1st of all, I have to say is a real joy being back , it's been a while, I change internet provider not knowing I was going to loose all my contacts plus I couldn't remember my password for this page, but luckily, I found an old cell phone where it was.

My 1st review is this incredibly movie full of suspense and drama Starring 2 of the greatest actors around, Jamie Fox & Gerard Butler.

Butler's wife and little girl are murdered, his wife rape in front of him as he lay helpless tied up on the floor. Butler feels let down by Fox who tells him why he had to cut a deal and let the real murderer walk with a lesser charge. 10 years go by, Butler's anger and thirst for vengeance has gone beyond avenging his wife and little daughter , now he's pissed at the system, that told him, " It wasn't what you know, but what you can prove in court ".

To me it all came together when Fox and his boss have a secret appointment with a CIA agent who knew Butler well , he tells them that he's in jail because he wants to be in jail, if he wants you dead, your dead. As in my previous reviews, I don't give out completely, because I don't want to give the movie away, but I will say is one great dramatic suspenseful movie. Now here's the funny part, I saw it 4 times, even thought Fox tells Butler they found out who his assistant or accomplice was, unless I missed it, they never say who it was, here's where I will appreciate a helping hand, if anyone knows who Butler's accomplice, please let me know.

Without a doubt I give it a 10 , I would give it more thought .
