Overview
Samuel L. Jackson (XXX, Changing Lanes) and Robert Carlyle (The Full Monty, The World is Not Enough) star in the coolest, wildest action spectacular of the year. From director Ronny Yu, and writer Stel Pavlou and co-starring Emily Mortimer (Lovely & Amazing, Scream 3) and Meat Loaf (Fight Club, The Salton Sea).

Elmo McElroy (Jackson) is a master chemist and the genius behind a designer "wonder" drug worth a cool $20 million. After ceremoniously blowing up his lab (and bosses) in Los Angeles, he heads to Liverpool, England, in search of a buyer for his new party favor. But in between dodging an assassin's bullets and trying to stay one step ahead of the law, Elmo finds an unlikely partner in a small-time gangster (Carlyle). Hang on tight for an action-packed thrill ride that you'll never forget!
