I adore Tom Jane, which is why it breaks my heart something awlful to tell you this movie was indeed something awlful!

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

As stated in the comment below, this movie is very much like a Twilight Zone episode. Or something Alfred Hitchcock or some other horror film director might conjure up. What starts out as a normal honeymoon trip turns into a nightmare. There are some frightening moments (literally darkness in the desert) but ultimately the ending leaves one confused and hoodwinked.

Fair – Dark Country (2009) 88 min. Thomas Jane stars and directs this Twilight Zone-like film about a couple on a dark road who encounter an accident victim. The film style and camera work is definitely eye popping with a hint of film noir thrown into the mix. As most episodes of Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents, the viewer waits for the final outcome of the story that lends a convincing conclusion to what’s been shown to that point – kind of like a punch-line to a joke. Unfortunately, the ending of this film left me wanting so much more in terms of explaining what just transpired; which is the reason for the “fair” rating. By in large, this is a crafty well paced film which is enjoyable; I just hope you have better luck understanding the ending other than being the obvious (i.e. it is what it is – stop thinking about it).
