04.14.07Netflix James Caan and Robert Duvall are partners in a private firm that contracts to the CIA to keep people alive and whatnot until Duvall sells out and puts bullets into Caan's elbow and knee, effectively retiring him.

Except Caan is a badass and trains himself in martial arts to use his robot-like arm and leg braces along with his cane to take muthas out and then he comes back for him in macho revenge style.

This doesn't really play out in macho reveng emode though. Actually most of this movie is about Caan's recovery and the politics involved in this world, not so much machine guns and explosion actiony stuff. There's still some awesome Peckinpah slow-mo though and the world is still populated with gruff professional male types so it feels suitably hard-edged... and the trailer has some awesome voice-over.

pretty good.
