Movie Summary

It's high-voltage thrills as hot X-FILES star David Duchovny and big-screen bad boy Timothy Hutton (BEAUTIFUL GIRLS) square off in an edgy confrontation where the stakes are high ... and the action is deadly! Duchovny plays Dr. Eugene Sands, an ex-surgeon lured into a dark underworld by a hip -- but lethal -- mob boss (Hutton) in need of some unorthodox medical assistance. Before long, Sands is "playing God" -- caught in a web of murder and mayhem, and growing far too close to the mobster's seductive mistress, played by sexy Angelina Jolie (GONE IN 60 SECONDS). It's a potent action thriller where passion and deception meet in a battle between good and evil!
