Mal Cooper (Theo Rossi, Emily the Criminal, Sons of Anarchy) is a bounty hunter whose only life is the so-called bull**** of tracking down people who have violated their parole. He was once a cop, but he knocked out a senator’s son when he got away with rape and lost his job, his marriage and pretty much everything else other than getting drunk and watching revenge-a-matic movies in the house he used to live in while his ex-wife is on her honeymoon.
His latest job from his boss Alexander Rogan (Kim Coates, Sons of Anarchy) is tracking down Jake Gordon (Shane Paul McGhie), the only witness for a crime lord — Alonzo Beaumont, Anthony “Treach” Criss from Naughty By Nature — in a case that involves mercenaries, crooked cops and no small amount of twists and turns. He also has to deal with his old partners in the police department, like his old boss Chief Joe Milazzo (Dermot Mulroney) and his informant Trina (Tameka Bob).
Directed by Jared Cohn (Lord of the Streets) and written by Chad Law and Gary Charles, this movie doesn’t break any new ground for its story, but the execution is solid and it succeeds because of the charisma of Rossi, who remains tough and capable while also showing vulnerability and even kindness in the midst of nonstop attempts on his life and the man he’s been hired to bring back.
