Bad Country Reviews

  • Dec 04, 2020

    A cop played by Willem Dafoe thinks the guys he busted are part of a much bigger picture and turns his arrest into an opportunity for a chance at a Louisiana crime syndicate. 
Pretty typical crime thriller, but up a notch due to performances from Dafoe and Matt Dillon. 
Amy Smart is criminally underused in this film. 
Pretty decent watch especially for fans of this genre.

    This movie should be called Bad Movie. Horrible script writing. Sloppy editing. Awkward pacing. The movie is about a convict (played by a porn mutton-chopped Matt Dillon) who agrees to help take down his old boss (Tom Berringer) and his criminal syndicate in exchange for his wife (played by Amy Smart who must have been desperate for a $2000 pay day) and baby’s protection. On its surface it sounds like a solid premise, but you will find yourself groaning at the tired script of cliches, the overreacting of the normally brilliant Willem DaFoe, and the hokey and comical Cajun impression brutally performed by Berringer. You’ll even see henchmen in what appears to be bad wigs and fake mustaches during a gunfight in the middle of the movie. This one is a stinker. Avoid.

    It was good. Lots of action, lots of really good acting. It was slow moving at times, but never boring. Watch it...

    Crime movie, based on a true story, with a (mostly) great cast. The movie was filmed in Southeast Louisiana, where the actual events took place, giving it an authentic feel, despite Tom Berenger's embarrassing attempt at a cajun accent. Props to the 1980's cars and mustaches, which really do take you back 30 years. Also, the social/political atmosphere of the deep south, in the 80's is accurately portrayed, in the film. The characters are well written and performed- with the exception of Berenger's character, who is supposed to be a corrupt southern politician, but might as well be the Colonel from the KFC commercials. Overall, I enjoyed and recommend the movie.

    Um policial consegue um informante que vai desmantelar uma grande quadrilha, porém o promotor acaba atrasando seu lado e tudo muda quando o informante afirma que possui uma lista onde o procurador é o segundo nela para ser morto... No final a mulher do informante que estava sob proteção morre e ele vai matar todos os integrantes da quadrilha, inclusive o chefão....

    I really wanted to rinse my eyeballs with industrial bleach after watching this complete pile of proverbial. My wife was lucky she fell asleep near the end. The moustaches are fabulous but the film itself is just dire..

    A real-life story that should make you interested unless you are a critic.

    They should call this "Bad Movie" .... When the film was in post-production, the director died. I presume he died of embarrassment

    a good crime-action flick, not much of an oscar material, but it has a good plot.
