    Hot young stars Mark Wahlberg (The Perfect Storm), Joaquin Phoenix (Gladiator, Return To Paradise) and Charlize Theron (Men Of Honor, The Cider House Rules) power this riveting crime thriller!

    Released from prison after taking the fall for a group of his friends, Leo Handler (Wahlberg) just wants to get his life back on track. But when he takes a job with his powerfully influential Uncle Frank (James Caan - The Godfather Trilogy, Mickey Blue Eyes) and reconnects with his old friend Willie (Phoenix), Leo finds himself unwittingly drawn into a world of sabotage, high-stakes payoffs and even murder! Then, he discovers a secret that makes him the target of the city`s most ruthless family - his own!

    I was a bit disappointed with this movie… it's more a case of renting rather than buying for this disc. Picture & audio quality are good, as you would expect for a recent film. However the extras are a little disappointing - I didn't listen to the director's commentary, so I can't comment on that, but the rest of the extras did not manage to hold my attention long enough to watch all of them completely - which is never a good sign!

    Overall some good performances from the whole cast, but I just didn't find myself that interested or entertained by this average thriller, which is a shame because with this cast, it could have been so much more!
