Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx), is an assistant district attorney with a nearly flawless record of convictions. His client is Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler), who's wife and daughter were murdered by Clarence Darby (Christian Stolte) and his home invader accomplice, Rupert Ames (Josh Stewart). Not only was Nick stabbed himself, he had to watch the faces of the men as the killed. But now here we are in court and Darby is plea bargaining and pinning everything on his partner in order to save his own ass. Nick is forced to take the deal which will see Darby walking in a matter of a few short years. Unacceptable for Clyde, he decides to take matters into his own hands proving how corrupt the judicial system really is.
