A real gripper of a furious film
Paul Maguire (Nicolas Cage) is a respectable business man and loving father and husband, but he used to be killer when he was in his teens. His gang of buddies must reunite with him to source out who killed his teenage daughter one night while he Paul is out. The search leads him to the Russian Mafia, but he is mistaken when he thinks they are the culprits who killed his daughter. In fact, the killer can be found right in his own neighbourhood and in his own home the night her life was taken. A true twist of plot suspense with great casting. But there is one glitch: Danny Glover plays the chief detective, and he looks worn out. Too many cop parts for the law-abiding enforcer/actor. Directed by Paco Cabezas, the film has an edgy Latino feel for sure, even though it’s about Irish guys and Russians.
