Elevator Pitch Nick is a criminal who specialises in making plans for heists and selling them, but when one goes wrong he finds that he is being hunted by a corrupt police squad and some mafia hitmen. He is forced to go on the run with his estranged teenage daughter, forcing the two of them to co-operate in order to survive.
Content There are a number of gun battles and one or two explosions, and a couple of executions by the bad guys. Tension at various times as the pair, or one of them, is captured by either the police or the mafia. Numerous arguments between father and daughter. No nudity or sex, but a bit of people rubbing up against each other once. Some drinking of beer.
A View This was virtually straight to video, and got 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, but only seven people reviewed it. Despite the negative reviews this is not a bad film. I’m not saying you’d go to the cinema to see it, but it occupies an hour and a half pretty well for little or no payment.
