Format: DVD
Pauli (Nicolas Cage) is a former gangster who has gone straight and keeps Grecian Formula 14 in business. His daughter (Aubrey Peeples) goes missing and is later found dead. She was killed by a Russian Tokarev. In an attempt to find the killer the retired Pauli and two friends turn the town upside down, causing havoc to the Russian mafia.

Danny Glover has a small role as the policeman investigating the case. Rachel Nichols plays the part of his young second wife who loves the daughter as her own.

The location appears to be a small city, one where you wouldn't expect such a heavy influence of Russian mafia. There are numerous flashbacks to an event they believe is somehow connected to the present. The film had scenes that worked well, but the overall plot felt uneven, with an ending that made me feel I wasted my time watching the film.

Will have camp value second time through knowing the ending.

Format: DVD
Within fifteen minutes of the film being on, you will instantly think that you are watching another Taken clone. Man with a shady past has now gone straight, doing alright for himself, and has a daughter who looks up to him (and a wife who looks like Bridget Fonda circa 1993).

The daughter gets kidnapped, so Cage enlists the help of two old buddies, who have a connection with Cages past....

This didn't bode well for me, as I am a huge Cage fan, and the last time he made a Taken clone was Stolen, which was his career low, and a blooming awful movie.

But then something happens in the film that you wouldn't expect from a standard movie in this sub-genre, and turns the film on its head.

Saying that there is nothing new on offer here is an understatement, it ticks the cliché book in all the perfunctory places, people get tortured, people get double crossed, there is a cop on Cages side, you know the drill.

But Cage puts in a very good performance, and doesn't just phone it in, as you'd expect from a movie like this, I guess Joe taught him a few lessons.

He's restraint for the majority of the movie, but if you are looking for the mad eyed Cage we all know and love from Wild At Heart, and Deadfall, you get a glimpse of him here.

Its a film that isn't going to win him any new fans, people who mock his hat instead of his performances will balk at this, but if you always look forward to seeing the actors next movie, you'll enjoy it.

Also known as 'Rage'
