A desperate thief has just 12 hours to steal $10 million and save his daughter from his vengeful former partner in this fast-paced action thriller reuniting Nicolas Cage and director Simon West (Con Air, The Expendables 2). Determined to get the payout for a major heist gone awry, a degenerate criminal (Josh Lucas) kidnaps the daughter (Sami Gayle) of his one-time partner-in-crime (Cage), and threatens her life if he doesn't have the money in 12 hours. Now, with the clock ticking and his daughter trapped in a random taxi being driven around New Orleans, the frantic ex-con enlists the help of a former associate (Malin Akerman) to help pull off the heist that will save his little girl's life. Danny Huston and M.C. Gainey also star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
This movie should have been in the theaters. I am not usually a fan of Nicholas Cage because he usually turns in weird performances for straight forward roles. He does not do that here. From start to finish, the movie is tightly written, well-acted and there is plenty of action. The story is a realistic heist movie against the gritty backdrop of New Orleans . I wish more straight-to-video movies were made with this attention to detail.
Looks like the good movies are passing Nicholas Cage and he has to settle for B movies. Has his day passed? This should have been called, "Riding in a trunk and Daddy will save you and you will live happy ever after."
