It certainly seemed simple enough...
Based on Scott B. Smith's novel; scripted by the author himself.

This is a story of three men (Bill Paxton, Billy Bob Thornton, Brent Briscoe) who find a staggering amount of cash in a downed airplane. Their decision to hold on to this money until they can figure out what to do with it turns out to be a very bad one. Before long, people are being murdered left and right, and the relationship of Paxton and Thornton (who play brothers) gets very strained indeed.

An almost top-notch thriller with a compelling moral dilemma: what would any of us do in this situation? To keep the money or not to keep it, that is the question.

I think it's stretched out a bit long, but ultimately I understand it's necessary for the viewer to understand where these characters are coming from.

The highlight of this movie is watching this cast at work, especially Thornton (an Academy Award-nominee for his performance), who may make it a must-see even for those who aren't impressed with the movie otherwise.

An ultimately very sad and bleak movie (with an inspired wintry Minnesota setting) about the horrible things that otherwise good people can be capable of.

I give it eight out of ten.
