This is the most vicious we’ve ever seen Tom Holland on screen, as Arvin Russell takes the lessons his father taught him of standing up for himself and his family and enacts them in bloody, brutal fashion. The conflict between trying to be better, and ultimately giving in to his fighter’s nature gives Holland some real hearty material to mine, and it’s a bit of a shame that we have to wait until after a good portion of the film has passes to get to it. The same goes for Robert Pattinson’s Reverend Teagardin, who isn’t merely a blustery clergyman that fits a stereotypical mold. He’s sneaky, with just the right amount of fire and brimstone to give Pattinson the typical platform that shows us why he’s one of the best actors on the circuit at this time. Again, more of the good Reverend’s toned down, but definitely heinous personality, would have been just what the doctor ordered in this particular case.
