A fireman takes an unexpected course of action when a man whom he's been ordered to testify against, after being held up at a local convenience store, threatens him.
After witnessing the brutal murders of a convenience store owner and his son, firefighter Jeremy Coleman barely escapes with his life. As he is forced to testify against the crime lord, Hagan, he is placed in the witness protection program under the watch of the U.S. Marshals. When his new identity becomes compromised Jeremy is forced to take an unexpected course of action in order to get his life back and save the lives of those he loves.
Fireman Jeremy (Josh Duhamel, in the second film within two hours for me) witnesses racist thug and all-powerful crime boss David Hagen (Vincent D'Onofrio) commit two cold-blooded murders. Jeremy has no ties for Hagen to threaten him with, which means he is prepared to testify, to cop Mike Cella (Bruce Willis)'s relief. US Marshal Talia (Rosario Dawson) also features.
I'm not a great one for predicting what's going to happen in a film, so going in with no foreknowledge meant that this film, in its opening 30 minutes or more, often went in directions which I didn't see coming, which I quite liked. Which is not to say that there wasn't a degree of familiarity when said plot elements actually arrived, more that there was the occasional left turn into a road which I was familiar with, rather than continuing along Main Street.
D'Onofrio appears to be having the time of his life as a pantomime villain, Dawson is (as usual) dangerously sexy, and Duhamel and Willis are both satisfactory in parts which could have been played by any other actor in their particular demographics. Willis has a terrific moment in a warehouse. A decent supporting cast doesn't get a lot to do, and the action is handled well enough.
This film passes the time adequately and is moderately entertaining while it does so. After witnessing the murders of a store owner and his son, Jeremy Coleman barely escapes with his life.

If you take away the 'get them before they get you' part of the narrative,this film is just a dramatic retread of the eighties comedy 'See No Evil, Hear No Evil', person sees a crime, gets away, and the bad guys are after them.
But naturally, the cops are after our hero, because he's seen Kill Bill a couple of times.
If this had been made in the nineties, it would have starred Keenan Ivory Wayans, and had a comic twist on the narrative, and still have that dark edge.
Here we suffice with Duhamel literally taking the title for granted, running every five minutes and breathing heavily.
Dawson is the best thing about the film, Vincent D'onofrio turns up as a guest villain, and Bruce Willis, although very good, looks very, very smug.
It's by the numbers stuff, and its nothing memorable, but you'll have a bit if fun watching all the clichés add up. 497e39180f
