Review

Our Score
Director Dominique Forma exploits a slick script and some splendid character turns in this crackling kidnap thriller. The victim is Jeff Bridges, a Los Angeles crook, who is snatched by lowlife Peter Greene and his Steve McQueen-obsessed driver, John Abrahams. Once Greene is killed by bodyguard Noah Wyle, the artful Bridges tries to persuade Abrahams to place his trust in him rather than his own boss. The byplay between the pair is loaded with gentlemanly menace, but the real tension lies in Bridges's calculating manipulation.

Summary

Jimmy takes a job as driver for a gangster, not realising he is about to become involved in a kidnapping plot. The plan goes awry and the criminal is shot, leaving Jimmy stuck in the back of a van with the hostage, who claims to be a powerful mobster himself. As Jimmy tries to resolve the situation, the two crime syndicates involved come closer to all-out war. Thriller, starring Jeff Bridges and Jon Abrahams.
