The small working-class town of Angels Crest is a tight-knit community resting quietly in one of the vast and stunningly beautiful valleys of the Rocky Mountains. Ethan, one of the town's residents, is a young father but not much more than a kid himself. He has no choice but to look after his three-year-old son Nate, since mom Cindy is an alcoholic. But one snowy day, Ethan's good intentions are thwarted by a moment of thoughtlessness, resulting in tragedy. A local prosecutor haunted by his past goes after Ethan, and the ensuing confusion and casting of blame begins to tear the town apart.

THe movie plays out in three acts or the mental descent of Ana. However, we don't really care. None of the trivial mysteries are solved. We don't know what is real and what isn't. It is just using colour and cheap gimicks to tell nothing.

I'm not impressed by the way they handled the gay character, but.. oh well.. the movie was far more about Tommy anyway.. and his character was human.. made some mistakes.. realized when he did it and tried to make up for it.. Well acted, mostly well written.. and for those willing to watch it all the way through.. a great story.

I seriously hated this movie and the only reason why I didn't give this movie a lower rating is because of Jeremy Piven, he was pretty funny in this one. But other than that this movie fell flat, it had bad writing, bad direction and god awful performances by it's two leads. I already know Mandy Moore can't act worth of shit, but in this movie she was way beyond awful. The lead guy Matthew Goode was also very bad in this one, he had poor delivery and it seemed like he was trying way too hard. I mostly blame the writers for the awfulness of this movie because the reason this movie is so cliched and predictable is because of the writers and plus the dialogue in this movie was a complete joke. I know some people do enjoy this movie, but I honestly have to say there is nothing good about this movie maybe Jeremy Piven is fun to watch, but that's it and that's seriously not enough to make this movie good. So please skip this one because it's just your typical chick flick that has the most generic story and the most cliched conclusion.

I like how this movie brings a strong sense of fateful drama and dark irony that Stephen King does so well, but this is one of his weaker stories to begin with. The premise, set up and early execution work, but it feels like it gets away from itself in the back half of the movie. The most glaring problem of the film is that the placed in the hands of Tom Holland, who is an under-talented director. There is no style or creativity to this film it is just too straightforward. It fails to make the emotional impact or instill the dark uneasy feel that King intended. Robert John Burke does a fine job in the lead role, but his character is not particularly likable. The makeup work done for his character was not easy to pull off but it was decent, considering when it was made. Later in the movie main character takes an unreasonable turn that I just did not care for, as he loses his mind. The ending seems abrupt, and is completely uneven, and unsatisfying.

Trejo is terrific in the title role, which is little surprise considering it was written specifically for him. Rodriguez's usual camp is in full force, but the concept of this story/character/film, is far more enjoyable then the story/character/film itself.
