A Single Shot Reviews
About the only reason I even watched the film was because of Rockwell, who I enjoyed as the disgusting creep in The Green Mile, President of the Galaxy in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and as Rick in 13 Moons. But even his skills couldn't pull this one out of the doldrums.
The story line was not that intriguing and fit to form becoming cliche once a few pieces of the puzzle fell in place. OK, but nothing to write home about. A good one time view and then into the forgettable dust bin. Sorry Sammy.
"A Single Shot" is an atmospheric psychological thriller shot in a subtle but engaging way with Sam Rockwell breathing life into the disillusioned John. The storyline is hardly something new under the sun with a backwoods cat and mouse chase leading up to a buildup and an ambiguous bleak ending. A touch and a hint to the Coen brothers. Thereīs a reasonably ok mix of solid acting, visuals and realism, but "A Single Shot" has also your stereotypical redneck set up that feels done and quite tiring. Itīs not a bad movie, but neither a film you will re-see or really remember for that matter.
Rockwell did a good performance, some scenes were good and gave me a little thrill, but overal it was 50%
