After recovering from a twisted ankle, the drifter Nat Banyon hitchhikes on the road, trying to reach Wyoming, where he dreams of owning an ostrich farm. However, an incident in a bar results in him stealing a car from the guy that was beating him up. He heads to Wyoming, but on the way he sees a car accident and saves the driver Herman Finch, who owns the Deepwater Hotel.

While painting the hotel, Nat becomes obsessed with Finch's wife, Iris, and discovers that Finch is a loan shark and corrupt. Furthermore, he hatches a scheme involving a car dealer (Walnut) and his partner, the Indian Joe Littlefeet in the local casino. After the mysterious death of a local and a policeman that had issues with Finch, Nat decides to leave Deepwater; but Iris ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Fight Club without the Club
26 October 2006 | by kyyle7311See all my reviews

I honestly fell for the trap that this movie sets up throughout the plot and the surprise ending. The problem I had with this surprise ending compared to other surprise endings is that when you see a surprise ending, it's supposed to make you think, "Well, that makes sense." This one does the exact opposite and the movie does a poor job in my opinion of setting up the surprise ending. This is unfortunate considering the acting was superior in every area. I couldn't help but think of "Fight Club" as they are running down the surprise ending. Parallel to what we were shown in the movie is a view of what "actually" happened. And as good as I think Lucas Black is as an actor, he doesn't even compare to Brad Pitt or Edward Norton at least not at this point in his career. Overall, a strange and diluted plot that does not fill two hours until you see what happens at the end at which point I was left a little wanting.
