QUICK TAKE:
Action: A low-level mobster attempts to stay ahead of the police, Russian thugs and his own associates while trying to find a missing neighbor boy who used a hot mob gun to shoot his abusive father-in-law.
PLOT:
Joey Gazelle (PAUL WALKER) is a low-level member of a New Jersey based, Italian mob syndicate who works alongside Sal "Gummy Bear" Franzone (MICHAEL CUDLITZ) for Tommy "Tombs" Perello (JOHNNY MESSNER). When a drug deal goes bad and a bunch of corrupt cops are killed, Tommy tells Joey to get rid of the guns that were involved.

But rather than ditch them, Joey hides them in a secret wall panel in the basement of the home he shares with wife Teresa (VERA FARMIGA) and son Nicky (ALEX NEUBERGER). Unbeknownst to him, Nicky and his 10-year-old next door neighbor Oleg Yugorsky (CAMERON BRIGHT) know about the stash.

Thus, one night while having dinner, Joey and his family hear gunshots ring out from Oleg having shot his abusive stepfather, Anzor (KAREL RODEN), a John Wayne loving criminal who generates crystal meth when not beating Oleg's mother, former hooker Mila (IVANA MILICEVIC).

Oleg immediately goes on the run, prompting Joey to rush in, find any slugs and try to retrieve the gun before the cops link it back to the earlier shootings, thus implicating him in the crimes. As Oleg encounters a number underworld characters that night -- including hooker Divina (IDALIS DeLEON) and her abusive pimp Lester (DAVID WARSHOFSKY), as well as the creepy pedophilic couple Dez (BRUCE ALTMAN) and Adele (ELIZABETH MITCHELL) -- Joey tries to stay one step ahead of members of both the Yugorsky and Perello crime families as well as a corrupt cop, Detective Rydell (CHAZZ PALMITERI), all of whom want the boy and missing gun.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Teenagers might be interested in it, particularly if they're looking for an action flick and/or are fans of anyone in the cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For pervasive strong brutal violence and language, sexuality and drug content.
CAST AS ROLE MODELS:
  • PAUL WALKER plays a low-level mob figure who finds himself in trouble when the gun he was supposed to ditch ends up in Oleg's hands. He then scrambles to find the boy and the gun, all while staying ahead of everyone else. He uses strong profanity, has sex with his wife, threatens and fights with others, has a bad attitude toward his father (later explained) and seems to be racist toward Russians (but that's later explained).
  • CAMERON BRIGHT plays his 10-year-old, next door neighbor who takes one of his guns and shoots his abusive stepfather with it. He then goes on the run and must deal with an assortment of seedy characters he meets.
  • VERA FARMIGA plays Joey's wife who puts up with his mob activities while trying to raise Nicky to be a good kid. She has sex with Joey, uses profanity and ends up taking the law into her own hands when she comes across some pornographic and murderous pedophiles.
  • ALEX NEUBERGER plays Joey's son who never pays attention to orders of staying put. Instead, he tries to find out what's going on and help Oleg. He also uses some profanity.
  • KAREL RODEN plays Oleg's abusive stepfather and mob figure who beats his wife, runs a meth lab and uses strong profanity.
  • JOHNNY MESSNER plays Joey's boss who kills some men who turn out to be cops and then is after Joey and Oleg to retrieve the hot handgun used to kill them. He uses strong profanity.
  • IVANA MILICEVIC plays Oleg's long-abused mother, a former Russian prostitute.
  • CHAZZ PALMITERI plays a corrupt cop involved in a deadly raid who similarly wants to find Oleg and the missing gun.
  • MICHAEL CUDLITZ plays Tommy's thug who acts menacingly toward Joey.
  • BRUCE ALTMAN and ELIZABETH MITCHELL play a pedophilic couple who abduct children, make them perform in child pornography and then kill them.

    HOW OTHERS RATED THIS MOVIE


    Curious if this title is entertaining, any good, and/or has any artistic merit?
    Then read OUR TAKE of this film.


    (Note: The "Our Take" review of this title examines the film's artistic merits and does not take into account any of the possibly objectionable material listed below).


    OUR WORD TO PARENTS:
    The following is a brief summary of the content found in this R-rated action flick. Profanity consists of a minimum of 315 "f" words, while many other expletives and colorful phrases are also uttered. Sexually explicit dialogue is present, as is a steamy sex scene between a married couple, while fully nude exotic dancers are seen doing their thing (including in graphic close-up) and several characters are noted as current or former hookers. There's also a bit about a pedophilic couple that abducts children and has them appear in child porn (not seen, although there's some related dialogue).

