Hopefully “after one of them is accused of a hit and run” is enough. Reminds me of First Blood.I’m keeping it mysterious why these guys are enemies – and trying to keep it lean.I’m leading with “two sworn enemies” and leaving the I.I. for the end. Reads better.“Two sworn enemies” keeps them mysterious. I think the fact they’re enemies or there’s friction – suggests at any moment one might betray the other or give up the other.I dunno – this is the most deliberately opaque this idea has got thus far ha. It’s lean though.I got rid of some of the specificity (“man who accidentally killed his wife”) to keep it lean. Put back “isolated” to help paint the picture.What do you think?0 Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppkkh 5 Loglines 1 Review 0 Best Reviews 101 Points View Profile kkh Logliner 2019-11-08T11:29:10+10:00Added an answer on November 8, 2019 at 11:29 am Hi darkhorse, The logline makes me want to ask questions. Why are they sworn enemies? Why, if only one of them is accused, are they both fighting off the locals?0 Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppYou must login to can add an answer.
