This is yet another case of 'Don't be fooled by the trailer'.
We expected a taut, gripping thriller, as Russell Crowe tracks down a recently released 18 year old serial killer who's taking off with a bored, depressed teenage girl who's got a morbid interest in him.
It starts slowly but quite promisingly, only to drift into scene after scene of 'pursuit' and escape, with no explanation as to why Crowe's cop character can just wonder around on a private cause.
Crowe is barely on screen either, and while he can be an irritating, mumbling screen presence at least he HAS presence, and potentially his character might have had a story worth telling. It's more of a big name cameo, while the plot is driven by the young actors. Jon Foster is ok as the psycho-killer but you're supposed to feel some sympathy for his tag-along wannabe girlfriend who's just one wrong move away from a nasty end and I found her just totally annoying. Whether she's meant to be annoying, and therefore was well-acted, I'm not sure.
Clearly in dangerous company but she doesn't realise it - or does she? We ended up playing Cluedo with some scenes. In the trailer with the revolver? On the lake with a paddle? In the motel with a pillow?
A very disappointing would-be thriller, a waste of their time and mine.
