Action filled "John Q" type movie thats almost as good. A must see movie for fathers. Makes you root for the bad guy I say A-, 11 April 2012
Author: Tony Heck ( from United States

"You got a choice to make. You can finish this job and go to jail and your kid will get the best care any kid could have, or you cannot finish this job, you still go to jail and your kid will die. What are you gonna do?" Scott Kane (Fuller) is a reformed criminal who is trying to live his life straight for once. After his seven year old son has a heart attack and Kane has no way to pay for the transplant on his own he decides to do one last job. After being double crossed he risks everything to save his son. Based on the preview I honestly expected this to be OK but a type of made for TV movie. While it did have the feel of a glorified made for TV movie this was very, very good. I loved "John Q" and I would call this one a more intense action version of that movie. Unlike most low-budget action movies this one really sucks you in and makes you root for the "bad guy". Being a father I can see where Kane is coming from and found myself really pulling for him throughout. Overall, not quite as good as "John Q." but this came as close as you can. I give it an A-.
