About the Movie
From Jonás Cuarón and Alfonso Cuarón, the acclaimed filmmakers of Gravity, comes the modern, heart-pounding suspense-thriller starring Golden Globe winner Gael García Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle, Y Tu Mamá También) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead, Watchmen). What begins as a hopeful journey to seek a better life becomes a harrowing and primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante chases a group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous U.S. - Mexican border. In the harsh, unforgiving desert terrain, the odds are stacked firmly against them as they continuously discover there’s nowhere to hide from the unrelenting, merciless killer.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Is it a cautionary tale for would-be border crossers, or an indictment of anti-immigrant rage? Doesn't matter; the gory unpleasantness overrides everything else.
Fresh: [An] overly simplistic but effectively tense nail-biter.
Fresh: A brutal and merciless chase thriller that makes no apologies for its political one-sidedness and visceral extremity.
Rotten: Sam's racist behavior may be intended to make him a menacing sign of our times, but such unbelievable mustache-twirling makes him as threatening as a C-grade Freddy Krueger knockoff.
Jeffery Dean Morgan and the rest of the cast have no idea how to use that rifle. They don't even use it consistently...and a nice rock would have taken care of that dog a short time in.
Waste of time.
Completely exaggerated work of stereotypical politically driven fiction
A story of Resilience
Quality Acting and Directing, straight forward plot, no story, but if you are into Action/Chase movies this is a good one. It will draw criticism if you look at the glass half empty, and I could see why, but those that look at it half full sees a migrant that takes on the ill wills of society head on.
