Product Description

Product Description

Multi-award winning actor Bran Cox plays recluse Avery Ludlow, a small-town shop owner whose only reason for living is his dog, Red. When a group of bored and bad-seed teens savagely kill the animal, Coz is determined to settle the score by wreaking vengeance by whatever means possible, whether within the law or not But when Ludlow learns more about one of the killers, he finds himself conflicted by his desirers for revenge and by the memory of a long-held secret. Based on the novel by cult thriller write Jack Ketchum, and written by the Writer of The Grudge , Red is a powerful story detailing what motivates an otherwise quiet man to become obsessed with retribution.

Format: DVD
This is primarily a movie about escaltion, and skillfully shows how small things can eget out of hand when people refuse to let things go. In this case it's Brian cox's character seeking an apology after young thugs kill his dog red.
I won't go into too much detail, as amazon themselves provide the best synopsis for this, nor would I want to ruin the film by spelling out the plot. I guess people who have read the book may already know but I am yet to read a Jack ketchum novel (something I will soon remedy). What I will say is that this is a damned good little movie. Don't watch expecting another death wish, brave one or death sentence as this is a far more sedate and character driven movie with an excellent central performance from brian cox. While nontheless gripping, it is rather anti-violence, showing how seemingly trivial matters can soon get out of hand. No extras to speak of but the print is fine and well worth watching.

Avery Ludlow lives alone with his dog, Red, who was a gift from his wife for his 50th birthday. His wife died many years ago, so Avery and Red have formed a very strong bond. When Avery goes fishing by a lake, three youths with a shotgun approach him and Red. After some banter, the leader of the group decides to try and rob Avery at gunpoint. Avery doesn't have any money on him which makes Danny furious, before the youths leave, Danny decides to shoot Red in the head. Danny and his friend, Pete, clearly find it hilarious, whilst Danny's brother, Harold, seems shaken up. The three walk away still laughing, leaving Avery to cradle his dead friend in his arms. Avery later finds out the identity of the boys and goes to see the brothers father, he decides to take his sons word over Avery's despite it being clear they're lying. When Avery goes to the sheriff to report the crime, he's basically told that there's nothing that can be done, he can maybe get $100 for "damaged property". Disgusted by the fact that no charges can be pressed, he decides that just an admittance and apology from the boys will suffice. When the boys continue to deny what they've done, events escalate wildly out of control.

Brian Cox is wonderful as Avery, it's a subtle, poignant performance. Red isn't a Death Wish or Death Sentence type of film, Avery just wants the kids to admit to what they've done. Cox isn't hunting down people and blowing their brains out, he's simply an ageing man that's lost his best friend and wants some kind of justice. He doesn't set out to kill everybody involved, he would have forgiven the boys if they admitted what they did, apologised and were punished accordingly.

I was pleasantly surprised by this film, initially expecting another Death Sentence / Brave One style film, but instead got something really quite unique. It's a wonderfully told story, not about violence and vengeance but about truth and the morale values of doing the right thing. Now and then, you get these little unexpected gems that stand their own ground, complimented perfectly by a mellow score and superb acting.

Its not easy to categorise this movie. Its not exactly horror like Eden Lake [DVD] [2008] or While She Was Out [DVD] [2008] although thematically it resembles these films, featuring thugs and their unwilling accomplice with a conscience, encountering someone minding their own business and targetting them with intimidation and violence. It's also not exactly a revenge movie, at least nothing like either The Brave One [DVD] [2007] or Death Sentence [DVD] [2007], it has none of the action content of either of these movies and was not exactly what I would expect from a film adapted from a Jack Ketchum book (Red).

Instead it is a feature in which Red, the much loved companion dog of a veteran and widower, is cruelly and sadistically murdered by a thug, who along with his brother and friend, randomly encounter Red and his owner whild out fishing. Red's owner is almost stoic in this life threatening and distressing situation but embarks upon a personal quest, demanding of the culprit and his friends some sign of contrition, seeking recourse first and foremost through contact with the parents of each of the adolescents and then through legal channels.

I enjoyed this movie, as it was different from a lot of the rubbish that is available on dvd.
The story goes where you don't expect it to.
I won't say more because some people give away the story when they review a film, which spoils it for those who haven't seen it.
All I can say is that I enjoyed it
