  • [It's] what happens when a director makes a movie based on what he imagines to be true, instead of what's actually so.

  • Martin internalizes everything, and Coburn must communicate only through pained looks. It's a tremendous performance.

  • Getting a lot of quality cinema out of a tight budget, Jacobs (Just One Night) takes some risks in the storytelling department that result in a film that encourages one to think long and hard about the subject of guns.

    September 26, 2002
  • The film comes closer to doing for firearms what "Jurassic Park 3" did for dinosaurs. It showed lots of 'em, had them kill a few people and made you wish it would end sooner than it did.

    All I can say about this film with out giving anything away is WOW. James Coburn played an excellent part, just a shame to see him in his elder years all crippled up with arthritis in his hands, watch closely and you will see it. This one shouldn't be missed. 3 1/2 stars
