Storyline

Across the Southwest United States, dozens of towns in the Mexican borders are being plagued by arms dealers who make a fortune by smuggling guns and ammunition to arm the cartels. Rumoured to be dead, Sheriff Wallace returns as the prodigal son to his hometown in Los Reyes County, Arizona, to replace Leland, the unapologetic, small-town man of the law after a routine check that went terribly wrong and forced him to retire. Soon enough, Wallace will get caught in the middle of a bloody inquiry trying to find out those who struck the profitable deal, while at the same time, a stash of blood-money and a kill list made by the relentless Atticus, the cartel's resilient hit man, threatens the town's peace. From now on, there will be no arresting anymore. Written by Nick Riganas

Lurid & Violent...But Lazy Storytelling Amost Sinks Well Acted Neo-Noir
19 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We are Once Again at the American-Mexican Border where Cartels make the already Living Hell Environment more of a Living Hell, Employing Soulless Killers and Corrupting the Weak and Dying that have Lost Their Hope and Dreams of an Existence with God By Their Side.

This is an Above Average DTV with a First-Rate Noir Cast Featuring Patrick Wilson, Ian McShane, Jim Belushi, and John Leguizamo.

The Violence is Brutal and an Urgency is Felt as the Townsfolk Duck and Cover from the Flying Bullets and Nastiness all around. The Movie is Shot in a Dusty, Sun Drenched Landscape of Endless Horizons, Trailer Parks, Sleazy Environs, and Unfinished, Abandoned Home Constructions.

It Wears its Neo-Noir Bona-Fides with Pride and if it wasn't for the Incomprehensible Script and Sloppy, Lazy Montage it would Rank as one of the Better in the Genre.

But its Pulpy Style is Burdened with God-Awful Storytelling that leaves the Viewer in a constant state of Confusion trying Desperately to Figure What the Hell is Going On most of the time.

What is Going On is Visceral and Engaging for B-Movie Fans that Love the Style and don't give much of a Damn about Substance. For those Folks Kick Back and Enjoy the Sleaze. For Others, it is just too Befuddling to give a High Recommendation. It's Definitely Worth a Watch for the Lead Actors, Violence, and Style.

The Movie, however, Never quite Comes Together and the Love Interest Scenes, along with the general Storytelling are Woefully Weak and just Awful.
