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.

There were way too many holes in the plot to make this movie worth watching for everyone that likes the actors or genre. The only reason I watched the entire movie was because, as a woman, seeing the massive revenge against rapists was very satisfying. One of those rare moments in which the woman isn't continually re-victimized. I thought Oldman's performance was a little more natural than that of Rhames, but his was still decent. I can't say all women would gain anything by seeing rapists tortured. It's dicey. I gave it a 3 out of 10. My feeling is that veterans such as Rhames and Oldman should have seen all of the mistakes in dialog and plot consistency and maybe passed on it altogether. If you're up and bored in the middle of the night while it's on a movie channel, you might as well watch it.
