Clint Says: Worth a digital rental
When I saw the information for this film I was nervous that it might not be very good. It is written by one brother, who is also the star of the film, and directed by the other brother. Many times that means that it is a low-budget flick without professional cinematic value. Thankfully, this movie is about 95% of what you would expect a wide-release film to look and feel like.
Yes, it has its moments of bad acting, non-dramatic chase scenes, and other amateur issues, but for the most part this is a pretty good film. The story is compelling enough to help keep the movie interesting even when the film work isn't the greatest. And the characters' journeys are deep and emotional.
This is in no way one of the best films you will see this year, but it is still one that is worth seeing if you have the time. I wouldn't suggest going out of your way to see it, but if you are scrolling through your streaming devices and can't find anything to watch, you might want to give this one a try.
