Reviewer:

Synopsis:
On the night that he is released from prison, Lucas Blackstone (Angus MacFadyen from Braveheart) sets out for the town of Trinity to find the man who murdered his son. Armed with a pistol and a past full of mistakes, Lucas kidnaps Shawn Everett (Bradley Dorsey) and his wife Carrie (Haylie Duff) and holds them hostage. As the trio travels to Trinity, Lucas learns of Shawn and Carrie's troubled marriage and questions their ability to reconcile their love through their faith in God. But Lucas has no interest in their faith, that is until he discovers the horrible truth about this son's killer.

Dove Worldview:
This is an edge-of-your-seat film to watch and Angus MacFadyen gives a terrific performance as Lucas Blackstone. Lucas breaks into a home while the owner is away and steals a gun. Next he shows up at a campfire where a husband and wife, Shawn and Carrie Everett (Bradley Dorsey and Haylie Duff) are roasting marshmallows and arguing over the fact that Shawn forgot to buy the chocolate for the Smores they were going to make. Later we learn there is more to their arguing than just the Smores.

Blackstone kidnaps the couple, forcing Shawn to drive his truck, and keeps them in the dark at first as to where they are going. He can be hard as nails at times and yet show concern for them, such as when Carrie's blood sugar gets low from not eating, he has them stop at a local convenience store to buy some food. He also wants to ask them questions and debate about the existence of God. It is obvious that something has happened to him that was a life changing experience and it was not a good thing.

The title of the movie is appropriate as Shawn and Carrie begin an attempt to administer grace to Blackstone. The audience learns of his sorrow by film's end and this story is ultimately one of hope and redemption. It is well acted and written and features a powerful redemptive theme. We are more than pleased to award it our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for ages twelve plus. Be taken by grace yourself and don't miss this one.
