Excellent Contemporary Thriller

“South Of Heaven” is tonally similar to other dramatic thrillers such as “No Country For Old Men” and “Hell Or High Water.” Parents who have seen either of those two films should have a worthy idea of what to expect from “South Of Heaven” as far as violent content is concerned. Compelling performances all-around from the entire cast, most notably Jason Sudeikis and Mike Colter.
