A frustrated man decides to take justice into his own hands after a plea bargain sets one of his family's killers free. He targets not only the killer but also the district attorney and others involved in the deal.
Lara Brennan is arrested for murdering her boss with whom she had an argument. It seems she was seen leaving the scene of the crime and her fingerprints were on the murder weapon. Her husband, John would spend the next few years trying to get her released, but there's no evidence that negates the evidence against her. And when the strain of being separated from her family, especially her son, gets to her, John decides to break her out. So he does a lot of research to find a way. Written by
The "bump key" technique used by Russell Crowe's character does actually work as portrayed on older and cheaper (non-antibump) cylinder locks. However, the car lock tennis ball technique has been busted as a myth on MythBusters: Viewer's Special (2007) See more »
When John and Lara bypass the zoo exit they continue on the Highland Park Bridge. Shortly after, after the car avoids a truck and spins out of control, they come to a stop. As they exit the vehicle, you can clearly see Chestnut Ridge mountain in the background putting them on toll Route 43 outside of Uniontown, PA. This is over an hour-and-a-half from the Pittsburgh zoo. See more »

This has to be one of the best films I have watched of late. Everything you would wish it to be. Very tense at times and keeps you on edge. Great acting from Russell Crowe and the story is very smart and gripping. Not as predictable as some films seem to be when using a similar storyline to this. Very entertaining all the way through from start to finish with no gaps which is always good for a film that exceeds 2 hours in duration. A very different performance from Crowe which we don't offer see, but be played it very well, and very powerful. Definitely a must watch. Don't wait around for this one, I would strive to watch it straight away for those that haven't done so yet.
