(2017) (Jamie Foxx, Michelle Monaghan) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama/Action: After coming into possession of twenty-five kilos of cocaine, an undercover detective tries to rescue his teenage son who's been kidnapped by a casino boss who owes the drugs to a dangerous gangster.
- Vincent Downs (JAMIE FOXX) and Sean Cass (T.I.) are homicide detectives working the Las Vegas beat. After a car chase and shootout, the two come into the possession of twenty-five kilos of cocaine, but Vincent soon learns it was intended for casino boss Stanley Rubino (DERMOT MULRONEY) when the latter's goons knife him and kidnap his sixteen-year-old son, Thomas (OCTAVIUS J. JOHNSON). Not wanting to tell his ex-wife, nurse Dena (GABRIELLE UNION), what's happened, Vincent intends to quietly trade the cocaine for his son, something that's amenable to Stanley since the drugs actually belong to Rob Novak (SCOOT McNAIRY), the feared gangster son of a crime boss.
But Vincent's plan goes awry due to Internal Affairs detective Jennifer Bryant (MICHELLE MONAGHAN) -- who's been watching the cop with her I.A. partner, Doug Dennison (DAVID HARBOUR) -- finds the drugs stashed in a casino restroom and hides them elsewhere. Jennifer is certain Vincent's a dirty cop, and now that she sees that Stanley and Novak are involved, she sees this as a potential big bust. But what she doesn't know is that Vincent is really an internal affairs detective himself who's been deep undercover for several years, and her attempts to nab him are threatening his work and cover. From that point on, she tries to nab him in the act while he tries to free his son from the casino and all who wish to do both of them harm.
