You might think that being based on the true life tale of Jesse James Hollywood (it's really only the names that are changed), all the tension would be gone from this movie - we all already know the ending, right? In this case, however, that doesn't happen, and that's totally down to the relationship between Anton Yelchin as the eventual victim and Justin Timberlake (yes, I know he's a pretty boy singer but the guy can and does act extremely well in this movie). It's heartbreaking to watch the story unfold and you really feel for this poor, trusting kid who honestly believes that his kidnappers are cool guys and that they'll be taking him home after a few beers and spliffs. Ben Foster also puts in an amazing show, but the entire cast is excellent and they're what keeps the film believable.
It is an excellent movie and well worth a watch but as per the drug culture it depicts every other word out of their mouths is an expletive so if you're not into swearing, then this is probably one to avoid. I urge you not to though, because there's a very real story under here.
