When Thomas Archer's happy & successful life is all but ruined following a horrific attack he is presented with a perfect opportunity to exact physical revenge upon the man who caused all his grief. However the immediate consequences of his actions and inactions are much more complicated than he imagined. Who will survive ? Written by
While tied to a chair in an abandoned warehouse, the murder suspect has a large nail driven through his hand. Later, however, this serious injury doesn't bother him when he uses a crowbar to pry open a heavy steel door, effectively fires several weapons, and works himself through many confined areas while trying to escape.

I wasn't completely sure what to expect from this movie given the plot summary, title and no previous user comments.
The movie starts slightly 'within' the story so we are given a few flashbacks at the beginning to let us know why this slightly dishevelled guy is walking with a big black bag (hmmm, I wonder what's in it!). However, although it seemed to start out pretty predictable, it was still intriguing enough for the first 15 minutes or so to keep me watching (that's my usual time limit before I decide to switch off or not).
There are some twists and turns along the way, though the seasoned movie aficionado will probably guess them all anyway (I try not to work it out - I prefer to just sit back and go along with the ride). It does get a little slow in the middle, but then picks up again towards the end.
The acting was fine, particularly Til Schweiger (The Man), who should be doing better in Hollywood than his Filmography suggests.
If you like a bit of suspense and a bit of action without too much thinking, then I can recommend this movie. It wasn't terrible but it won't win any Oscars either. 6/10
