Billy and Betty were the Bonnie and Clyde of their generation. But their crime spree came to an end when, after gunning down innocent victims in a violent bank robbery, Billy was apprehended by the authorities and sentenced to life in prison. Seven years later, a jurisdictional technicality states that Billy will have to be tried in a neighboring state, and Betty takes the opportunity to spring her lover during the tense prison transfer. Swiping a car and hitting the road, the pair attempt to pick up where they left off when Betty realizes that Billy isn't the same man she fell in love with. Prison has changed Billy, and after admitting that he feels a terrible sense of remorse for his past transgressions, he reveals that someone is targeting and torturing those closest to him. And there's proof of the crime, too, because whoever is responsible for these heinous crimes has sent photographs of the victims to Billy. Later, as Betty and Billy arrive at their destination to find that the small town has seemingly been abandoned, a scream rips through the darkness and Billy's sister Jenny appears bloody and shaken. Judgment is coming, and although Billy now regrets his past sins, there's no appealing his sentence of death. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Consensus: Cleverly written and directed, this is a tight, atmospheric and claustrophobic low budget British thriller.