    Other extreme bad attitudes are present, including from a stepfather who beats his wife and his son (resulting in moments of tense family scenes along with other related material). Other violence includes many people being shot to death, wounded, beaten or otherwise hit, often with extremely bloody results, while there's also a suicide via an explosion. Those scenes and other moments of peril may be unsettling or suspenseful to viewers, while some of that and other material may be enticing for some kids to imitate. Various characters smoke and/or drink, while some brief drug use occurs and a character is noted as running a meth lab.

    Should you still be concerned about the film's appropriateness for yourself or anyone else in your home, you may want to look more closely at our detailed listings for more specific information regarding the film's content.

    For those prone to visually induced motion sickness, some scenes have quite a bit of camera movement in them.



    ALCOHOL OR DRUG USE
  • We see what appears to be a drug deal going down, with a man testing some in a vial (no use occurs).
  • On several occasions, people mockingly tell others, "Have a mai tai on me."
  • We partially see a miscellaneous character doing drugs in a dark corner of a building.
  • We hear that Anzor is up to some sort of illegal activity at his house (Detective Rydell talks of cases of Nyquil being there, and later there's talk of a meth lab).
  • People have drinks inside a strip joint.
  • Some miscellaneous men have beer on the table while playing poker.
  • BLOOD/GORE
  • We see Joey carrying Oleg out of a building and into his car, with Oleg appearing badly wounded and both having blood on them.
  • During a violent raid, one man pulls out a blade and cuts the Achilles tendon of one intruder, spraying out blood. That's followed by a massive gun battle where various people are shot, with very bloody results (including one man slipping in the blood and another's splattering all over the face of the man who shoots and kills him).
  • Oleg shows a large bruise on his body (presumably from Anzor).
  • Anzor watches an old John Wayne movie where the actor's character is a little bloody before being shot by others (all done in a very old-fashioned way).
  • We see some bloody gauze or other such bandaging in a hospital.
  • We hear gunfire, see the flashes from the shots, and then see dead, and bloody people.
  • Lester (a pimp) twice hits Divina (a hooker) with a book or something similar, with the second hit smashing her against the front of a car, bloodying her lip.
  • We see a cop sitting on a restaurant toilet, making straining sounds and the like (but nothing is seen).
  • Oleg displays some rather bad bruises on his back (presumably from where Anzor beat him).
  • Teresa shoots two pedophiles (a man and woman) dead, with blood coming out as the bullets him them.
  • Tommy shoots a man in the head at point blank range, killing him (with bloody results).
  • A man kicks Joey and then has him face down on the ice at a hockey rink with his arm bent behind him. Two hockey players then shoot pucks at Joey, with all of them hitting him quite hard in the face (with very bloody results, including a large pool of blood on the ice just below his bloody head).
  • A man shoots another man three times (we see the bloody bullet wounds on both sides of his body). He then falls to the ice with some blood running out of his mouth.
  • A gun battle breaks out on a hockey rink where many people are shot and killed (with very bloody results).
  • A man shoots another man with a shotgun (with lots of resultant blood splatter).
  • A hooker jumps on Joey's back, but he head-butts her backwards (with bloody results) A pimp then fires a shot but Joey moves Oleg out of the way and takes the shot. As he and Oleg then leave, with both bloody, we see the dead pimp lying on the floor with a knife in his neck (with bloody results).
  • DISRESPECTFUL/BAD ATTITUDE
  • All of the criminals have bad attitudes, as does Det. Rydell and other cops.
  • Various racial terms ("nigger," "mooks," "goomba,") are used in demeaning ways by various characters, while Joey talks of Oleg as the "Ruskie kid" and badmouths Russians at other points. Other comments, such as "Polished like a spic's hubcap," are also made.
  • We learn that some murderous intruders were really masked cops.
  • Anzor is mean, demeaning and physically abusive to Oleg and his mother.
  • Joey isn't nice to his father who appears to be senile (he's having problems eating -- but we later learn he was literally beaten senseless by Joey when the boy was 14 -- all for being abusive).
  • To spite his stepdad, Oleg tells Anzor, "John Wayne was a faggot."

