The 60-something Ford does the heroic family man thing again. Here he plays Jack Stanfield, a security specialist at a Seattle bank, whose family is held hostage by psycho thief Bill Cox (Bettany) and his gang. Cox needs Jack to circumvent his own security system so that $100 million can be transferred to an offshore account. Jack, of course, decides to thwart their nefarious plan and save his family. Ford is his usual stalwart self, but the movie is a paint-by-numbers disappointment that brings nothing new to the well-worn genre
