Retired cop Eddie Burns gave 15 years and the use of his left arm to the Reno homicide squad. When his wayward sister, Kassie, goes missing Eddie Burns finds himself subjected to a fiendish and ingenious campaign of revenge by the mysterious Charlie Strom. In order to protect his sister, Eddie - disabled, betrayed and alone - journeys into the heart of his own darkness: where he discovers that the reason for his ordeal lies in his own past sins and those of his adversary Charlie Strom.Written by
Gary Oldman described this as 'the worst movie ever made'. He did this film because he had taken time off work and had just gone through a divorce. See more »

[quoting the opening and closing lines of John Donne's sonnet "Death Be Not Proud"]
Death be not proud, though some have called thee / Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;... One short sleep past, we wake eternally, / And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.

Considering the caliber of both the main actors it is difficult to understand why they both decided to take this project on. The story is neither new or gripping and if you have seen Gary Oldman before playing a bad guy ( Does he play any other character?!)then this will be nothing new to you.He is rapidly being typecast . Ving Rhames comes out of this better because at least his character has some substance. If you are expecting a classic i'm afraid you are going to be dissapointed. For Ving and Gary fans only. 6 out of 10.
