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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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
