An undercover Detroit cop navigates a dangerous neighborhood that's surrounded by a containment wall with the help of an ex-con in order to bring down a crime lord and his plot to devastate the entire city.
In New Orleans just before Hurricane Katrina hits, a pregnant woman gives birth prematurely. She dies and her baby is in critical condition. The baby has to be kept in a neonatal incubator. When the hurricane strikes, all the power goes out and everyone in the hospital leaves. But the baby's father stays because the baby can't be moved so he has to take care of his baby by making sure the ventilator stays on. And because there's no power, the only power source is generator that he has to crank every few minutes. So he has to stay awake while waiting for someone to come for them. Written by
This father of the year charged the battery at least 1280 times. That's over 5200 cranks on the generator handle! See more »
The Adrenaline shot Nolan Hayes takes in the arm would have worked almost instantaneously. That's what they're designed to do, much like an EPI pen. If v a doctor had a patient in cardiac arrest he or she would not be afforded the luxury of the 1:50 seconds wait that Nolan waited for his Adrenaline hit. Granted heart patients have the drug administered in a different way, but still, a shot of pure Adrenaline would be a fast acting sensation, particularly with an emaciated system, hypertension, and a faster pulse. Further, when forced to protect his baby, he uses the drug on an intruder and voilà. Instant results. See more »
I watched this movie weeks before Paul Walker had passed and thoroughly enjoyed it. I must admit I've always been a fan of his. Yet I can indisputably say without being biased, that he played this role with excellence.
OK, so the move was not a fast paced action or romantic, date flick, but it was a well written realistic Drama / Thriller.
While the ending may have been somewhat predictable. The rest of the film with it's characters and plots certainly was not. You will find quite a few surprises.
I am sure it will do well if/when it's released in theaters around the world. What a great way to pay tribute to him by releasing it to as many screens as they can. At least I really hope they do. If you can't go to see it. I'd say it's worth renting anyway.
