Thriller van Jonathan Mostow (Surrogates; Terminator 3) met in de hoofdrol Sam Worthington (Kidnapping Freddy Heineken). Stephen Lucas is een voormalige soldaat, verslaafd aan drugs en nu huurmoordenaar. De Britse drugsmagnaat Addison (Allen Leech) geeft hem opdracht de 16-jarige Ella (Odeya Rush) te vermoorden, omdat haar vader geld van hem verduisterde. Wanneer het Lucas niet lukt de trekker over te halen – Ella doet hem denken aan zijn eigen dochter – moeten ze samen vluchten, dwars door Europa achtervolgd door de mannen van Addison. Joe Leydon (variety.com) noemt het ‘a briskly paced and instantly forgettable cut-and-paste thriller (…) But never mind: Director Jonathan Mostow provides enough hairbreadth escapes, extended shootouts, crash-and-dash auto chases, and hand-to-hand combat sequences to make the movie modestly diverting for undemanding audiences.
