First of all...I kinda liked it! Let's begin with the storyline...a widowed cop (Garcia) finds that his son is in need of a bone marrow transplant to live and has been unable to find a suitable donor. So Garcia and his cop partner break into the FBI headquarters and use the FBI computer to do a data search of all inmates bone marrow make-up. Okay, I thought this was a bit of a stretch, our government knowing all the bone-marrow breakdowns of federal inmates, but who knows in today's day and age. Just look at the intimate details that Clinton knows of his interns (dress sizes), so maybe it's not that much of a stretch after all. Garcia encounters one little problem...Keaton is the suitable inmate donor and he just happens to be a psycho serial killer who doesn't want to help. Keaton changes his mind (hhhmmmm, somethings up) and decides to help out Garcia's son. Then for the next couple of hours, we have all out mayhem going on in the hospital as Keaton escapes, the son is dying, and Garcia is trying to keep the other cops from shooting Keaton. Okay, it is an interesting storyline, but I did kinda like the mayhem scenes. Bottom line...Keaton must be trying to change his acting-style because he is no Mr. Mom in this movie.
