Trivia

At around three minutes, The Pope (Robert De Niro) says "bat's not always the answer". In The Untouchables (1987), Al Capone (Robert De Niro) pulls out a baseball bat at a dinner party and suddenly beats one of his men to death. See more »

Goofs

Vaughn has no money, hijacks a bus, is on the national news, and suddenly gives a hospital $300,000 and no questions asked - Fact - No hospital would accept that amount of cash without a paper trail or from a person involved with Vaughn who participated in: murder/kidnapping/hijacking a public bus/cop killing/endangering the welfare of others/grand larceny/and more. The whole police force was involved and there is no way this could have gone down and the hospital would have to return the money that they would never had accepted anyway. See more »

Quotes

The Pope: Regrets in death meant you'd lived life wrong. Don't live life wrong.

The best way to describe this is as a more intense John Q. A movie where you can't help but root for the father.
12 December 2015 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"It's not like someone's gonna go crying to the police about someone stealing their dirty cash." Vaughn (Morgan) is struggling financially and things get worse when his sick daughter is endanger of being taken off the transplant list if he doesn't have the money soon. He asks his former boss, a man known as The Pope (De Niro) for a loan and is denied. Left with no options he decides to take the money forcefully, but he didn't expect the getaway to get this out of hand. I had pretty low expectations for this movie, not for any reason but usually these B movies with famous actors tend to only have the big name in it for 5 minutes and the rest is boring and unexciting. This is a rare exception. De Niro has a fair amount of screen time and Morgan is in almost ever scene. The movie is both action packed and emotional. The best way to describe this is as a more intense John Q. A movie where you can't help but root for the father even though what he is doing is illegal. This is a very exciting movie to watch and I was surprised at the quality of it. It's easy to see why this wasn't a big release but as far as a straight to video movie this is one of the best ones I have seen. I recommend this. I give it a B+.
