Nicolas Cage is a teacher with a beautiful wife, played with easy on the eyes January Jones. They live in New Orleans and have a normal life. At the beginning of the movie, they celebrate a wedding anniversary at a posh hotel and January pops her top for us to see the goods and they make the beast with two backs. Things are good with Nic and January. Until she gets raped by a scumbag on her way home from work. At the hospital, a man approaches an enraged Cage, and says he represents a vigilante group that will find and kill the perpetrator for Nic. To make it right. To make the city safer and do what the cops won't do. Since Nic is just a docile teacher and doesn't have the Paul Kersey syndrome in this one, well...he agrees. And of course, if they do this deed for Nic, he'll owe the group "a small favor" down the pike. So the vigilante group does what it does and later on, when things are getting back to normal...they ask Nic to do something for them. Mail letters in discreet places. Follow people. And finally...it's his turn to kill someone for the group. Poor Nic, he just wanted justice for his wife, and obviously should've just done it himself, for all intents and purposes. So he goes after the guy they want him to kill, an alleged pedophile, and in a heated moment, 'accidentally' does kill the guy, only to discover that...the guy was NOT a pedophile, he was a reporter about ready to expose the vigilante group! Things get worse when Nic is fingered for the crime and must prove his "innocence" in a city full of corruption and conspiracies, where nearly EVERYONE he comes in contact with is part of this vigilante group. Although pretty unrealistic after the first thirty minutes, this action-conspiracy drama kept my attention and remained pretty entertaining throughout. There's nice chase scenes, suspenseful fights, gunplay, and even if the plot goes way surreal into impossibility land, it still remained interesting to the adrenaline rush of an ending. Nic Cage was fun to watch, and the scenes where he was pondering the murder he was asked to commit were played nicely, letting him show his acting chops- overall, he was quite good throughout the entire movie. And ah, Ms. Jones, mmmmm, so fine looking, thanks for the flash! Loved it and loved how you played into the ending as a tough as nails gal as well. Way cool.
