Eclectic modern western with lots of twists

This was a very unusual movie, and I am certain it will not be to everyone's taste. I am not a professional critic but to me this is almost what I envision to be "art-house" in a modern western genre.

What I loved is the movie has lots of atmosphere, intrigue, fine acting and many unexpected moments. I do think it gave up a couple of its secrets a touch to early, but I don't believe that detracts from the overall story.

There is suspense and action, and some pretty gory outcomes along the path to the conclusion. And there are at least 3 wtf moments while all that plays out.

Overall, I really enjoyed. I live for action movies, but they don't all have to be over-the-top massive cgi efforts. This was more grounded action but for me very enjoyable nonetheless.

This movie made me think of Get the Gringo with Mel Gibson from a couple of years ago. The Hollow Point lacks the humour of that movie, but it is generally in the same genre dealing with the rot that is the USA/Mexican border, the grit and seediness of the area and all the trouble of existing in it. IF you liked Get the Gringo you will like this movie - they are definitely not the same, but there is in my mind some style similarities.

Anyways, its definitely not a 5.5 movie (the current overall rating on IMDb when I write this). I have sat through enough movies of that caliber to know! I give it a solid 7 to 7.5 for overall movie value.

Well acted crime-thriller

The illegal arms trade between the USA and Mexico is the basis for the story in this crime-thriller. It involves world weary policemen, a shady local businessman, a professional killer and the dusty environs of a small town in the American South. It put me in mind of the recent Cold in July (2014) in its tone, feel and setting. Both films share quite well drawn characters and sudden scenes of strong violence. This one benefits quite a bit from a very fine cast, where we have Patrick Wilson and Ian McShane as a couple of police officers, both of whom have their own internal demons. McShane in particular seems to be having a lot of fun here and gives a very lively performance that is very good value. We also have John Leguizamo and James Belushi as the bad guys of the piece; the former doesn't perhaps get to do much more than exert an ominous physical presence (although he does it well), while Belushi is given his most interesting role in years in which he makes the most of.

The story-line is fairly complex at times, with a variety of characters interconnecting with each other in different ways. But I don't think the story is really the main selling point in this one. It does have some thrilling visceral moments for sure but this one ultimately is best enjoyed as a character-driven genre effort. A very solid and well-executed genre piece on the whole.

Very good movie

Realistic, frightening, gritty movie - unfortunately based on a real current topic/threat/situation. Movie visuals were stunning. Scenes of dusty roads, rusted trucks showed a pretty realistic view of life in a small border town. Somewhat of a cross between an old western with a good dose of modern day reality. Acting was good enough to make you forget that these guys are only playing characters to tell a story. a story. Patrick Wilson, Ian McShane and James Belushi were very good portraying good and bad sides of their characters. John Leguizamo was terrifying. I cannot understand why this movie was given only a limited release. It should have received a theater release to mass markets. Very good movie.
