I'm giving you one more chance to walk away from this.
You're giving *me* one more chance?
That's right. As long as you're coming after Michael, I'm coming after you. Walk away , Shawn.
Walk away to what, Jimmy? Huh? Ain't got nothing left to walk back to anymore.
This is between you and me. Leave my son out of it.
Then we do like you always said. We cross that line together. Right now...

One of the better action movies I've seen in a while. Great characters - great acting and interesting story line. I really liked this film and I don't understand why this movie does not get better reviews. unlike a lot of the popular glitzy action films, this one leaves a memory of what it was really about. The camera work was great and incorporated some of the best and most believable action scenes I have experienced. The language was fitting and not overpopulated with Fbombs. The story line is easy to follow. The soundtrack is appropriate without a lot of unnecessary crashing and banging, or a way over the top, or overpowering soundtrack. Definitely a good film.
