A mechanic learns that his daughter, whom he thinks is at college, has dropped out. He tries to call her but, when someone else answers the phone, he goes to where she's staying and finds a photo of his daughter with another girl, so he looks for her and asks her where his daughter is. She says that his daughter hooked up with a guy who's from New Orleans. So they go there to find him. When some men refuse to answer his questions they beat him but he fights back, which the girl is amazed that he can do. Eventually they find the guy who tells them where his daughter might be. While on their way some men shoot at them. He learns that they work for a man named Omar who wants him. He still tries to find his daughter while Omar sends his best men to get him. Written by

You got an appointment?
No. But he does.
What's that supposed to mean?
It means if I'm not speaking to him in the next two minutes, he's gonna find himself dead. And we'll throw you in with the deal.

No Oscars waiting in the wings, but entertaining anyway
I saw John Cusak, so I figured it would be worth a shot since he hits a winner about 75% of the time. Well--this was one of the 25%, but it was still an entertaining shoot-em-up sort of film. Bruce Willis must have needed the dough because his character could have been played by anybody; he didn't bring any "Bruce Willis" to it. 50-Cent was ridiculous as he is in any movie they stick him in. I don't know who told him he could act, but it was probably the same guy who told him he could rap. Jason Patric doesn't really have that leading man thing going on--he never has had it-- but he was pretty good in this film. The guy's a solid actor, just nothing to write home about. Overall, it was a good, mindless 90 minutes of entertainment with a sketchy plot and an unbelievable premise which means it was better than 80% of the crap coming out of Hollywood today.
