"Rob Van Dam (RVD) plays Bobby, a landscape architect & former Navy Seal, living with a wife & teenage daughter. When Bobby & his wife decide to go out to a nightclub with the new neighbors, he runs into trouble after accidently killing a man who attempted to rape his wife...a man who happens to be the brother of a mob boss who's blames Bobby for the death & decided to put a $100,000 bounty on him. Throughout the night, Bobby encounters so many groups of people looking to collect the bounty (including characters played by R&B artist Omarion, rap artist Ja Rule, and former WWE wrestler Nelson "Mabel/Viscera/Big Daddy V" Frazier) along with various people who aren't completely trustworthy from a crooked cop to his former friend (WWE wrestler Dave "Batista" Bautista) but when it gets too personal with his daughter being kidnapped, Bobby goes from being the hunted to the hunter.
This is one of those low budget action movies where the plot itself was very simple & something the average person can understand. The acting isn't much (RVD & Dave Bautista pretty much played their "wrestling" characters). The action here was martial arts based as RVD did have various fight scenes against multiple men throughout the film while Bautista did have the only one-on-one fight (and the best fight) in the whole movie...and for his WWE fans, you'll see some actions that he's done in the ring as well. It should be made clear thought that RVD is the star of this movie with the other appearences in the movie from those heavily advertised aren't much as Bautista appears for maybe 15 mins. total while Omarion & Ja Rule's appearences are around 5 minutes each.
DVD extras include RVD talking about his experience on the set & the stunts, quick interviews with various members of the cast, movie trailer, and footage of training for the fight scens featuring Bautista. In the end, this movie was about as good as you expected a low budget movie to be that heavily relied on various names from different venues (wrestling & urban music) to carry the movie than actors. This isn't a bad movie to the point where you want to shoot yourself in the head afterwards but also not worth going out of your way to see so I recommend for a rental if you have nothing else better to do for an hour & a half."

"this was a VERY LOW BUDGETED film I guess
I bought it thinking that Bautista was the main character but only played little parts here & there it was mainly Rob Van Dam. I wouldn't tell any action film watchers to buy this film. If you wait a bit you'll find this in Big Lots for sale at 2 - 3 dollars."
