere that it's hard to breathe, this derivative drama sleepwalks through familiar story lines despite the efforts of a first-rate cast.

Sam Rockwell delivers another outstanding performance in this saturnine meditation on greed set in backwoods Appalachia.
