    The suspense comes and goes, but A Single Shot always maintains a firm grip on its sad, deteriorating environment.

    This film just does not have enough juice and has a tendency to just crawl along. The film is well made and Sam Rockwell does his best with what he's been given, but unfortunately that's not much. C Full Review »

    "A Single Shot" es una buena pelicula que tiene drama y suspenso, no es la mejor pelicula de su genero pero es una pelicula que vale la pena verla.Esta pelicula no tuvo un buen argumento y tuvo un desarrollo lento, pero logro entretenerme. Full Review »

    I like the mystery of this film, I liked the tone and I loved the cast! However, the film tends to forget its methodical, slow pace towards the end and decides that they did enough character development and decides to wrap things up quickly…whether or not you knew who the responsible parties were. This movie could have been great if more care was taking into the growth and development of the players (heck, even just making sure the characters are introduced by name would have helped) as it was to make sure the film was dark, grimy and depressing. While not terrible, “A Single Shot” triumphs with great performances and a fantastic tone but fails with its lack of expansion on some important players in the story. Full Review »
