John Milton is up against the clock: Jonah King, the leader of a Satanic cult, has murdered Milton's daughter and kidnapped her baby. In three days, King and his followers will sacrifice the child at midnight. Milton picks up the trail in Oklahoma as well as rescuing a waitress named Piper from her brutal, two-timing fiancé. There are odd things about Milton: his driver's license is out of date, he has a very strange gun, and he's being pursued by a man in a suit who carries FBI ID and calls himself the Accountant. Piper, who's lived a life on the sidelines, has to piece things together on the fly as they close in on King.

Did You Know?
The Latin inscribed on the god-killer's bullet reads DEUS VELOX NEX, which loosely translated means "God's swift [violent] death"
After the shoot-out is over when Milton is having sex with the waitress from the bar, he is between her legs which are wide open. In the very next cut as he stands up, the legs of the waitress are tightly closed together.
Gimme one good reason I shouldn't shoot you in the face.
You know what I mean!
Is that your tongue in your cheek or are you just pleased to see me?
If you've seen the trailer you know what this films about. A
Grandfather everyone thought was dead is out to save his baby
granddaughter from the clutches of a gang of devil worshippers. Thats
the plot in a nutshell and you don't need to know anymore.
This film is really a throwback to the old 70's revenge movies. The
dialogue is purposely cheesy. The violence is over the top. There's
nudity and gore and a few laughs to be had along the way. Nicholas Cage
gives another fine unhinged performance delivering these cheesy lines
like he was doing Shakespeare. Amber Heard as the sexy sidekick is just
as good, but possible the best performance is from William Fichtner as
the accountant. The music is loud the gunshots louder and the 3D is
great all the way through.
For me it had a similar feel to the crank movies and planet terror. It
was just stupid fun and I loved it.
