Frenetic actioner has small-time hood Joe (Walker) charged with disposing of a gun for his Mob cronies after a drug deal gone bad. The reason it went bad is that some crooked cops crashed the party and a few of them ended up dead. When a neighbor kid takes the gun and uses it to shoot his Russian mob-affiliated, abusive stepdad, things go sideways for everyone in a big hurry. Joe must race the clock, the cops, his associates, and the Russians to find the kid and the gun, both of which change hands with astonishing regularity over the course of the night. What this one lacks in cohesion and plausibility, it makes up for in pacing (which rarely slackens) and urgency.

This movie is really good! Joey Gazelle is in charge of getting rid of the guns that killed dirty cops in a drug deal between Italian mobsters and Afro-Americans. Joey hides the guns in the basement of his house instead of throwing in the river. His ten year old son, Nicky, and his best friend, Oleg, witness Joey hiding the gun. When Oleg's abusive stepfather, Anzor, beats his mother, Oleg steals the weapon from the basement and shoots Anzor, running away with the gun. Along the night, Joey, the Russian and the Italian mobster, and the dirty cops chase the little boy trying to retrieve the gun and disclose who ordered the boy to shoot his stepfather.
