It's refreshing to see slower, quieter, more realistic films such as this. 'Blue Ruin' is not a typical 'revenge' story. The reasonings for the vengeance are found through progression. But that's not the focus. The intent here is to show the effects of such acts. No matter how you go about it, no outcome will be for the better. The unpredictable plot leads to some tense situations. The narrative flows naturally smooth. Easily watchable and also quite engaging.
