It is very surprising that a film like this was dropped direct to DVD/Blu-ray, especially when Chris Evans is at the top of his career and just come off playing the role of Marvel’s Captain America. This film is very deep and definitely heavy on the drama. Chris Evans delivers a pretty emotional performances and shows off those acting skills. Overall though the film fails to really delivers the entertaining factors for me. I enjoyed the story but I didn’t really become very attached to it.

The film follows lawyer and also drug addict, Mike Weiss (Chris Evans) and Paul Danziger (co-director Mark Kassen) as they take their law firm against the health care and pharmaceutical companies. They are underdogs in this battle to get safety needles but in all hospitals, after a local ER nurse is pricked by a contaminated needle on the job. Not only is Mike fighting the case…he is also fighting his own demons.

The special features are virtually non-existent. Though if you enjoy the film and are a fan of digital copies than it will be a plus for you as a free digital copy is included. There are also a few preview for other Millennium Entertainment films. Fans of Evans, should give this a shot for the acting and fans of law films should enjoy it as well.
