A bitter and remorseful former U.S. Marine (Washington) moves to Mexico City to take a position as the bodyguard for a wealthy family who have been receiving kidnapping threats. When their 10-year-old daughter, Pinta (Fanning), whom he had so recently befriended, is indeed kidnapped and murdered, the soldier-turned-guard devotes himself fully to reaping vengeance on those responsible... (Walken plays an old friend of Washington's who tells him about the "job" in Italy; Mitchell plays Pinta's mother)
I really, really cannot abide movies where a child is murdered as a plot device. Especially when she's a little fircracker of an actor like Dakota Fanning. This sounds truly awful and exploitive. Shades of Collateral Damage here. Unfortunately, Tony Scott will no doubt make the thing look fabulous. Urggghhh in advance.
