      Kyle Smith New York Post Rated: 1.5/4 Mar 25, 2006 Full Review Newsday Rated: 2/4 Mar 24, 2006 Full Review Noel Murray AV Club [It's] what happens when a director makes a movie based on what he imagines to be true, instead of what's actually so. Rated: C- Mar 23, 2006 Full Review Phil Villarreal Arizona Daily Star The film comes closer to doing for firearms what "Jurassic Park 3" did for dinosaurs. It showed lots of 'em, had them kill a few people and made you wish it would end sooner than it did.

      Audience Member Amazing low-key drama that keeps you riveted until the end. James Coburn gives an Academy award worthy performance. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in a powerful drama with good writing and acting by Coburn and Madsen. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Bad movie, but great performance by Coburn. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member "I still believe in God...I just don't know what to make of him."-Martin Tillman (James Coburn) First off and foremost, James Coburn was the man (RIP). Exellent drama and true to life. Lets you decide for yourself, are guns good, bad? "Time is the great healer."-Anne Tillman (Barbara Bain) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member All I can say about this film with out giving anything away is WOW. James Coburn played an excellent part, just a shame to see him in his elder years all crippled up with arthritis in his hands, watch closely and you will see it. This one shouldn't be missed. 3 1/2 stars Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member A solemn road movie about a father and his relationship to his murdered daughter, manifested through the actual gun that killed her. No action, toned down violence and someimes a bit too slow, what stands out is the good acting performance by veteran actor James Coburn in what turned out to be his last appearance on the silver screen. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member james coburn is a legend and this film isn't... Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
