Joe Lynch directs Frank Grillo, Anthony Mackie and Marcia Gay Harden in this buddy action comedy where a nurse must keep an injured mercenary alive to rescue his kidnapped wife.
An unoriginal film that takes place in a cartoonish, soft-play world. For every nice shot, there are moments that promise a level of action which is never really delivered. Grillo feels under-utilised and the central hook is never exploited. He and Mackie have zero chemistry. The film feels too distracted and self satisfied to make good on a pretty simple remit.
