As homicide detective Thomas Craven investigates the death of his activist daughter, he uncovers not only her secret life, but a corporate cover-up and government collusion that attracts an agent tasked with cleaning up the evidence.
Bo Laramie is a movie star who has finally achieved success. But success comes at a price, in the form of four persistent photographers known as the paparazzi. Using their dishonest methods of getting the money shot regardless of what it takes, they'll stop at nothing in exploiting Bo for every last penny. But when one of their ventures nearly costs Bo's life and that of his family when they cause a car accident and do nothing afterwords except take photos, Bo has finally reached his breaking point. In doing so, Bo decides to exact a crafty and complex revenge on those four who have enjoyed making his life a living hell with his focus on the paparazzi's ring leader, Rex Harper. Written by
Was inspired when Mel Gibson and some celebrities were talking about paparazzi nightmares and Gibson said, "What a great revenge film this would make." He is one of the film's producers. See more »

I found the movie hearkening back to the revenge thrillers of the '70s and '80s.
It moves from point A to point B with little to no surprises, but it's still an enjoyable film. The film actually lived up to the trailer, which made me want to see it.
Cole Hauser carried his role of Bo Laramie well.
Tom Sizemore oozed the right amount of SCUMBAG for the role, but that comes as no surprise to me.
My only real problem was the rather blatant lobotomy they gave Dennis Farina's character. Any detective worth his salt would've instantly made Laramie the prime suspect when the photographers who nearly killed his wife and son turn up dead.
Probably wouldn't buy it on DVD, but I'd definitely see it again.
