Dark and visually captivating

Dark, visually captivating, "Inherit the viper" portrays the early stages of the opioids epidemic in the US in a way the audience, especially those living in the Appalachia, can relate to, through a good balance of storytelling and reality, tension, great performances and atmosphere.No need for shaky, effect loaded action scenes. Just a thrilling story of family and crime.

Josh Hartnett is finally back

This movie really grabs you (in a good way)It's deep, dark and hooks you until the end.

Soap Opera with Opioids

With America seeing an opioid epidemic, movies like this are becoming more commonplace, but in this movie which is largely well done, the opioid epidemic takes a back seat to what is instead a soap opera and not a very realistic one at that. The actors are all well cast and excellent in their roles, Margarita Levieva shines in the lead with Josh Hartnett ,who BTW has an excellent singing voice. Yet the movie kind of bored me. It's as if the production hit all the right notes in set, atmosphere and casting but forgot a compelling plot and script. I didn't really feel anything for the characters . The movie needed more grit, more drama, more action. If you are a fan of any of the stars it's worth watching but overall it failed to be interesting. I would never sit through it a second time.

Dark, Brooding and Atmospheric

I thought this was a great movie .... Dark and atmospheric. Josh Hartnett is very good in the first thing I've seen him in for sometime.
