Elevator Pitch On the Mexican border a hunter discovers a drugs for money exchange which has gone wrong, leaving all the participants dead and a case with two million dollars in cash for the taking. He takes the money and finds himself on the run from an assassin who is killing everyone in his path while the police are left picking up the pieces.
Content Scenes in the wild outback of West Texas. Constant tension as the assassin tracks the hunter, including killings with a cattle bolt gun, machine guns and a shotgun fitted with a silencer.
A View This movie won best picture and other awards at the Oscars in 2008, and received many other nominations, and it is 164 of the IMDb Top 250. It is a terrific film in every respect and worth paying money to see even now.
