WitchyPoo’s Review: Ever wonder what happened to that kid who played Frank in “SlingBlade”. Here he is, all grown up and gives yet another stellar performance. With his talent I am surprised we don’t see him in more things than we do.
This is an older movie, but I’d not heard of it. I am surprised. Although it would never pass as a mega hit or become a classic, it is a good movie on it’s own merits. It has talented actors (Coyote & Black), a plot that keeps you guessing, and a twist at the end that is unexpected. I enjoyed it. If you get the chance to see it, don’t pass it up.
This is a 3 out of 5 Black Cat movie on WitchyPoo’s rating scale 😉
