Prime Example Of Southern Stereo-Typing, And A Bad Movie To Boot

Let me just start by saying that I live in Tennessee and that movies like this one are a prime example of why people in other parts of the country think southerns are ignorant rednecks. Every person in this movie (save the lead guy and girl) was portrayed as your average backwoods, small town, southern hillbilly. It was disgusting, but even that I could have over looked if the movie had been half way decent. For the first hour and 15 minutes nothing happens at all, I mean NOTHING. I think the makers of this movie were trying to "build suspense" but it failed miserably and just came off as boring. When it finally did get going there was nothing exciting, innovative or great about it, they tussled a bit, the "hero" killed the "bad guys" and the movie went off. This was a huge let down. I implore your money, stay away from this one.

Straw Dogs was enjoyable enough. It just took a little long for the action to get started. The wife was a little annoying and so was Janice but you'll figure that out once you see it. It was worth it if only to see Alexander Skardgard shirtless!

The movie was good. A-lot of people were judging to much on the whole view of the southerns ignorant rednecks potrayed in the movie as they say. There some parts were they rape her and its over rated by a bit but overall the intensity was really good.
