See how they run.
During a routine prison work detail, convict Piper is chained to Dodge, a cyberhacker, when gunfire breaks out. Apparently, the attack is related to stolen money that the Mafia is after, and some computer files that somebody wants desperately to bury. The pair, who don't exactly enjoy each other's company, escape and must work together if they are to reach Atlanta alive. Luckily, they meet a woman who may be willing to help them.


A remake of of THE DEFIANT ONES (1958) with Sidney Poitier. Although while the racial aspect of the plot was crucial to the original there is not really much of that in this one, and they added a bunch of JERRY BRUCKHEIMER'esque plotlines and sidecharacters to it. So yeah probably best to watch it as a standalone b-action movie merely inspired by it than a full on remake. Laurence Fishburne is always worth seeing though and Stephen Baldwin is pretty entertaining in this one, plus smaller roles by Salma Hayek and Will Patton. It could have had a better and stronger (characterwise) bad guy though he was pretty forgettable. But all and all fairly entertaining, 6.5/10
