Storyline

Lee Ray Oliver grew up from abused kid to sociopath, inevitably condemned to death, but wakes up in the morgue after the 'lethal' injection. Dr. Michael Copeland offers him a choice: the real killer drug or 'volunteering' as life-long test person for his pharmaceutic experiment, Anagress, meant to suppress violent tendencies but side-effects unknown. After vicious escape attempts, Lee Ray finally develops genuine remorse and tries to make-up with Gary Caputo, who Lee shot in the head, leaving him mentally a child. Brother Bill Caputo's hate for ruining both of their lives is however redoubled, with tragic consequences. Written by KGF Vissers

Unusual Movie Deserves More Credit
22 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I just saw this film in a cinema in Bahrain, I think 2 years after it came out, or rather didn't come out in cinemas, as it went straight to DVD. When I think of all the rubbish that gets into the cinema, that's just insulting.

I saw it 'cos of Defoe and Liotta, 2 of the greatest actors in cinema today. Yes, the film had some cheesy moments, but this is still a good film. The acting from Defoe and Liotta is generally excellent, and this is a good story, though it could have done with some better editing. Stephen Rea does a good job as Dafoe's boss, and whilst the ending is a bit predictable, it's a reasonable way to spend 2 hours or so.

The alternative is watching something by Adam Sandler or Ben Stiller, none of which goes straight to video, and shows why the movie business is sometimes the craziest business in the world.

Watch 2 great actors doing what they do best and enjoy that movies like this still get made. It's really quite good.
