Based on the 1995 novel of the same name by real-life ex-criminal Edward Bunker, the Cleveland-set Dog Eat Dog centres on utterly irredeemable ne’er-do-well ex-cons Troy (Nicolas Cage), Mad Dog (Willem Dafoe) and their heavy hitter Diesel (The Walking Dead's Christopher Matthew Cook) who take on the terrible task of kidnapping a dangerous gangster’s one-year-old baby! However, unlike with Cage’s signature (also ex-con) role in the Coen Brothers’ Raising Arizona, said infant abduction does not at all go as planned, resulting in our repugnant protagonists going on the run from the law and from the gangster baby-daddy in question. What ensues is a wanton spree of brutal bloodletting and body-dropping.