  • Tommy remotely activates an explosive in a bag that kills a cop in a bathroom stall.
  • FRIGHTENING SCENES
  • Scenes listed under "Violence" and "Blood/Gore" may be unsettling or suspenseful to viewers, especially those with low tolerance levels for such material.
  • While eating dinner, Joey's family hears gunshots from next door, with one then slicing through their window and nearly hitting Joey (seen again from the bullet's POV). They all then scramble to the floor, with Joey then retrieving a handgun and going over there, quite furious about what's occurred.
  • Joey tries to remove a slug from a wall before the cops arrive, but it lands on the floor. As they tell him to leave, he tries to figure out how to get it without alerting them. Accordingly, he takes some gum, drops it on the floor, gets it on his shoe and then uses that to snatch the bullet.
  • When Oleg is confronted by a man in a dark building, he pulls his gun on him. Later, that man has the gun and wants Oleg to retrieve what are presumably drugs. Another man enters and the first man holds his gun on the second, but then a third man enters and holds his gun to Oleg's head in a standoff. From an outside shot, we then hear gunfire and see the flashes from the shots, and then see dead and bloody people.
  • Nicky spots Oleg and Divina in a diner where Joey is meeting the mobsters who are looking for the boy. He then tries to alert him about that, with the boys later meeting in the bathroom and then hiding in a stall to avoid being detected.
  • With his dad in a restaurant office digging through the records for an address, Oleg tries to distract the owner and some cops from entering the room (with some resultant close calls).
  • The police arrest Divina and Oleg tries to run away, but he's caught as well.
  • A creepy man and woman discover Oleg hiding in their van (two other children are there as well). They act cheerfully creepy and then take Oleg back to their place where we quickly get the impression that they're pedophiles of some sort (they talk to the other two young kids to get close to each other, etc. for the movie they're going to be in). We later see that they apparently kill their young victims as small body bags are seen in a closet along with recordings of those deaths and/or the child sex material.
  • The shadows of a pedophilic couple look rather scary as they pass by non-see-thru windows where Oleg is hiding (their fingers look long and sharp, etc.). He then calls Teresa who finally believes his story and tries to get him to find an address where she can track him down, all as the couple knocks on the door where Oleg is hiding and eventually make their way inside.
  • Teresa breaks a window to get inside a building and then confronts a pedophilic woman who tries to act innocent. After some tense moments of looking around but finding nothing, she pulls her gun on that woman and her male accomplice, repeatedly telling them to back off. She then finds Oleg stuffed in a closet and wrapped in plastic, including around his head. Teresa then scrambles to remove that plastic and resuscitate Oleg, all as the woman keeps approaching and then backing off as Teresa aims her gun at her.
  • Tommy and his accomplice have Joey and Oleg under their control and we're not sure what's going to happen to them.
  • A man kicks Joey and then has him face down on the ice at a hockey rink with his arm bent behind him. Two hockey players then shoot pucks at Joey, with all of them hitting him quite hard in the face (with very bloody results, including a large pool of blood on the ice just below his bloody head).
  • Pressured by others, Anzor holds a gun to Oleg's head, but can't shoot him.
  • GUNS/WEAPONS
  • Handguns/Shotguns/Knife/Switchblade/Bomb: Carried and/or used to threaten, wound or kill others and/or cause property damage. See "Violence" for details.
  • Nicky and Oleg see that Joey has a hidden stash of handguns behind some paneling in the basement.
  • IMITATIVE BEHAVIOR
  • Phrases: "Eat the f*cking floor," "C'mon f*ckheads," "You ain't long for this f*cking world," "Goomba f*cks," "F*ck you," "F*ck me," "Hurry the f*ck up," "F*cking dirty mooks," "Don't f*ck it up," "No f*cking way," "You f*cking piece of sh*t," "What the f*ck?" "F*ck him," "F*cking niggers all look the same," "Get the f*ck outside," "Big f*cking deal," "It's the f*cking narc who's got his d*ck in our ass," "F*cking looking good," "Little f*cker," "I'll f*cking kill you," "Don't be f*cking stupid," "Back off you sick f*ck," "F*cking Mark McGwired the sh*t out of him," "Funny f*cking guy," "Shut your f*cking mouth," "Get the f*ck up," "Shut the f*ck up," "F*cking eat me," "You f*cking c*cks*cker," "Big f*cking time," "Sh*t-bags," "Oh sh*t," "Little sh*t," "This is bullsh*t," "Sh*t-hole," "Techno-sh*t," "Crazy sh*t," "D*ckwad," "Whacking off," "Little pr*ck," "Limp d*ck," "Tw*t bar," "Suck a d*ck you pr*ck bastards," "While she sucks my long d*ck," "Niggers," "John Wayne was a faggot," "Polished like a spic's hubcap," "Have a mai tai on me," "Shut up," "Piss," "You son of a bitch," "No way in hell," "You dumb be-atch" (bitch), "Smart ass," "What the hell?" "Cajones" and "Balls" (testicles), "Bitch" (woman & man), "Punk," "Pissed" and "Say hello to my little friend."
