For a movie that has Jason Staham and Sofia Vergara(even though she just appeared at the begging) it could be a lot better. The story is in Las Vegas, which is a great city for movies, and for this one in particular it's suits it. The story is about a guy named Nick Wild(Jason Staham) that is a hired man to protect you whenever you want, his goal is to reach 500000$ so that he can go on vacation's in Corsega for 5 years.But something is going to speed up his ''dream''. He is not normal bodyguard has he does not use guns, his only weapons are his fists, and objects that he finds. As I said the movie could be a lot better, that because, even though the part where he doesn't use guns is quite interesting, the storyline isn't I rate this movie a 5 out of 10, i recommend you to see it if there is not anything more appealing in the cinema(My case). It is not bad but it is not good, so, that's the reason why i rate this movie a 5.
