I am really glad that I found this movie by accident. It is the true story about some prisoners who escape and go on a killing spree. I know this sounds like a hundred other movies you've seen, but it really isn't. Because of his loyalty to his two brothers (both escaped convicts) the youngest brother goes along, not really knowing what to expect. As the violence unflods he is stuck between his loyalty (and fear) of his killer brothers, and the human side of himself that is disgusted by the violence they are capable of. He even tries to help some of the victims and refuses to let his brother take another female hostage to ravage and kill. I have to stop here so that I don't give away any part of the ending. To me, the measure of a good movie these days is 1. it's not a slicked up over processed series of effects, 2 it's not another lousy remake of a better older movie, and 3. I can't guess the ending half way through. This movie fits all three catagories. Enjoy.

A story of murder
Mark | Madison, Wisconsin | 11/21/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was based on a true story that happened when I was a child. I don't have much information on it to tell you how close the movie was to the truth. In my opinion, I thought it was a well written and acted movie. The story is about a "notorious" killing spree of two brothers breaking out of prison with a friend of theirs. They stopped by their younger brother's home to pickup some clothes and money. Their younger brother decides to ride with them to their mother's house where thier sister calls the police. That is when the younger brother Billy decides to travel with them across the country side. There are many killings along the way until they are finally caught by the police. I do recommend this movie to anyone that likes "crime stories" and movies that are based on "true stories"."
