When his mentor is taken captive by a disgraced Arab sheik, a killer-for-hire is forced into action. His mission: kill three members of Britain's elite Special Air Service responsible for the death of his sons.
A young man receives a call on his cellular phone from a woman who says she's been kidnapped, and thinks she's going to be killed soon, along with her husband and son who the kidnappers have gone after next. The catch? She doesn't know where she is... and his cell phone battery might go dead soon. Written by
Inspired partly by the LAPD Rampart scandals in 1999. See more »

Mom, will you still be a science teacher when I get into high school?
Hmm... You never know. Why?

Wow, this movie was a load of carp. The storyline was that of something cut out of a cereal box. The possibility of someone knowing how to configure a broken phone board to get in contact with the outside world, is what 1 in a million. The actual chance that someone would listen to a women that calls your number and starts babbling on about a kidnapping is astronomically, insignificantly small. The lawyer of the film just brushed off Jessica, the mother of the film, and said, "one, shut up" and "two, get off my phone". The character that was chosen to answer the phone had to be the most helpless, low self-esteem, sorrowful person that has, in this case, been dumped by an amazingly good looking chick. Plus, the idea that a guy with such simpleton-like obedience could beat highly trained cops that do this for a living is pretty much ridiculous. I'm a movie buff and watch a lot of movies, I never comment on them due to the fact that I'm to lazy to do so. But, in this case, this movie was so ridiculous that I couldn't let it sway.
What is the movie industry coming to, first a movie about a guy and a phone, and soon a movie about some people stranded in the desert rebuilding a plane. Common, I could watch "Purple Rain" and get ten times more enjoyment from it.
