"Action Großmeister JOHN WOO ist wieder der Alte! Der Beweis: NICOLAS CAGE und JOHN TRAVOLTA im atemberaubendsten Thriller des Jahres." (CINEMA) "Ein grandioser Film mit großartigen Schauspielern, wagemutig auf der Höhe ihrer Kunst - das beste, was man in diesem Jahr bisher zu sehen bekommen hat." (BLICKPUNKT: FILM) "Im fünften Jahr seiner amerikanischen Emigration scheint das Kino JOHN WOOs wieder zu sich gefunden zu haben. Sein Faible für melodramatische Zuspitzungen, die Nähe zu sentimentaler Ikonografie und seine unbestrittene Meisterschaft, Actionsequenzen wie kein anderer in schwerelose Choreografien zu verwandeln, verbinden sich im jüngsten Opus erstmals nahtlos mit den Topoi Hollywoodscher Gangsterfilme und deren Gigantonomie." (FILM DIENST) Sechs lange Jahre war der FBI-Agent Sean Archer (JOHN TRAVOLTA) nur von einem besessen. Er wollte den Mörder seines kleinen Sohnes, den notorischen Killer und Terroristen Castor Troy (NICOLAS CAGE), für immer aus dem Weg räumen. Jetzt ist Archer am Ziel angekommen: In einem bestialischen Shoot-Down gelingt es ihm, den kaltblütigen Mörder zu stellen und dingfest zu machen. Doch Castor Troy ist nicht tot. Im Hochsicherheitstrakt eines Krankenhauses liegt er im Koma, was Archer auf eine wahnwitzige Idee bringt. Castor ist zwar ausgeschaltet, doch sein jüngster Plan, eine Giftgasbombe irgendwo in L.A. in die Luft zu jagen, läuft noch auf Hochtouren.
