His son was completely ridiculous.

Pretty cool film, I loved the feel of the environment, Connery was great, they story wasn't too bad. But then you have the exploding heads and the shotguns and on top of that the guys son. They kid calls his dad on a video phone and holey crapoli it was the fakest, dumbest, most unnecessary, and overacted scene ever!

Just wondering if anyone else noticed it, it's seriously unbearable to watch.

I still like High Noon more.

I agree with you, but I think that the kids overacting was rather funny.
