Summary

Summary

An elite former cop with a serious drinking problem and a sizable gambling debt is offered an opportunity for a fresh start when a wealthy stranger buys up his debts and proposes a deadly partnership. There was a time when Matt (Steven Seagal) was a happily married husband and father, but these days his only companions are an empty bottle and a handful of casino chips. His luck has run out, and now his wife is married to another man and his daughter has a new father. Just when it seems as if things couldn't get any worse for Matt, a mysterious old man appears to offer him the opportunity of a lifetime: Should Matt agree to assassinate one of the city's most feared gangsters, his astronomical debt will be paid in full. But Matt isn't used to being a hired gun, and in order to successfully execute his dangerous mission he will first have to familiarize himself with the complicated system of underworld politics. As clarity takes hold and the prospect of redemption comes within his grasp, this once honest cop realizes there is much more to his assignment than meets the eye as he prepares to make the decision that will change his life forever. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
