The Mustang Nicolas Cage drives is the same paint scheme, gun-metal gray with black racing stripes, as Eleanor, the 1967 Mustang GT500 which is a major part in the remake of Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000). Which also stars Cage. See more »
During the chase scene with the motorbike, the car's passenger window is both closed (up) and open (down). See more »
Generic but had a few twists to keep it interesting enough to keep you watching. Cage fans will probably enjoy this more then me.
"No child should have to pay for their father's sins." Paul Maguire (Cage) lived a life of crime and violence but has since reformed and is straight. He is doing everything he can to make a life free of violence and his past and just raise his daughter the right way. One night when he is out he is told that there was a break-in in his house and his daughter was taken. The police begin to investigate but to Paul they aren't doing enough, so he takes it upon himself to find who did this and make them pay. It's no surprise by now that you know how I feel about Nicolas Cage. I do have to say though that this is one of the better ones he has come out with lately (for me at least). I'm not exactly sure why I think this was a good one because the movie was a little generic and the idea has been redone a million times. There are some twists in this to make it seem fresh and they do work but again this is nothing all that original. It could be because of my dislike for Cage and my very low expectations for this but it was better then I expected it to be. The fact that it's so overdone makes it hard to review but I will say that if you are a fan of Nicolas Cage you will probably enjoy this more then me. Overall, generic but had a few twists to keep it interesting enough to keep you watching. I give this a B-.
