Jeremy Rush's debut as a writer-director creates a B-grade production with A-grade results!
I've never heard of Jeremy Rush and noticed this is his first full length major film as either a writer and/or director. He accomplished both with great success. He created a B-grade production with A- grade results.
Don't go into this expecting (or comparing it to) another "Transporter" as it doesn't have the huge Hollywood budget, A-list cast or professional production team and backing. Nor is it meant to be a full out action thriller. Instead, it's a neo-noir mix of fast paced action and psychological thriller.
The writing had a few flaws but made up for it with excellent directing and outstanding cinematography (i.e. camera angles/shots)
Frank Grillo nailed his character and I think this was one of his most convincing roles.
I highly recommend this film, especially as a Sunday night pajama and popcorn flick.
A well deserved 9/10 from me.
