They are waiting to kill grandpa.
10 January 2009 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

It's a slow film, but one that will grab your interest and keep you hooked until the end.

The plan to go to inherited property takes a backseat to another adventure that the group stumbles upon. A grandfather is heading to his village to be killed to settle a blood feud between families that currently stands at 4-3.

There is an interesting twist at the moment the score is to be settled that makes it very interesting.

There were no standout performances, and the ending was very strange, but it was enjoyable for the story.
