Spunky and rebellious, Becky (Lulu Wilson) is brought to a weekend getaway at a lake house by her father Jeff (Joel McHale) in an effort to try to reconnect. The trip immediately takes a turn for the worse when a group of convicts on the run, led by the merciless Dominick (Kevin James), suddenly invade the lake house.
May I start off by saying how I was really hesitant to check this movie out with an open mind, I typically can’t stand anyone from Sandler’s clique except for Kevin Nealon and on occasion David Spade. When I first turned on the movie I was thinking ”Okay, let’s see how terrible this could be”. Then something happened I wasn’t expecting.
I ended up really loving this movie! So much, in fact, it may make my top five thriller films of the year! Kevin James is against type and nails it. Think Owen Wilson in The Minus Man. I wish Kevin James will continue channeling his darker side in the roles he chooses.
Lulu Wilson’s performance will be talked about for years to come with genre fans. She does something extraordinary and rare in her performance that is buzz-worthy among the indie circuit. Joel McHale also gives an admirable outing that should get him cast in more movies. He seems to be really picky with his feature film outings.
I would highly recommend this movie to our readers and I hope you will enjoy as much as I did.
