Jerry and Rachel are two strangers thrown together by a mysterious phone call from a woman they have never met. Threatening their lives and family, she pushes Jerry and Rachel into a series of increasingly dangerous situations, using the technology of everyday life to track and control their every move.
Now out of prison but still disgraced by his peers, Gordon Gekko works his future son-in-law, an idealistic stock broker, when he sees an opportunity to take down a Wall Street enemy and rebuild his empire.
Jerry Shaw is an amiable slacker with an over-achieving twin brother. After his twin dies in an accident, strange things happen to Jerry at a dizzying pace: a fortune shows up in his bank account, weapons are delivered to his flat, and a voice on his cell phone tells him the police are on their way. Jerry follows the voice's instructions, and soon he and a woman he's never met are racing through the city, on to a plane, and eventually to the Pentagon, chased by the FBI. She is Rachel Holloman, a single mom; the voice has threatened her son's death if she doesn't cooperate. The voice seems to know everything. Who is behind it, what is being planned, and why Jerry and Rachel? Written by
The distinctive church seen in the Chicago establishing shot (around 8 minutes in) is St. James Catholic Church in the 2900 block of South Wabash Ave. The building a block south of the church which is passed by the "L" train as the shot ends is the Arthur S Keating Sports Center, also on South Wabash.

It had potential...it had energy and it had a pretty decent cast and to some degree a good story concept...
...but somehow the story got mangled and butchered and Hollywood execs decided that Hollywood has to be involved more than it was and hence - there goes the logic and here come the absurd explosions and illogical action sequences.
I really looked forward to seeing this because well, it was something along the lines like I am writing...I however am going 10 steps beyond this story by making mine much more realistic by not adding so many improbable and idiotic actions.
A steady movie which seems to go offtrack by making too many actions just too absurd and retarded.
So much potential and so much potential lost.
