Movie Info

After a mass shooting at a police funeral, reclusive ex-cop Gannon finds himself unwittingly forced out of retirement when he realizes that the killer belongs to the same militia he joined after quitting the force. Understanding that the shooting could set off a chain reaction of copycat violence across the country, Gannon quarantines his fellow militiamen in the remote lumber mill they call their headquarters. There, he sets about a series of grueling interrogations, intent on ferreting out the killer and turning him over to the authorities to prevent further bloodshed.

... an efficient, mechanical five-finger exercise written and directed by Henry Dunham.

It's an effective little thriller whose occasional flaws come mostly as a result of its considerable virtues, so you roll with it.

What makes The Standoff at Sparrow Creek special is how much it reminds you of stories of alpha males like Reservoir Dogs, The Thing, and Mamet's work without ever feeling wholly derivative.

January 18, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

There is a timely element to "Sparrow Creek" that speaks to our current moment and mood in this country, but the simple, effective nature of Dunham's sharp storytelling makes him a talent to watch going forward.

The gaps in logic might be easier to forgive if the movie's real-world resonances weren't so troubling.
