Martine offers Terry a lead on a foolproof bank hit on London's Baker Street. She targets a roomful of safe deposit boxes worth millions in cash and jewelry.

Clyde Shelton's family is brutally murdered. The ones responsible are caught. However, because of improper procedure, the D.A., Nick Rice only has circumstantial evidence.

Ten years later, the one who was convicted is being executed but something goes wrong; his execution goes awry and he suffers. They learn that someone tampered with the machine. And the other one is found dead, killed in a gruesome manner. Rice suspects Shelton, so he has him picked up. At first, Shelton agrees to a plea agreement with Rice but changes his mind.

Who might that be?
Someone who does some really nasty shit so we can live the American Dream.

Movie starts off strong. Gerald Butler is the new Russell Crowe/Mel Gibson type lead guy. The movie plays out like the first SAW movie when it should have been more like a remake of DeathWish.Jamie Fox was a good rival for him. A very entertaining movie and was a fun roller-coaster. By the way, nobody walked out when I was there. Too stiff, no emotion not even toward his own family. The ending ruined it for me with its formula Hollywood cliché. It was an unnecessary way to take the cheap way out. Again the end could have been better though the movie was perfect till then.Has a very original plot. Go for the action junkie in you not the devil critic
