Storyline

Carved from a lifetime of experience that runs the gamut from incarceration to liberation, Dog Eat Dog is the story of three men who are all out of prison and now have the task of adapting themselves to civilian life. The California three strikes law looms over them, but what the hell, they're going to do it, and they're going to do it their way. Troy, an aloof mastermind, seeks an uncomplicated, clean life but cannot get away from his hatred for the system. Diesel is on the mob's payroll and his interest in his suburban home and his nagging wife is waning. The loose cannon of the trio, Mad Dog, is possessed by true demons within, which lead him from one situation to the next. One more hit, one more jackpot, and they'll all be satisfied. Troy constructs the perfect crime and they pull it off, but in the aftermath, they keep finding the law surrounding them wherever they go.

Quotes

Troy: You ever been inside, Reverend? In the joint?
Charles: Yes, sir.
Troy: Well, then you know. Guy who has a past, guy who's made mistakes. They say they forgive you, but they never do. They're always lookin' at ya, tryin' to catch ya at something. All we want... heck, all anybody wants, is justice.

Seriously, Nicholas Cage, is your time over?
13 November 2016 | by johnphilips-beSee all my reviews

I am a fan of Nicholas Cage who believes that his movies are just below the top grade, but enjoyable at most times.. I read the story-line in IMDb and was seriously looking forward to have a good time. Boy, i was wrong. There was no story, no thrills but cheap gun shooting action. I went all the way to write a review as i believe that this review could save someone their 90 minutes. By the way, this is only my 3rd review ever in the last 8 years, the other 2 being positives and this one for the sheer disappointment i had with the movie.

Pls avoid this movie unless you are a blood thirsty movie lover.

Hope this helps!
