After a robbery gone wrong, Camilla, a veteran paramedic, and her partner Gerry are hijacked and forced to tend to the gunman's badly wounded brother. Held at gunpoint in the back of the rig, Camilla must perform dangerous medical procedures in order to try and save the young man's life, while Gerry drives around the city evading the police. But even if she is successful, can she trust the criminals to honor their word and let them go? Camilla realizes she may have to sacrifice the life she is trying to save in order to save herself and her partner. Written by Barcarie Mitchell

Not a Bad Movie
24 December 2016 | by bigbangtheory57See all my reviews

This is a pretty good movie, especially for people that enjoy medical dramas like Grey's Anatomy.

The acting of the main female EMT is pretty solid, as well as the acting of the two criminals. The non wounded criminal knows his role in the situation and is convincingly motivated by his wounded brother. The male EMT is choppy at times but all-around okay.

As the lead, she does very well. She tries to balance making it out of the situation with giving proper medical care. The action seems to flow very well, with the events seeming to unfold in a convincing manner.

I don't understand the hate given by some of the other reviewers, it's not the best movie in the world but for an evening movie to watch with some popcorn, it's not a bad pick at all.
