When up-and-coming District Attorney Mitch Brockden (Cooper) commits a fatal hit-and-run, he feels compelled to manipulate the case to acquit the accused criminal who was found with the body and blamed for the crime. Following the trial, Mitch's worst fears come true when he realizes that his actions freed a guilty man, and he soon finds himself on the hunt for the killer before more victims pile up.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Cooper and Jackson never really develop as characters, and the film hurtles towards a pat, violent conclusion."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"It moves fast (a rare quality for a contemporary thriller), but doesn't end up going anywhere interesting."
‑ Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club
"A ramshackle delivery vehicle for Dominic Cooper's misadventures in accent and the sort of disinterested glowering that Samuel L. Jackson reliably pulls out for paycheck gigs."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"Had Mr. Croudins focused more on Mitch's desire to distance himself from a wrong-side-of-the-tracks upbringing - and less on ticking genre boxes - his movie could only have been the better for it."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"There's no doubt in my mind that this dull, preposterous mess will be gone from my memory by this time tomorrow night."
‑ Isaac Feldberg, We Got This Covered
"You may feel as if you're watching two or three abbreviated episodes of Law & Order in quick succession rather than a fully realized movie."
‑ Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
"Contrived and predictable yet fairly tense ..."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"A mindfield of idiocy and neglect in this poorly executed thriller. Truthfully, everyone is to blame. Only Howitt had the right idea to peel his name off the finished product."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
