Bad Country (2014)


 bad-country“South Louisiana in the 1980s was a different kind of time and place. Some called it lawless. But it wasn’t. Others said we just got a certain way of doing things down here. But it ain’t that either. Instead, I call it what it was. Hell with the lid off. ” – Bud Carter

Number of Times Seen – 1  (28 Jul 2014)

Brief Synopsis – A Louisiana detective uncovers a huge criminal ring with the help of an informant. Based on a true story.

My Take on it – I had higher hopes for this movie based on the fact that it has a pretty good cast.

Unfortunately even the likes of Willem Dafoe, Matt Dillon, Tom Berenger and Amy Smart couldnt give the story and characters enough depth to make it more interesting.

The fact that this is based on a true event makes it slightly more enjoyable but it’s still too bad this couldn’t have been made better.

Bottom Line – Good movie but the weak character development keeps the viewer distant from caring what happens to the characters. Enjoyable to watch Dillon and Dafoe together but the movie is only slighty above average.

Rating – BAFTA Worthy
