With two strikes on his record, fresh-out-of-stir career criminal Troy Cameron (Nicolas Cage) wasn't interested in getting caught again. However, the influence of his old cronies Mad Dog (Willem Dafoe) and Diesel (Christopher Matthew Cook) pulls him back into the life-and the promise of big bucks from a mob chieftain (Paul Schrader, who wrote and directed) to pull off the kidnapping of a rival's infant child might make the cops the least of his problems. Gritty crime thriller also stars Reynaldo Gallegos, Omar J. Dorsey. 93 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack; English.
