Two EMT paramedics (Danila Ramirez and Christopher Turner) are hijacked by brother robbers, who have just stolen a fortune and are on the run - however, one of the brothers, Dermot, was shot and is badly injured. The other brother, Austin, will not allow the paramedics to go to a hospital. He insists that the two help his brother.

This film was okay but not without problems. The first thing was, how stupid were the people at the ambulance company that they didn't realize there's a problem when the EMT vehicle never returned after going off shift, and the PMs were unreachable by radio and cell phone? Talk about taking your time - "well, watch it." I'd have plenty to say to dispatch about that when I returned - if I did.

The other thing was the female character, Camilla (Ramirez) has flashbacks showing a past relationship. Unnecessary.

There was some suspense. The acting was decent. One of my favorite actors from the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, Graham Abbey, had a role.
