originally posted October 16, 2006
The film centers on a father, played by Bacon, whose family is attacked as part of a gang initiation. The father is out for revenge and enacts a death sentence on each gang member involved. Tyler plays a homicide detective who aids Bacon's character despite her growing suspicions that he might have committed murder.
Goodman will play Bones Darly, an arms dealer and the boss of a drug ring that includes his two sons, Billy (Garrett Hedlund, Four Brothers) and Joe (Matthew O'Leary, Brick).
The screenplay was adapted from a Brian Garfields novel, in which Tyler's character is written as a 50-year-old man. The role was revised by the filmmakers during casting.
