Darkly comic pulp that scratches a certain itch if you like your crime capers a little bit trashy, a tiny bit puerile, and a whole lot violent. Wood plays a never-worked-a-day hipster who’s in waaaaaay over his head when his estranged dad invites him to his ocean-side home.
The set-up is a nail-biter, but the tension is released the further it goes along and more is revealed. Still though, that thick layer of menace and black comedy earns a heap-ton of goodwill upfront, even if the later sadism is a turn-off. (And who’s to say it is?)
