Another well done character movie by Jason Statham. Direct and to the point. Quick synapses:
Hoping to escape from his troubled past, former DEA agent Phil Broker (Jason Statham) moves to a seemingly quiet backwater town in the bayou with his daughter. However, he finds anything but quiet there, for the town is riddled with drugs and violence. When Gator Bodine (James Franco), a sociopathic druglord, puts the newcomer and his young daughter in harm's way, Broker is forced back into action to save her and their home. Based on a novel by Chuck Logan.
Although described as a druglord by however wrote this short synapsis, James Franco portrays nothing more than a hillbilly style moonshiner who dabbles with drugs instead of moonshine. Jason Statham does what he does best, portraying a character who is trying to mind his own business, somewhat shy, yet believing what is right.
