Soderbergh directs this tale of a hardened British convict (Stamp) who's out to avenge the stateside murder of his daughter. It's a taut indie that brings to mind those revenge-minded Charles Bronson flicks of the '70s. With a little help from some newfound friends, Stamp learns Fonda (very good as a smarmy music producer who launders money for the mob) was responsible for his daughter's death.
Everyone gets a comeuppance during the final shoot-out, including Newman, who plays against type here as a sort of lawyerly button man. As a bonus, there's even some Tarantino-esque dialogue to elicit laughs, and a sly cinematic reference or two as well.
