Bleak, but not in a particularly interesting manner

The basic plot of this movie - people finding a large amount of money and soon find themselves on the run by the owner of the movie - has indeed be done a number of times before. But it's still a compelling plot even after all these years, so I can understand why these particular filmmakers decided to do their own version of this plot. But I suspect that the filmmakers were also depending on the audience, who would be familiar with the plot, to fill in the gaps that they were unable to do themselves. There is a loose, often sloppy feeling to the narrative here, almost as if the filmmakers were not working with a completed script and were making things up as they went along.

Still, despite the jumbled feeling to the narrative, the movie could still have worked, being thrilling and giving insight to the dark side of humanity. But the movie doesn't work in those areas as well. It takes almost half of the movie before things turn dark and dangerous for the central characters. Before that happens, we have to sit through them whining, fighting, and acting selfish. (As it turns out, they keep acting this way through the rest of the movie as well!) It's not that I immediately object to the characters being that way - it's the fact that it's not depicted in an interesting or compelling manner. The characters will instead make you greatly annoyed.

As for John Cusack... with this movie, he finds himself further down in the direct to video hell he has been stuck in for several years. Although he has shown to be a good actor in other movies, he is simply not good here. Miscasting him as a ruthless bad guy certainly hurts, but Cusack himself makes things worse by giving a very bored and phoned-in performance. There is nothing scary about the character he is playing, who should have been ruthless and tough.

To sum up, there is pretty much nothing here to make the movie worth a watch, even if you see it for free on Netflix (where I saw it.) See the movies "Cas$h" or "Night of the Running Man" instead for far better takes on this formula.

OK It's not that bad for a night with nothing else on

I enjoy watching John. I'm not a huge fan, but when I happen across a movie that he's in I usually find it enjoyable. He's from my era and reminds me of the high top sneaker, T-shirt, bandana wearing, life sucks crowd back in the day. In this movie it looks like he's been roaming around the woods since the 80's, lol. It's not a bad movie, although if I'd have paid to see it in the theater I may feel differently. However, for a Friday night when nothing else was on, this was pretty enjoyable. Lynn is that selfish girl everyone knows, yes the one that is OK when she's getting what she wants, but when things aren't going her way it's everybody else's fault. She sees money and goes hog wild believing it will solve all her ills, but like in most movies, greed corrupts and destroys. Cusacks character is odd, he goes around killing people somewhat accidentally, seems immediately remorseful, but then, just as quickly, oh well. LOL. Lynn becomes more and more ruthless as she becomes more and more desperate, after all she has to fully commit at this point. That piece seems a bit much, but still It's worth a watch IMHO.

This is why everyone shouldn't be allowed to review

I was gonna review the movie, which I found to be a 1 star after getting halfway through it, 3 kids in the woods and a bad guy chasing them, really predictable, blah, blah, blah. But then I saw a review from a guy titled, "Good lesson on how money corrupts" by subxerogravity17 October 2017 in which he said, "It's actually a great plot, but it does fall on DETH'S ears for me. Just not clicking fully."

First of all, the idiot can't spell "death's," but then he's too stupid to realize the phrase is "deaf ears" and even if he knew what it meant, who's deaf ears did he think the plot fell on???? What??
