Synopsis

Action starring Bruce Willis. Aging cop Jack Mosley (Willis) has seen better days, and all that the force expects out of him these days is to stay out of trouble while he's on the clock. Eddie Bunker (Mos Def) is set to testify before a grand jury at 10am, and it's up to Mosley to make sure that Bunker makes it to the courthouse in one piece, a job that Mosley estimates will take a maximum of 15 minutes. However, a black van has been trailing the pair and after stopping off at a nearby liquor store to pick up some breakfast, Mosley emerges from the store just in time to save Eddie from the lethal bullet of a determined assassin. When backup arrives in the form of Detective Frank Nugent (David Morse), Mosley quickly realises that the detective on Nugent's team is the same cop that Bunker is set to testify against. Now faced with the tough task of dodging bullets and eluding a massive onslaught of corrupt cops, Mosley must keep Bunker alive long enough to get him before the judge and ensure that justice is served.
