RageReviews’s review published on Letterboxd:
You gotta love Walken's style. Sean Penn is a whiny little faggot in almost everything I've seen him in, but Chris' braggadocio carries this thing and actually makes him a memorable villain. I was also taken by the perception of rural Pennsylvania, a place we don't often see in movies. The ending is a bit too tidy, but the themes and pacing are unusual.
