In the dead of night a Mafia hitman comes gunning for Bobby Batton. A key player in Boston's gambling, loan-sharking and extortion underworld, Batton has been fingered for helping himself to the Mob's profits. He survives the hit but knows it's only a matter of time before the killers come looking for him again. Realising he has been betrayed and can no longer trust even his closest associates, Batton's only chance of staying alive is to 'disappear' with his wife and two kids. With the FBI closing in, he turns himself in and is offered a deal - help the Feds nail his old boss for a brutal double murder and in exchange they'll give him immunity and the whole family a place in the Witness Protection Program.

There is everything you could want in a film. It starts with action and proceeds through most worthwhile genres. Utterly captivating development of 4 actors with a at least 3 sub-plots. The most complete film I have seen. Most of my reviews have a balance of good and bad, not this one.
