Starring: Mel Gibson, Erin Moriarty, William H. Macy, Elisabeth Röhm, Diego Luna, Thomas Mann, Michael Parks

Action thriller directed by Jean-François Richet which follows ex-convict, John Link (Mel Gibson), who reunites with his estranged daughter, Lydia (Erin Moriarty), in order to protect her from drug dealers who are trying to kill her after Lydia’s kingpin boyfriend frames her for stealing a fortune in cartel cash.

Lydia goes on the run, with her perennial screw-up of a dad, who’s been a drunk, a drug addict, a motorcycle outlaw, and a convict in his time, and now is determined to keep his little girl from harm and, for once in his life, do the right thing.
