In 1960s New York, Walter Stackhouse is a successful architect married to the beautiful Clara who leads a seemingly perfect life. But his fascination with an unsolved murder leads him into a spiral of chaos as he is forced to play cat-and-mouse with a clever killer and an overambitious detective, while at the same time lusting after another woman.
Two corrupt cops set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path. Events, however, are complicated by the arrival of someone who appears to be even more dangerous than they are.
John Michael McDonagh
Across the Southwest United States, dozens of towns in the Mexican borders are being plagued by arms dealers who make a fortune by smuggling guns and ammunition to arm the cartels. Rumoured to be dead, Sheriff Wallace returns as the prodigal son to his hometown in Los Reyes County, Arizona, to replace Leland, the unapologetic, small-town man of the law after a routine check that went terribly wrong and forced him to retire. Soon enough, Wallace will get caught in the middle of a bloody inquiry trying to find out those who struck the profitable deal, while at the same time, a stash of blood-money and a kill list made by the relentless Atticus, the cartel's resilient hit man, threatens the town's peace. From now on, there will be no arresting anymore. Written by

The opening intertitle card refers to "ammunition" and then in the next line says "millions of store bought bullets are now being smuggled into Mexico."
Bullets are a component of an ammunition cartridge. For the remainder of the movie, all smuggling involves loaded cartridges. The correct term in the context of the title card would be "rounds," "cartridges," or "rounds of ammunition." Bullets is incorrect. See more »

I was breathless many times during the viewing of this film, not through excitement, or surprise, but exasperation. How could anyone make such a poor film, insult so many audiences, and still not be aware that his favourite blithering idiot could have done a much better job. It kept disappointing on so many levels, that you could have been forgiven for believing, he was after the worst picture of the century award. Believe me he needn't have tried so hard. It was a blatant copy of several modern westerns of the same genre. It won't be sited for plagiarism, for the simple reason that no one in his right mind, would turn up to court for the fear of derogatory association. From continuity, choppy shot changes, meaningless transition of plot, it had all the ingredients of" Arthurs" burnt cake. On second thoughts he may have been trying to impress his favourite blithering idiot, I have news for him, he walked out after the first reel.
