adrenaline-fueled action thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat
25 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

The story line is not all that original but it's well-made and engaging. There's nothing wrong with rehashed, recycled story lines as long as they are put together with good acting, a good script and good camera work. If you're a fan of Frank Grillo then definitely check this out. Some reviewers complained of the excessive profanity but given the situation he was in, I think anybody would be cursing heavily.

Most of the film takes place in the vehicle with the camera on Grillo. Some viewers might be out off by that. I thought the camera work did a great job of capturing the grimy, urban underbelly of Philly. This movie is right up my alley because I like crime thrillers with seedy, urban atmospheres.
