Despite its fissures in tone and technique, Godspeed occasionally plays like a sturdy indie outpost of revenge cinema.
Opens tentatively but ends confidently with a climax that's bloody enough to jolt but not enough to sicken -- a trick that too many directors have yet to master.
The location -- Sarah Palin's beautiful old stomping ground of Wasilla, Alaska -- is the main attraction in Robert Saitzyk's talky and overwrought melodrama.
Earnest to a fault, this tale of vengeance and retribution strives for Faulknerian pathos, but never rises above amateur theatrics.
Saitzyk's sappy pontifications on loss, redemption, and zealotry don't register as headily as they're meant to, and the spirituality invoked feels about as sincere as the Christian who only attends Christmas mass.
All the theological themes and delicate cinematography in the world can't alter the fact that watching someone get theirs simply makes us feel better
Intense, brutal, intriguing and expertly executed.
This tautly wound and even more tightly paced mini-epic of love, loss, and redemption deep in the heart of God's country (aka Alaska) is nothing if not awe-inspiring.
Often contrived, stilted and awkwardly preachy albeit occasionally suspenseful and filled with haunting visuals.
Suggests Flannery O'Connor's Wise Blood but without the gallows humor or eye for regional detail.
The things one's faith and beliefs will make them do; finding justification in taking another's life.
