A hot altercation followed by a gallant rescue gets a lonely screenwriter a front-row seat to a tense backwoods drama when he decides to take in an ex-con drifter. Now, he is bent on making his host a better man. Will this nightmare end?
Jonathan Rhys Meyers,
An ex-special services veteran (Antonio Banderas), down on his luck and desperate for work, takes a job as a security guard at a run-down mall in a rough area of town. On his first night on the job, he opens the doors up to a distraught and desperate young girl who has escaped and fled from a hijacking of the U.S. Marshal motorcade that was transporting her to testify as a trial witness. Hot on her heels is psychopathic hijacker (Sir Ben Kingsley), alongside his resourceful henchmen, who will stop at nothing to extract and eliminate their witness.Written by

When Eddie is first taken into the security control room at the mall, the digital clock on the wall consistently changes between shots, going up and down. In one shot, the clock reads 8:48 and in the next shot a few seconds later, it has changed to 8:47. See more »
One wouldn't imagine that Banderas would take a role like this but he pulls it off.Combat skills are convincing enough and the story line is predictable but entertaining.The budget is not huge given that entire film was shot in one location but the videography was nicely done.I would have preferred a different ending altogether but the film was enjoyable and worth the time.