  • All of the action and fighting, etc. might be enticing for some kids to imitate.
  • Anzor has a large tattoo of John Wayne on his back.
  • To spite his stepdad, Oleg tells Anzor, "John Wayne was a faggot."
  • Joey has tattoos on his arms.
  • We see miscellaneous graffiti (already painted) on various surfaces.
  • A guy gives "the finger" to Joey who then grabs and breaks it, causing that man a lot of pain.
  • Teresa wears a midriff-revealing top.
  • A woman commits suicide by igniting gas from canisters at her house. The resultant explosion rattles Teresa's house.
  • JUMP SCENES
  • A bullet suddenly rips through Joey's dining room window.
  • MUSIC (SCARY/TENSE)
  • An extreme amount of suspenseful and ominous music plays in the film.
  • MUSIC (INAPPROPRIATE)
  • A song sounded like it had at least 1 use of the "f" word, while other such songs had lyrics that we couldn't understand or fully hear, thus offering the possibility of them potentially containing other objectionable material.
  • PROFANITY
  • Considering the rapid-fire profanity (often simultaneously occurring with content from other categories), the following should be considered a bare minimum: At least 315 "f" words (14 used with "mother," 1 used sexually as is the term "laid"), 44 "s" words, 23 slang terms using male genitals ("c*ck," "c*cks*cker," "d*ck" and "pr*ck"), 5 using female genitals ("c*nt," "p*ssy" and "tw*t"), 11 asses (1 used with "hole"), 4 hells, 3 S.O.B.s, 6 uses of "G-damn," 5 of "Jesus Christ," 2 each of "Jesus," "Oh God," "Oh Jesus" and "Swear to God" and 1 use each of "God" and "Oh my God."
  • SEX/NUDITY
  • Joey walks in to find his father blankly watching a TV commercial featuring scantly clad young women jumping about. He then meanly asks, "Are you whacking off to the E channel again?"
  • Representing Joey's point of view, the camera focuses on Teresa's clothed butt (with part of her thong visible at the top) as she's bent over at the clothes dryer. He then walks up behind and lustfully grabs her in that position and then the two passionately kiss, while we also hear some heavy breathing. Joey talks of getting "some of this" and he then opens her jeans and kisses down her belly toward the top of that thong. She says they can't since others are in the house, but Joey says he'll be quick and quiet (she jokingly replies she can believe the quick part, but not the quiet one). He then has his pants down while standing (we see his bare butt) while he's between her legs as she sits on the dryer. We can't see if they're having sex, but she stops him to rush off and check the stove (we see her mostly bare butt in that thong bottom as she stands in the kitchen -- she then pulls up her jeans). Moments later, Joey playfully smacks her clothed butt.
  • We see Anzor standing shirtless in his house.
  • A comment is made about "jerk off to" something.
  • Divina wears standard hooker attire (short skirt, midriff and cleavage revealing top).
  • When a pharmacist won't sell Divina Oleg's prescription, she offers to take that man out back to work things out (meaning sexually). When that doesn't work, she holds Oleg's gun to the man's face.
  • Outside a strip joint, we see a changing neon sign that shows the shapes of nude women. Nicky asks his dad what's inside, but Joey won't let him come in (despite Nicky saying he's seen his mom naked and that it's no big deal). Inside, we see various shots of completely nude strippers (full rear and frontal nudity - including some close-up views as well as full genital views of one), while the men inside the place talk about "p*ssy" and it being a "tw*t bar" (there's also mention of "suck a d*ck").
  • Mila states that she belongs to Anzor, saying that she was a prostitute in Moscow, ended up pregnant, and was told to have an abortion but didn't.
  • Teresa shows lots of cleavage in one outfit.
  • Tommy tells Teresa, "Hey T, looking f*cking good."
  • We see a miscellaneous shirtless man.
  • A couple turns out to be pedophiles who abduct children, get them to perform in child pornography and then kill them (in one instance, they talk to two young kids to get close to each other, etc. for the movie they're going to be in).
  • We hear the voice of one of the kidnapped kids telling one of their pedophile abductors that they're not going to touch it (but we don't know exactly what they're talking about).
  • Making small talk with Oleg, Joey turns on the radio and hearing a particular singer, tells the boy that the singer is going to be warming up the backseat when "you're gonna get laid" (meaning in the future).
  • To goad Joey and being upset with him over apparently messing things up, Tommy says that when he leaves he's going to "f*ck T (Teresa) in the ass."
  • Anzor removes his shirt (in a nonsexual context).
  • A man makes the mocking comment, "While she sucks my long d*ck."

