In Long Beach, there is a turf war going on. Firefighter Jeremy Coleman (Josh Duhamel) is a witness to a murder and has been placed in the witness protection program where he falls in love with a US Marshall (Rosario Dawson). Bruce Willis plays local police chief Mike Cella who would like very much to see crime boss David Hagan (Vincent D'Onofrio) go to jail.

While in the program, the bad guys find out where Jeremy is located and threaten to kill everyone Jeremy knows and their family. Jeremy goes vigilante in order to save himself and everyone else. He also gives us overwhelming clues about the ending.

I liked the climax of the film, in spite of the fact I knew it was coming from 30 minutes into the film. The script was overly predictable and the dialouge wasn't moving. Vinnie Jones gives us a brief bad guy, and likewise 50 Cent wasn't on screen that long. I would have liked to have seen more of Willis in the film.

Might work as a 99 cent rental for some people. Not a keeper.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, implied sex scene, no nudity. Torture. Bullet holes in the head.

Okay, so ‘revenge films’ are nothing new. Ever since Charles ‘Paul Kersey’ Bronson lost his family to muggers, normally peaceful citizens have been taken to the streets in films to dish out a helping of vigilante justice. This is one of those films.

Here we have a firefighter who witnesses a gangland hit and has to go into the witness protection scheme. Trouble is, the people he’s set to testify against find out where he’s hiding, therefore forcing him to ‘get them’ before they get him.

And it plays out as you might imagine (assuming you’ve seen any of the other hundred or so revenge movies). You may notice I’m not going into great detail about the storyline. That’s because there isn’t really much to give away in terms of plot. It’s just a revenge film. And it’s not that bad. It’s the sort of film you rent over buying and probably shouldn’t pay too much attention to the minor plot holes here and there.

I didn’t mind it and certainly didn’t think I’d wasted an hour and a half watching it. However, the thing I was hoping for was to see the firefighter using his firefighting skills to flambé his tormenters. In fact... I thought that was the whole point of the film, i.e. he uses what he knows to start fires with which to exact his revenge. As it turns out he just buys a gun and shoots them.

Oh, and Bruce Willis is in it, too. But then it was never released in the cinema and Bruce seems to have a clause in his contract that states he must never appear in a film that’s actually given a theatrical release.

Anyway, as I say, rent this before you buy. It’s not bad (especially for a straight-to-DVD movie), but could have been a little better.

Very predictable! Annoying soundtracks playing in the background almost the entire movie, even when they are talking! The ending was so dumb...I mean you have to be pretty stupid to walk into a building flooded with fuel, right?. And the final scene when he says "trust me, do exactly as I say and you will stay alive" Then picks her up and walks out the building?? Just very poor monotonous script and an extremely annoying movie. Will suit some I guess..

Judging from Josh Duhamels shower scene in this film alone that is. Some neat explosions and some sweet gun play add to the films watch ability. Plus you get the uber HOT Eric Winter to boot. What's NOT to like?

By Mr. S. Storey TOP 500 REVIEWER on 9 April 2014
Format: DVD
This curious little thriller has plenty to like about it. The premise is that of a fire fighter witnessing a killing whilst at the local store. He then goes into protective custody because the bad guy is well connected. It's fine in the main but it suffers from some stilted pacing and frequently moves up a gear, only to crumble in the scenes that follow. The first assassinatio,n attempt is a good example; it combines some really decent action with excellent cinematography, those rifle shots look great across the open field but the script then loses momentum giving way to a really flabby bit with the witness protection guys. Josh Duhamel is well scripted and makes an appealing lead. When his situation seems hopeless, he decides to take the fight to the bad guys and in doing so his character is called upon to do some extreme things. He's portrayed as being out of his depth at times, he's scripted as an everyman and not a superhero which lends to his appeal and gives him a sense of isolation. Vincent D'Onofrio puts in a really menacing turn, he's very good and his performance reminded me of his work in full metal jacket. In contrast, Bruce Willis is fast becoming the poor mans Bruce Willis! He phones in another bit part performance. Rosario Dawson makes an appealing love interest whilst bizarrely Vinnie Jones has a handful of lines as a token henchman. Staging the finale in a burning building was always gong to happen but it's done well. All things considered I enjoyed its lukewarm thrills.
