An ex-special services veteran (Antonio Banderas), down on his luck and desperate for work, takes a job as a security guard at a run-down mall in a rough area of town. On his first night on the job, he opens the doors up to a distraught and desperate young girl who has escaped and fled from a hijacking of the U.S. Marshal motorcade that was transporting her to testify as a trial witness. Hot on her heels is psychopathic hijacker (Sir Ben Kingsley), alongside his resourceful henchmen, who will stop at nothing to extract and eliminate their witness.Written by

When the protagonist calls his wife the dial tone heard on the phone is clearly not the dial tone that would be heard in the United States. It is a European dial tone indicating that the film was set, but not made, in the United States. See more »
Simple plot but incredible execution with impressive performance by Banderas
Simply not a home alone movie but more of a assault on precinct 13 set in a mall. The negative reviews simply don't do this movie justice. I saw this movie after Transformers 5 with my 12 year old and wow it was refreshing and entertaining from start to end the complete opposite of Transformers for which I switched off after 25 minutes and was on the phone searching through eBay adds. Lol.
Great execution by director and an impressive performance by all the cast. Very impressed by Antonio Banderas who shows his worth. He has returned to his roots from when I first saw him in desperado. Again good casting all round and acting was above par.
The story is simple with good pace and execution. Good TV movie that keeps you wanting till the end. I have reviewed this 9/10 just because of the budget and it's really made for TV
