Construction company owner John Matthews learns that his estranged son, Jason, has been arrested for drug trafficking. Facing an unjust prison sentence for a first time offender courtesy of mandatory minimum sentence laws, Jason has nothing to offer for leniency in good conscience. Desperately, John convinces the DEA and the opportunistic DA Joanne Keeghan to let him go undercover to help make arrests big enough to free his son in return. With the unwitting help of an ex-con employee, John enters the narcotics underworld where every move could be his last in an operation that will demand all his resources, wits and courage to survive.

One of the best captivating, action packed movies!
Dwayne "the rock" Johnson hands down did an amazing job portraying the
father who would go to any length to save his son! I wasn't expecting
this movie to be this good but it had me. I wanted to immediately know
what was going to happen next. Although this movie doesn't seem so
realistic it is very intense and you want to know how each scene is
going to turn out. If you are looking for a good action packed drama
then this movie is definitely for you. I would recommend to go see this
movies while it's out in theaters. It is by far a great entertaining
movie and the characters believability in the movie is great! Although
if you are a critic on films which aren't realistically possible then
maybe this isn't for you. But overall I would give the rocks
performance in this film an A.
