Editorial Reviews

Golden Globe® winner Julian McMahon of NIP/TUCK stars as arrogant Hollywood director Derek Plato, who has announced that his next film will be a violent prison drama. But while scouting locations alone in an abandoned penitentiary, Plato is taken hostage by a sadistic jailer (Elias Koteas of THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT and ZODIAC) and held captive on death row. Now Derek is faced with two desperate choices: Answer a series of brutally personal questions on camera, or be strapped into the electric chair. Even if Plato s darkest secrets can be unlocked, who or what is behind his cruel countdown to execution? Kim Raver (THIRD WATCH, 24), Tom Guiry (MYSTIC RIVER, BLACK HAWK DOWN), Rocky Carroll (NCIS) and Dagmara Dominczyk co-star in this intense psychological thriller with a final killer twist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Julian McMahon is captivating! September 2, 2009
Format:DVD
This movie has taken way too long to reach the public. (Disregarding that Blockbusters have had it for a while) Shame on Romar for getting rid of it!

Apparently there are two versions of this movie; an original (that has done the rounds on DVD in various countries) and the one that came with the Blockbuster DVD:s (and On Demand). My personal preference lies with the original cut even if nothing story-wise is actually left out in the On Demand/Blockbuster cut. IFC also added a scene at the beginning and at the end that weren't included anywhere in the 2 foreign versions, but it still seems to me the re-editing (and "sanitizing" of language which takes things away from the character's journey and mental deterioration) and the way they inserted the flashback sequences in the film made it much harder to follow. Not to mention foreshadows things a bit too obviously too early into the movie.

Julian McMahon (if you don't watch "Nip/Tuck", surely you remember him from "Charmed" as the half-demon Cole Turner, the true love of Phoebe Halliwell, who won a lot of hearts in his struggle to stay good) really shines in this movie as Derek Plato, an arrogant, selfish prick of a film director, who sees the world through the lens of his camera - even his girlfriend's (played by Dagmara Dominczyk) emotional outburst in the car. Let's face it; he's not a very nice person... and Julian McMahon drives the point home without going overboard.

The main plot circles around how Derek is captured by a mysterious jailer (excellently portrayed by Elias Koteas) while scouting an abandoned prison in Tennessee in preparation for another of his volatile and violent dramas.
