Storyline

When the moral values of a longtime wetwork black ops agent is tested during his last operation, he receives an unfavorable psych evaluation.

After an ambush and one phone call later, it becomes a complicated fight for their survival. Written by AZSigInt

Quotes

Max: [Meredith holding a gun on him] You're shaking now. You're getting angry. You're letting your emotions get the better of the situation. The adrenalin, it's really kickin' in. What I know? The reason that I'm not shaking is because this is a choice not dictated by emotion. This is logic - pure, simple. My boy over there is rated fourth in the world in the Glock 30. You now what that means? What's it mean...
Derne: It means I could shoot you from Texas.
Max: Now that's of course exaggeration. But the point ...

very watchable if compared to so many lousy movies so far in 2013
16 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

well, guys who gave low scores for this movie better getting off their high horses and at least having some solid feelings where they stood. this movie actually is quite watchable and i wouldn't mind telling you that i'm one of the arrogant, cynical, and hair-splitting picky guys who never had patience to any and all kinda bad movies, yet this one surprisingly surpassed my expectation. john cusack looked quite old in this film, his hairs looked quite stiff and unnatural due to so much hair dye was used that had made his hairs looked so disgusting. his facial features also looked quite messy.....but he did a great job here and malin akeman also performed so well. the screenplay was well crafted and the "panic room" replaced by some military bunker was also not bad at all. this film looked quite low budget but never gave you a B movie feeling and it's quite smart to have limited money well spent and turned a film into a quite watchable suspenseful one. if you by any chance want to watch a film without being foolish and make your money worthwhile, then watch this one, at least it won't let you down too much.
