John is taken on a murder-fueled ride by a mysterious stranger that transforms the weak-willed, disillusioned husband and father into a desperate hero willing to go to any length to protect his family.
The real estate agent John is down on his luck: he has been just fired from his job; his home has been sent into foreclosure; and his marriage is going downhill. On his birthday, his wife Joanie has an argument with him and she takes their children walking. Out of the blue, stranger Richie knocks on his front door and asks for help, since his car is not starting. John helps to push the car but hurts his leg, and Richie offers to take him to the hospital. Richie is inconvenient and along their journey, John realizes that the man is a psychopath killer that commits a spree killing everywhere they go. Then, Richie releases John on the road and tells him that he will pay a visit to Joanie and his children. Meanwhile, the police detectives Frank and his partner Latisha Rogers suspect that John is the serial-killer and they pressure Joanie to tell where John might be. Further, they discover that John and Joanie are cheating each other with a colleague and with a worker respectively. Written by

When I first went into watch this film, i was expecting it to be another Samuel L. Jackson Changing Lanes sequel. But a surprisingly convincing effort from the rest of the cast(Luke Wilson, Leslie Bibb), helped turn this movie into a great thriller. I haven't seen Seen SLJ play such a deep role since Black Snake Moan. In the film, Luke Wilson plays a Middle Aged man that has just lost everything, and accidentally meets Samuel L. Jackson who needs help starting his car. What starts out as a seemingly random course of events, turns out to be something much more sinister. Anyway if you watch this,I guarantee you will agree that it was well worth the ride!
