From The Executive Producers of MACHETE and TRUE GRIT
Bruce Willis, Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Nikki Reed (The TWILIGHT Saga), Deborah Ann Woll (''True Blood'') and Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) star in the tough, sexy story of three hit women sent to rural Louisiana to intercept a big money dope deal. But when they get to the near-empty roadside café, bullets blast apart what was supposed to be a simple transaction. It could be a huge, bloody misunderstanding but it might also be a deadly double-cross. Shea Whigham (''Boardwalk Empire'') and Academy Award® nominee Brad Dourif (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) co-star in this intense crime thriller with a killer twist.

"I think the script should be like this"
"No, I think it should be more like this"
"OK, we'll compromise and use a little bit of your script and a little bit of mine and bit of his, and hers and see what happens"
Talk about conflicted. No one involved with this movie seemed to know what it was about
Talk about confusion. Everyone who watches this will scratch their head and wonder why
Talk about alternative endings: This film has alternative scenes. The entire movie is a collection of what might have happened IF... WHAT IF we did it this way??? WHAT IF this happened instead of that??? This movie is so fragmented and so incomplete, it's a sure-fire miss. It tries to completly kill off the film industry but fortunately it is so lame it only achieves a feeble attempt.
WHAT if I had never watched this??? I'd have an extra 2 hours of my life to live.
Oh, and I am so tired of seeing 1911 firearms with the hammer down being used to threaten somebody in a movie. If the hammer is down on a 1911, that gun cannot fire. Pull the trigger all you want, and nothing is going to happen. The 1911 is by definition a single-action-only (SAO) weapon, and it's designed to be carried with a round in the chamber, the hammer back, and the safety on. With the hammer down, it's an additional step to manually pull back the hammer or rack the slide before that gun can fire. Thus, as SO often shown in movies, the person brandishing a 1911 with the hammer down has ZERO chance to get the first shot off. A 1911 with the hammer down is NO threat in a stand-off. And this movie makes that basic firearms error so epic that it's a big strike against this film.
Of course, none of the Hollywood liberals know a single thing about actual guns, so absolutely ridiculous garbage like this goes unchallenged. For all their money, apparently producers can't be bothered to hire anybody that knows a thing or two about weapons (the John Wick series being one of the few exceptions to the rule). Accuracy matters not, and, so, movies like this lose the last shred of credibility.
I'd give this one-star for Bruce and Forrest, who are always enjoyable to watch, but on Amazon one star really means no stars. So, this gets two from me, which really means one. Basically, this isn't worth your time, even for Bruce and Forrest. Pass unless you enjoy swimming around in the cesspool and losing brain cells.
Forest Whitaker is a good actor but I couldn't put a pin in who his character actually was in this one.
The good thing with this film was at least its rhythm was a constant even with the jumping around of the timeline. Everything was one or two beats too slow. It gave you enough time to figure out where each scene was going which it shouldn't have.
Even with its shortcomings I thought it was worth a look-see. I looked. I saw. No regrets.
This one is using a "limited linguistic code," meaning that every other sentence contains the f* word.
The story is so fake that it is nearly unbearable. People with their guns ready to shoot, knowing that only one of them will get out alive, engage in a long conversation in a theatrical manner, as if they were chatting away during lunch.
