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.

When Eddie is first taken into the security control room at the mall, the digital clock on the wall consistently changes between shots, going up and down. In one shot, the clock reads 8:48 and in the next shot a few seconds later, it has changed to 8:47. See more »
Entertaining film with elements of self-redemption thrown in
Enjoyed the film. There were elements of Assault on Precinct 13, with a sample of the theme music added in at one point too. Banderas was OK but Kingsley's accent varied from Irish to Scottish at times. Not a bad way to spend 90 minutes and better some would have you believe. Action was just right and there were some unintentional funny moments too. Characters were enjoyable and the undertones were a bit obvious at times. Enjoy it with the family.
