In this action movie Willis plays police detective Mike Cella whose partner was murdered by an Aryan Brotherhood leader named Hagan, played by Vincent D’Onofrio. When Hagan murders a store clerk and his son, firefighter Jeremy Coleman (played by Josh Duhamel) is the witness who identifies Hagan in a lineup. Coleman is then threatened with death by Hagan, and his girlfriend is hurt. Cella is determined to exact justice, and turns a blind eye as Coleman seeks revenge. Director David Barret:
My dad was Burt Reynolds and Paul Newman’s stunt double, so Paul was my Godfather, so some of these race car races we would end up seeing Bruce, so I had met him before. Of course he didn’t remember, but when he signed on, I mean, are you kidding me? I knew I had the movie. I was ecstatic. He’s not in the movie a ton, but he does drive the story forward.
