This is a remake of an old movie, based along the same lines. Samuel L. Jackson plays a cop who makes David Caruso's ex-convict rat out on Nicolas Cage who plays this movies Gangster and does not like that at all. A great thriller, which deserves to be seen by everyone who loves movies. Samuel L. Jackson is great as the cop who needs Nicolas Cage's Gangster. BEWARE: Nicolas Cage models a very dodgy beard!!!!
