Armed men hijack a New York City subway train, holding the passengers hostage in return for a ransom, and turning an ordinary day's work for dispatcher Walter Garber into a face-off with the mastermind behind the crime.
A newbie guard for an armored truck company is coerced by his veteran coworkers to steal a truck containing $42 million. But a wrinkle in their supposedly foolproof plan divides the group, leading to a potentially deadly resolution.
Uniformed New Orleans PD officer Danny Fisher earns his promotion to detective to his near-rather lucky, albeit brave, arrest of ruthless terrorist arms-dealer Miles Jackson, whose girlfriend Erica Kessen got accidentally killed during the dirty FBI-operation. Exactly a year later, Miles has escaped and blows up Danny's house as foretaste of a Herculean race to accomplish twelve near-impossible tasks against the clock, otherwise his kidnapped wife Molly will be killed. Yet at the end, another master-plan is suspected. Written by
John Cena explained in a interview plus on the commentary track on the DVD that he was looking to do another film after finishing The Marine (2006). This film was pitched to him by producer Josh McLaughlin and John became very interested. He continued that this movie was better than The Marine despite he enjoyed working that film and likes the movie. The main reason this movie because according to Cena was because this movie tells more of a emotional story and that the audience would have a strong connection to the characters. At the same time, the producers also wanted a non-stop PG-13 action film like The Marine. See more »

JIGGLE CAM ALERT: possibly a good movie, but who will ever know?
This could have been a good movie. Hard to say, though.
The owner of the store I rent from believes in customer service. He lets me know which movies he's heard have horrible, amateurish jiggle cam action, such as this one.
He also lets me preview it, to see if I could bear watching it.
This movie failed. Barely 10 minutes in, there is so much strange and horrid camera movement, that any good action shots will clearly be unwatchable. Generally, I find that such movies also have no plot.
This movie gets a 1, as all jiggle cam movies do and should. People wonder why theatre attendance is down, who can blame them when this garbage is what you're expected to pay for?!
