A hot altercation followed by a gallant rescue gets a lonely screenwriter a front-row seat to a tense backwoods drama when he decides to take in an ex-con drifter. Now, he is bent on making his host a better man. Will this nightmare end?
Jonathan Rhys Meyers,
An ex-special services veteran (Antonio Banderas), down on his luck and desperate for work, takes a job as a security guard at a run-down mall in a rough area of town. On his first night on the job, he opens the doors up to a distraught and desperate young girl who has escaped and fled from a hijacking of the U.S. Marshal motorcade that was transporting her to testify as a trial witness. Hot on her heels is psychopathic hijacker (Sir Ben Kingsley), alongside his resourceful henchmen, who will stop at nothing to extract and eliminate their witness.Written by

It's clear from the furnishings, the mall's setup and the and the presence of numerous staircases instead of escalators, that the film was made in Europe and not the United States. See more »
This movie might be considered a B-movie because of the budget and released straight to DVD, but honestly, it's a really good movie. Antonio Banderas is underrated, and should really be given the chance to go back to mainstream, especially action films.
The movie isn't perfect, and characters could've been fleshed out more but other than that, this is a nice movie to watch on a lazy afternoon on your day off.
The action sequences are great. Ben Kingsley, another underrated actor, was also great.
It's a well-done action movie with a simple story. If you want to be entertained for an hour and 45mins, this is not a bad choice.
