The Courier -- In a business that asks no questions, THE COURIER (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), is the best out there, but he wasn't expecting a deal like this. Deliver a briefcase, get a million dollars. Fail, and his family gets killed. What’s the catch?  The briefcase belongs to a killer as elusive as a nightmare, and so feared that the entire Underworld trembles at the mention of his name. And with a new partner (Josie Ho), it’s hard to know who to trust. Hounded by hit men and hustlers, double-dealing feds and double-crossing accomplices, the Courier embarks on an impossible journey that ultimately unravels his own murky past.

Stupid -stupid -stupid, 21 December 2012

Absolutely terrible movie. One STAR is way too much! No one could follow the crazy plot. For instance how does one get permission to land a stolen plane? AND THEN be allowed to take the same plane back to the original departure location!

Mickey Rourke gets worse with each movie. His Elvis impersonation was god awful. And the half baked ending! What was the FBI involvement? What crime did Rourke supposedly commit? What was the femme fatele secret? None of these were answered. And that stupid pointless ending! Where was the kid going? Terrible movie with terrible acting and senseless plot.
