Storyline

Self-exiled somewhere in the dusty landscapes on the outskirts of Los Angeles, John Link--a rugged former convict, and now, a tattoo artist struggling to stay sober--sees his quasi-orderly life turn upside down, when he receives a desperate phone call from his estranged daughter, Lydia. On the run from a ruthless Mexican drug cartel, John and Lydia must navigate through a dangerous world of frail allegiances and merciless cut-throats, as they seek shelter in an inhospitable city. Can the grizzled father save his teenage daughter from this nightmare? Written by Nick Riganas

Nice Return for Mel.....
26 August 2016 | by daffystruckSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. The story was a little convenient (that's all I can say without spoiling), but I was pleasantly surprised. Mel seemed at the top of his game or very close to it. William H Macy was perfect and would have liked to see more of him. He is always a plus to the cast no matter what the movie. He really is a pleasure to watch. Erin Moriarty showed a good emotional range. The Villains were menacing enough and posed a valid threat. I appreciated the fact that this movie wasn't using nudity and a lot of sleazy humor. (one naked mannequin, or blowup doll in the background) Its nice to see a classic action/drama movie reminiscent of the 80s/90s. If you were ever a fan of Mel Gibson's, Definitely Check this one out. :-)
