    Powers Boothe and Matthew McConaughey cross swords in a tense game of cat-and-mouse while on the hunt for a mysterious serial killer known as "God's Hand". There's some backstory to go through at first in this offering, Bill Paxton's directorial debut, and therein is the real meat of this story about a simple blue collar man who believes that God wants him - and his young sons - to destroy demons. Fans of "The Usual Suspects" will recognise similar patterns in the technique and presentation but the central story is interesting enough to maintain interest.

    Bill Paxton and the guy from those lincoln car commercials? What an incredible duo. Hard not to feel blessed seeing 2 titans on the industry doing what they do best

    This movie had such an obvious Usual Suspects feeling that I pretty much knew what was going to happen about a 1/3 through the film. McConaughey was effective in the lead role and Bill Paxton did a great job playing an unhinged religious father. As far as if this is worth a watch? Game over, man. Game over.
