    Sheridan has a really good track record so far, and it's always good to see Jon Bernthal in action.

    Trailer is showing more than it needs to though.

    Trigger Warning for an Aiden Gillen accent; but anyone looking like some middle budget, adult thriller entertainment might do well here; comes from the director of Wind River, writer of Hell or High Water.

    Was never her biggest fan, but it's still good to see Angelina Jolie back headlining something again.

    There's a thread on this already. Looks promising although that trailer doesn't leave out much.

    Gonna avoid the trailer I think, as I'll watch it anyway. Sheridan's a great writer - though like Sorkin, I think he's a better writer than a director.

    That's a catchy title for a film.

    This is very watchable.

    Just finished it and I really enjoyed it and easy watch and just an hour and half.

    They need to go back to making 90/100 minute movies.



    Aidan Gillen this last decade just plays Aidan Gillen in everything he is in.

    Didn't think I'd like it with Jolie in it but as it was Taylor Sheridan movie said I'd give it a go and really enjoyed it. Good performances all round, even the young fella played by Australian actor Finn Little was pretty good.
    A solid 7.5 out of 10

    This was very much of the "they don't make them like this anymore" mould. Solid, adult entertainment with a headlining star and a decent premise or set of stakes. And with an efficient 90 minute runtime to boot. Not sure it was Sheridan's best work but a very solid piece of Hollywood we no longer get.

    My only quibble is that if this was made in the 90s, I feel like they'd have done more with the premise in its set pieces. I was a little disappointed "bad guys start a forest blaze while hunting a witness" didn't involve more exciting scenes or standoffs. A distinct lack of hail Mary waterfall jumps.

    Thought it was OK. A very generic movie largely saved by a great cast who put in a really good turn. There are no memorable scenes, dialogue or set pieces, it just clips along at a decent pace.

    I'd say it's a 6/10 at best. Perfectly watchable but incredibly by-the-numbers. Watch for the cast.

    It's mediocre. Script is undercooked and some of the casting and direction isn't right. There's no tension. A poorly adapted vehicle for Jolie whose character isn't as big or central as the trailer makes out.
