Looks very Fargo-esque ... will check it out in the next few days!

Watched this tonight and it was a big...meh.

The annoying daughter in Homeland is now the annoying sister in this movie. As mentioned above, it started out with a somewhat “New England Fargo” feel to it but it quickly lost that about 10 minutes in. After that, there wasn’t much character or heart to this. The entire plot very straight forward, almost too straight forward, where I was starting to hope for some sort of plot twist or something to keep me engaged. Ultimately it just meanders to an end without any sort of energy and very few interesting characters.

I went into this almost completely blind, only knowing what the two sentence plot synopsis said. I wasn’t sure if this was going to be a dark comedy or a serious thriller. Unfortunately, it wasn’t either, and honestly, I’m not sure it knew what it wanted to be. It played it serious for the most part but every once in a while decided to lighten it up with a singing sailor who breaks the fourth wall. None of that really meshed well.

Like GoldenJCJ, I am very disappointed it didn't turn out to be Fargo-esque. The story line was there for something on those lines, but I don't think there was an ounce of humor in this movie. Not even ironic humor like in A Serious Man.

Once I figured that out and got past it, I thought it was good enough. My critcism is that it was too straightforward. No real plot twists or surprises.

Completely agree. I enjoyed the sea shanties, but the rest of the movie was bland. There was no reason to care about any of the characters.
