Is too long by at least a half-hour for the surprisingly slight tale it has to tell.
Eastwood has crafted an engaging (albeit fictionalized) account of the triumph of ordinary men over the establishment.
With its grim tone and sickening content, this gruesome gore-fest is an unwatchable piece of excrement.

The film’s low profile makes it one of the summer’s best hidden surprises and it should please those who revel in the horror/comedy genre.
Although the movie will be embraced by the singer’s fans, it has something to offer those with no more than a casual appreciation of the man’s music.
Although the story is interesting, the presentation isn’t. Individual scenes work but the movie as a whole doesn’t.
An uneven but ultimately satisfying thriller seamlessly blends horror and thriller elements across its 108-minute running time.
