But when a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, his brother becomes involved with one of the most violent and ruthless crime rings in the Northeast - a mistake that will cost him everything.

Quotes

Russell Baze: There's nothing wrong with working for a living.
Rodney Baze Jr.: Working for a living? What do you call this, motherfucker?
[shows long scar on his belly]
Rodney Baze Jr.: Is that working for a living? Huh? Is it working for a living when a carried my best friend's legs under this arm, and the rest of him under this arm? I saw a fucking baby with his fucking head cut off. I saw a fucking pile of feet in the middle of the street, and I had to clean it up. I gave my fucking life for my country. That's not work?

Great Action Turns Into a Sleeper
19 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Maybe I was just expecting too much. Having seen the trailer, I was wanting to see this one for a while and excited to finally get an opportunity. It started great - lots of action and let's face it - you really can't go wrong with these actors. They're superb. But.. even great acting couldn't save this one. I found myself clock staring for the whole last hour. The build to the climax was far too long and the climax was certainly the worst part of the film. It was one of those movies where you anticipate the many exciting, different ways the story could play out and when you see how it actually does, you just wish you had spent the night laying on the couch and watching something on Netflix. Wait for it to come out on Redbox. Shouldn't be long.
