Ray Keene, a father who wants to redeem himself in the eyes of his son, is trying to bring Carden, a world-class assassin to justice. All the while, he must protect his son and evade the assassin's team who are methodically hunting them down in the wilderness.

When this film first appeared as a STV title I was sort of shocked since this packs some start power in John Cusak and Morgan Freeman but as you start to watch the film you begin to see a less than stellar script which is why I guess it never really got a push in theaters. I am not saying this is a total waste, in fact most people just looking for a few hours of entertainment are going to find this to be a very good good as it does pack enough action and suspense to keep your attention span way up. Plus the fact you have two excellent actors in the lead takes the film up another level from what it would of been with a standard B-cast. Over-all this is not a bad film but it had so much more potential if the script would of been worked on a little more but we might be just expecting too much because of the star power here. All the flaws aside I felt in the end the movie was enjoyable enough and it kept a great pace as well. This Blu-ray release brings the viewing experience up as well since the film is shot out-doors the landscapes are that much more impressive and almost take on a life of their own. The Blu-ray DVD comes pack with Special Features that include:
