An undercover Detroit cop navigates a dangerous neighborhood that's surrounded by a containment wall with the help of an ex-con in order to bring down a crime lord and his plot to devastate the entire city.
In New Orleans just before Hurricane Katrina hits, a pregnant woman gives birth prematurely. She dies and her baby is in critical condition. The baby has to be kept in a neonatal incubator. When the hurricane strikes, all the power goes out and everyone in the hospital leaves. But the baby's father stays because the baby can't be moved so he has to take care of his baby by making sure the ventilator stays on. And because there's no power, the only power source is generator that he has to crank every few minutes. So he has to stay awake while waiting for someone to come for them.Written by
One of Paul Walker's last movies, he passed away two weeks before this movie was released in the USA. See more »
The baby's health parameters on the monitor can be seen during nearly the whole film. It shows the blood pressure is 120/80 and the pulse rate is 72, which are good parameters only for an average adult person. A newborn's physiological parameters for blood pressure is approximately 75/50 and the baby's pulse should be way over 100, approximately 140. Especially in this case, where the baby is considered a premature infant. See more »
I watched this movie weeks before Paul Walker had passed and thoroughly enjoyed it. I must admit I've always been a fan of his. Yet I can indisputably say without being biased, that he played this role with excellence.
OK, so the move was not a fast paced action or romantic, date flick, but it was a well written realistic Drama / Thriller.
While the ending may have been somewhat predictable. The rest of the film with it's characters and plots certainly was not. You will find quite a few surprises.
I am sure it will do well if/when it's released in theaters around the world. What a great way to pay tribute to him by releasing it to as many screens as they can. At least I really hope they do. If you can't go to see it. I'd say it's worth renting anyway.
