A tough as nails private investigator (Malone) squares off with gangsters and their thugs to protect a valuable secret. Malone goes through hell to protect the information but he dishes some hell as well...
This movie is kind of difficult to rate. In one sense it is the kind of hardboiled private investigator taking no shit and dishing out his own kind of justice that I like. However it is also, at times, a really silly movie with rather a silly script and a main character that takes a ludicrous amount of beating and still pops up and kicks ass.
In the end I decided that I did indeed like this movie. I liked its rather “noir” atmosphere and the fact that the character indeed is tough as nails and kicks some serious ass. There is plenty of action in the movie and it is quite violent and sometime... read the rest.

The parent/guardian is required to stay with the child under 17 through the entire movie, even if the parent gives the child/teenager permission to see the film alone. These films may contain strong profanity, graphic sexuality, nudity, strong violence, horror, gore, and strong drug use. A movie rated R for profanity often has more severe or frequent language than the PG-13 rating would permit. An R-rated movie may have more blood, gore, drug use, nudity, or graphic sexuality than a PG-13 movie would admit.
