Critic Reviews for Bad Country
A blandly executed action-thriller whose cast names (Matt Dillon, Willem Dafoe) and mild '80s Louisiana flavor offer only modest compensations for the story's workmanlike construction and routine twists.
[A] thoroughly routine, straight-to-video-reminiscent action thriller set in Louisiana.
Action fans need more than bullets and bodies. "Bad Country" is a disappointment.
Audience Reviews for Bad Country
The late Boondock Saints producer, Chris Brinker makes his directional debut with the thrilling and explosive true story. A stylish, riveting and exciting crime drama that explodes with shootouts and great performances all around. An intense and hard-edged action-packed thrill-ride. Its tightly knit and character driven. Its The Departed meets American Gangster. A tough, engaging and utterly powerful film. Matt Dillon and Willem Dafoe are at their best. Dillon hasnt been this good in a film for sometime. Dafoe is in his classic element of tough, compassionate and cool. Tom Berenger is terrific. A razor-sharp and frequently entertaining movie. True stories like this should be shared for their depth and sacrifice.
This crime drama also known as Whiskey Bay is starring Willem Dafoe, Matt Dillon, Amy Smart, and Tom Berenger. The film was mostly shot in Louisiana and when it was in post-production the director Chris Brinker died suddenly. This tragic event happened just before Brinker was to be presented with the Robert Smalls Indie Vision Award at the 7th annual Beaufort, South Carolina International Film Festival in February 2013. I am not sure if this was for the movie, but I'll say it wasn't. I could not see how this movie could be exceptional in anything! It was just an ordinary crime drama full with safe clichés for an ordinary viewer, and nothing which will be remembered for any longer than the duration time of the film. Good cast did enough for the pay check to be delivered safely, and didn't even try to reach any professional heights. If this was a meal, I would describe it that lacks salt. There was quantity, it even had presentation, but not real taste! Spices were not there, at least the right ones. It is good enough to kill time... just!
