Editorial Reviews

Walker Payne, a divorced ex-con and deadbeat dad, doesn't have much going for him. About all he's got is his loyal best friend, a pit bull named Brute. Out of a job and scraping bottom, Walker is given one shot, a chance to turn his life around, but the cost will be high...maybe higher than any decent man can bear. An all-star cast featuring Jason Patric, (In the Valley of Elah), Drea de Matteo (TV's The Sopranos), KaDee Strickland (American Gangster), Sam Shepard (The Assassination of Jesse James) and Bruce Dern (Monster) fuels this intense, gritty drama.

Customer Reviews

I would have enjoyed this movie more if the sex scenes were not as graphic.
James D. Chinelo
Very reluctantly Walker steps into what is a scheme that results in tragedies in which he seems to lose it all - his dog, his freedom, his new love, and his girls.
Grady Harp
The fact the film has a noticeable made-for-TV appearance about it doesn't help either.
B. E Jackson

Jason Patric, Sam Shepherd, Bruce Dern, Kadee Strickland and Drea De Matteo make for a solid performance piece about a man's desire to see his daughters and provide for them no matter what the cost. The location filming in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Ohio bolster a period environment recreation that was thoroughly believable regarding the isolation and small down depression. The main character's unquestioning loyalty to his companion dog comes to a test as he is given the chance to end all of his financial woes through dogfighting. Sam Shepherd plays the bad guy that takes our lead into this underworld, and Kadee plays the moral compass love interest.

The course of the film follows the continuous angst, hatred, depression and moral questioning of these people's lives as they try to make a living and maybe find love. In the end, the message becomes about accepting responsibility for one's actions and having a strong, small core of trusting people around you.

1957 middle America never looked so thoroughly recreated (that I have seen in years) as it did here. Authentically, I would give this film the highest rating with the props, cars, interiors and landscapes.

I had to watch this film twice to take in everything shown on screen; and since the only DVD extra is the commentary I wanted to learn how they did the dog scenes and find out where the locations of filming were. I was initially going to rate this lower with how miserable the emotions are throughout the film and how depressed one feels at the end, but then I realized that everyone had done their job to a superb level.

I would highly recommend listening to the commentary for those interested in independent film production and for those that want to learn about the locales shown.

Format: DVD
WALKER PAYNE, as written by director Matt Williams and Alex Paraskevas, is a bleak study of life in the late 1950s middle America. It is a story of dreams crushed by the tough realities of bad luck and bad decisions. For some viewers this story may be depressing, but for others the story as a cinematic recreation of a period of time in America is full of fine details and boasts a cast of excellent actors who manage to involve us in the fleeting hopes and the permanent scars that are magnified during difficult times and circumstances.

Walker Payne (Jason Patric), a loveable man with a prison record, works in an Illinois coal mine, spends his free time womanizing, yet is strongly attached to his two young daughters who now live with his estranged wife (Drea de Matteo) - a woman angry with her plight in life, having sacrificed her dreams of being a nurse to move to the little mining town, surviving as a waitress without child support from the financially delinquent Walker. His closest companion is his Pit Bull dog Brute who accompanies him everywhere. Walker longs to have his girls live with him, but the injured wife puts a price on that wish: she will give him possession of the girls for a fee of $5000., a figure she has calculated will pay for her leaving the little town she hates and pay for tuition and boarding in nursing school.

Walker is at a loss for funds, especially when the mine shuts down and he is unemployed. Seeking help from his banker friend does not result in a loan but does acquaint him with a new woman in town - Audrey (KaDee Strickland) - a proper girl with her own reasons for 'escaping' to the solitudes of the little mining town where she has a responsible position in the bank.

A few scenes from this movie were filmed at the drive-in theater that close friends of mine own. I work there during the summer so although I didn't get to meet the cast, I found out some interesting information. This movie is based on a true story. It is a wonderful movie and it made me absolutely adore Jason Patrick. It is worth every penny purchasing this movie.

If you like to watch movies about good ethical questions, you'd probably like this movie. Here, we have Walker Payne, who loves his daughters dearly. There, we have Walker's ex-wife, who views the girls as a 'millstone' preventing her from seeking her dreams, but who also is so vindictive she won't let the girls see their father if it can be helped. Walker's ex-wife is demanding $5,000 for him to get custody. It just so happens that Walker's faithful dog is a pit bull that has qualities that make him a top-level dog fighter. So, Walker has to make a decision - to break the laws against dog fighting to win enough money to get his girls. This movie will provide a great opportunity for traditional values families to discuss these issues. Is it ethical to break the law, and possibly the death of your dog, to be able to love your daughters and try to give them a better (more loving) childhood?

There is a bit of unmarried sex, and a good sprinkling of objectionable language; there is also the violence of the dog fights, so the movie is not for pre-high school age.

I would have enjoyed this movie more if the sex scenes were not
as graphic. Very good portrayal of rural America. Strong and
determined performances by Jason Patric and Sam Sheppard.
The pit bull dogs were not harmed in this movie which was very
good to know.