  • Anzor punches Mila in the face that he then presses down into some food on the floor.
  • We see a flashback to Oleg shooting Anzor for abusing the boy's mother (Anzor is wounded, but lives).
  • Mad at Nicky, Joey pushes him back against a bathroom wall and then slams his hands on either side of his head.
  • Detective Rydell puts pressure on Anzor to get Oleg to cooperate. Accordingly, Anzor tells Oleg to tell him where the gun is "Or I'll f*cking kill you." He then slaps Oleg who in turn throws something into Anzor's face before overturning the table they're at and running out. He then tries to hide from Anzor.
  • Joey talk of his own past of being an abused kid, saying that when he was 14 he took a bat to his father and beat him (we then see a partial flashback to that).
  • Pressured by others, Anzor holds a gun to Oleg's head, but can't shoot him.
  • A boy looks for his mom, not realizing she just committed suicide.

  • Joey talk of his own past of being an abused kid, saying that when he was 14 he took a bat to his father and beat him (we then see a partial flashback to that).
  • Suicide.
  • VIOLENCE
  • Masked men raid a drug deal and hold their guns on those inside the room. They then make them get on the floor and slide their weapons away. One hits one man in the gut and then kicks him on the floor. As the masked men prepare to leave, one on the floor pulls out a blade and cuts the Achilles tendon of one intruder, spraying out blood. One man (carrying a machete or something similar) is shot and killed and another is blown back against a wall while rushing a gunman, while another is shot point blank in the head (with very bloody/gory results). The intruders prepare to shoot the rest, but the latter suddenly hold guns on those men's crotches, with one shooting a man there. That's followed by a massive gun battle where various people are shot, with very bloody results (including one man slipping in the blood and another's splattering all over the face of the man who shoots and kills him after stepping down onto his crotch -- the actual shooting is not seen).
  • Oleg and Nicky fight while playing hockey in the basement, with the latter hitting the former who then shows a large bruise (but we later learn that's from Anzor and not what Nicky just did).
  • Anzor watches an old John Wayne movie where the actor's character is a little bloody before being shot by others (all done in a very old-fashioned way).
  • Teresa whacks Nicky on the head for cussing.

Another man enters and the first man holds his gun on the second, but then a third man enters and holds his gun to Oleg's head in a standoff. From an outside shot, we then hear gunfire and see the flashes from the shots, and then see dead and bloody people.
  • Lester (a pimp) twice hits Divina (a hooker) with a book or something similar, with the second hit smashing her against the front of a car, bloodying her lip. He then pulls a switchblade to take to her, but Oleg (who witnessed the beating) holds his gun on Lester. The pimp then approaches the boy who pulls the trigger several times (the gun is empty), with Lester then grabbing the boy and threatening to cut a permanent smile on his face. As he prepares to do that, Divina hits Lester over the head with something and she and Oleg escape.
  • When a pharmacist won't sell Divina Oleg's prescription, she offers to take that man out back to work things out (meaning sexually). When that doesn't work, she holds Oleg's gun to the man's face.
  • Mad at Nicky, Joey pushes him back against a bathroom wall and then slams his hands on either side of his head.
  • After hearing that a janitor might have his missing gun, Joey pushes his way into that man's house and holds his gun on the man's wife and child, scaring them. Later, he busts in on a poker game (still looking for the janitor) and hits one man on the head before holding his gun directly on another. That second man gives "the finger" to Joey who then grabs and breaks it, causing that man a lot of pain.
  • Detective Rydell puts pressure on Anzor to get Oleg to cooperate. Accordingly, Anzor tells Oleg to tell him where the gun is "Or I'll f*cking kill you." He then slaps Oleg who in turn throws something into Anzor's face before overturning the table they're at and running out.
  • Oleg falls in a bathroom and lands hard on the floor. After a moment of appearing dazed, he's okay.

  • Tommy hits Joey again.
  • A man smacks Oleg.
  • A man kicks Joey and then has him face down on the ice at a hockey rink with his arm bent behind him.
