Drawing inspiration from films like “No Country for Old Men” and “Collateral,” director Nicholas Maggio crafts a rural noir debut with “Mob Land.” The narrative centers on Shelby, a family man reluctantly entangled in a heist orchestrated by his impulsive brother-in-law. The heist’s downfall introduces Clayton, an unyielding mob enforcer reminiscent of Anton Chigurh. Sheriff Bodie Davis, portrayed by John Travolta, lends depth as he navigates crime scenes with a weary yet observant approach. While the film is influenced, Maggio effectively captures the town’s desolation due to economic decline and addiction. Atmospheric tension and committed performances elevate the narrative beyond its derivative nature, resulting in an engaging story. Visit flixtor movies for more!
