Movie Info

Siblings Addison (Eric Bana) and Liza (Olivia Wilde) are on the run from a casino heist gone wrong. When a car accident leaves their wheel man and a state trooper dead, they split up and make a run for the Canadian border in the worst of circumstances - a near whiteout blizzard. While Addison heads cross-country, creating mayhem in his wake, Liza is picked up by ex-boxer Jay (Charlie Hunnam), en-route for a Thanksgiving homecoming with his parents, June (Sissy Spacek) and retired sheriff Chet (Kris Kristofferson). It's there the siblings are reunited in a terse and thrilling showdown that pushes the bonds of family to the limit. -- (C) Magnolia

    Very cool. I like the storytelling here, as well as the excellent character development and acting. Check this one out if you're looking for some thrills.

    Despite moments of impressive cinematography, this film is as bland and uninteresting as the snowy wasteland it's set in. Despite what should be a strong cast, the actors are not utilized to their potential and the whole experience is rather hum-drum. The film's decent, but not particularly interesting in any significant way. I wish I could wait for the spring thaw to see if any life might have sprouted in Kristofferson's salty patriarch character, but alas, I doubt any of us would make it that long.

    This film took me pleasantly by surprised. I wasn't expecting much from the trailer. The film is kind of like a film noir or even a western. It reminded me of movies like A Perfect World, The Lookout, A Simple Plan, The Last Seduction just to name a few. I loved the style and look of the film. What makes the film work for me is the performances. Olivia Wilde shines here. She is kind of like the femme fatale here. She reminded me a lot of Linda Fiorentino. Eric Bana is great as the villain here. I thought Charlie Hunnam was better here than in Pacific Rim. He reminds me a little of Chris Hemmsworth. Kate Mara is very good here. She reminded me a little bit of Amy Adams. I definitely recommend this film.
