After a prison riot, former-Captain Nascimento, now a high ranking security officer in Rio de Janeiro, is swept into a bloody political dispute that involves government officials and paramilitary groups.
A wave of kidnappings has swept through Mexico, feeding a growing sense of panic among its wealthier citizens, especially parents. In one six-day period, there were twenty-four abductions, leading many to hire bodyguards for their children. Into this world enters John Creasy, a burned-out ex-CIA operative/assassin, who has given up on life. Creasy's friend Rayburn brings him to Mexico City to be a bodyguard to nine-year-old Pita Ramos, daughter of industrialist Samuel Ramos and his wife Lisa. Creasy is not interested in being a bodyguard, especially to a youngster, but for lack of something better to do, he accepts the assignment. Creasy barely tolerates the precocious child and her pestering questions about him and his life. But slowly, she chips away at his seemingly impenetrable exterior, his defenses drop, and he opens up to her. Creasy's new-found purpose in life is shattered when Pita is kidnapped. Despite being seriously wounded during the kidnapping, he vows to kill anyone ... Written by

Mariana (Rachel Ticotin) tells Creasy that Fuentes is more heavily guarded than the president and travels by motorcade. Ostensibly, this is because he fears assassination attempts; it would stand to reason that since he has money and influence that the car he travels in would be armored and with bullet resistant glass. Creasy easily shoots through the car to wound his driver and puts several holes in the windshield. See more »
That's "Bird" Emilio forgot to take him with when he left.
My last bodyguard. He drove me to school in the morning and picked me up in the afternoon
I'm here for you?
In between you can take Mum shopping and to lunch. Does that sound all right, Mr. Creasy?

This has to be one of the best, if not the best film i have seen for a very, very long time. Had enough action to satisfy an fan, and yet the plot was very good. I really enjoyed the film,and had me hooked from start to finish.
Added blood and gore in there, but brought the realistic nature of what happens to the front of the film, and even had a tear jerker ending for many people i should think.
It is a must watch for anyone. Seen many reviews, slating the film, but to be fair, most the films that get bad reviews, turn out to be some of the best. this proves it once again.
Rent this film, buy this film, just go out and watch this film. You will not be disappointed.
