I've been trying to help, but if you want me to help you, you've got to help me.

You don't know what it's like, man.

You do not know what I've been going through.

You don't think I have the balls, do you?

Come on. Let me come down there. -No!

What do you say? - No, no! Fuck you!


You alright? - I hate this fucking guy.

Jeff, I'm leaning toward an entry.

We know the boy's in his room.

If we move now, we've got a hundred percent chance of saving him.

Giving up on the mom? She's twenty percent at best.

We've got to move on the boy! It's the only choice!

This one's getting away from him. Don't talk like I'm not here.

We've been here for sixteen hours! Fucking new guy!

Alright! Everybody calm down!

I just steered you all away from the subject of choice. - I fucking know that!

I need you to move back to your bedroom, okay? Right now.

Mr. Talley? - Yeah?

Are you gonna save us?

Yeah. I'm going to save you.

Now I know why you couldn't choose.

It's because God decided everything already.

Me and the whore are gonna go to hell.

No, Joe. Just relax.

But my boy's going to heaven.

I'm sorry, Jeff. - Joe, listen.

Come on, Joe. Pick it up.

I hear ringing. - Pick it up.

It's just ringing. - Pick it up, Joe.

Jeff, he's saying something.

Oh, fuck!! Where's your shot? - We lost the shot!

Where do you want it? I'll put him there.

Oh, my God, at the end of this day, I am heartily thankful Oh, my God, at the end of this day, I am heartily thankful for all the graces I have received.

I'm so sorry for all the sins I have committed against You.

Please forgive me, oh God... and graciously protect me at the end of this night.

Captain Shoemaker? Get me an aerial shot ASAP.

Shoemaker? - They're watching you on the outside cameras.

Chief Talley? - The suspects inside the house are watching every move you make! Where did you get this information?

If I were you, I'd be thinking about what to do with that information.

Mikey? Yeah, it's me. Listen to me.

Yeah, Chief. The snipers are shifting positions.

Louise, come back.

Where's that patch? - I'm blocked out. It's a dedicated line, Chief.

They won't cut me in. - Did you get Walter Smith's cell phone number?

Yes, I got it. - Okay, go.

It's 805-459.

This is Walter Smith. Please leave a message. - Shit!

Come on, Dennis. Pick it up.


It keeps ringing.

Hello? - Dennis, this is Jeff Talley.

Listen to me. Watch the security channel.

Can you hear me? - I don't really know what you're talking about.

The hell you don't! Shut up and listen!

Just watch the TV! Keep watching the outside cameras!

What am I supposed to be seeing? Shut up! Get your ass on the floor and watch the outside cameras! I'm watching, okay?

What, what're...

What are they doing?

What? - Talk to me, Dennis.

I'm here. Listen to me. Listen to me carefully.

The Sheriff wants to shoot you. First they're gonna shoot out those cameras, and then they're gonna shoot you. Am I clear?

What are you talking about?! I'm trying to save your life!

I don't understand what... Shut up! I'm trying to save your life!

But you said you weren't the guy. I am the guy, Dennis.

I am the guy.

Tech Sergeant! Pull your people back fifty yards. - Hold on.

You turned authority of this situation over... - I'm reassuming command.

What are you waiting for? You don't give orders to my men!

Ten minutes ago, you called and told me to shoot out the cameras.

And now? - You shot out the cameras?

I give you great intel like that, and you just piss it away?

Way to go, Big Time. I am not going to let you step back in after you stepped out. Captain Shoemaker!

Dennis says he doesn't trust me any more.

Says he'll shoot a hostage if he doesn't talk to Talley right now.

The name of the shooter in the house is Mars.

Run that through your database.

Your next question is how did I get that information?

The little boy in the house called me on his sister's cell phone.

Chief?

Chief? You okay?

Go on back up top, kid.


Dennis, it's Jeff. Everybody okay? We're bugging in here, man.

I know. I'm trying to help.

I really need to talk to Walter Smith. - Smith's not talkin'.

I really need to talk to Walter Smith. - Smith's not talkin'.

Is Smith not talking because you won't let him or is he not talking because he can't? It's not my fault! I've hit people harder or is he not talking because he can't? It's not my fault! I've hit people harder and they haven't fallen! - I understand.

You're under a lot of pressure in there.

But I just saved your life, and you know it.

All I'm askin' is that you help me save his life.

Come on.

He wants me to give up the old man.

Yeah. - It's your spin.

Yeah. Good idea.

It's not a wise move. We don't have enough information.

I want to help, but I won't let you do something that draws fire to my men.

You want to help me?

Turn the lights off.

Get the bird out of here.

Please.

Mikey, I'm behind the command post. Come up here.

I'm for breaking all the rules, but one. And Dennis already broke it off with me.

If you get shot, we are... I'm trying to save a life.

Yeah, Chief?

Who do we have on EMT's? There's like 7 units. Take your pick.

Give me names. - There's Hoffman, Latona, Ridley, Jackson... - Ridley.

Get Ridley up here. Tell him to strip. - Okay.

Go, Mikey! Go! Go, Mikey!

Mike, stop...- Stop right here! - What Chief? - Stop the goddamn ambulance!

Everybody okay? Jeff, what are you doing?

We're going to wake him up. - What? We're gonna wake him up.

He's fixed and dilated! Could have brain damage, for all I know.

We're going to the hospital. Wake up, Smith! - Hey, Jeff!

What the hell are you doing? Get your fucking hands off me!

I'll put this in the report!

Dammit! Give him the smelling salts. Give him a shot of epinephrine!

I need him for one minute! I've got to ask him one question!

He can't answer you!

Then just give him the drugs. I am not gonna give this man a shot!

Jeff! Jeff!

Get your gun, then, and pull the trigger!

Goddammit! I need your help!

Do you want to kill him? Go ahead! ls that what you want?

I want your help, Bob.

No, Jeff. No.

What you're doing can kill this man.

You've been seeing footage taken only minutes ago.

We're not sure who the rescued hostage is, but he's an adult man.

If our sources are correct, it could be Walter Smith, owner of the home... Smith is on his way to the hospital.

Smith worries me. - He knows his place on the food chain. He'll be good.

Dumb-ass. We can't just walk out. Don't call me a dumb-ass!

How are you going to get the Benjamins up the rock?

Not to mention the fact that helicopters are very expensive.

Gotta pay for the fuel... pilot...

Chief of Police...

You know what cops do when they're retired?

They play golf. I don't want to play golf.

I hate fucking golf.

I want a house on the golf course.

What do you think I'm doing? Just making it worse.

I always take care of you. - Bullshit!

That's the way it is, Kevin. It always has been, and it always will be.

What, what if they just wanna get us outside and shoot us?

They could have killed us a million times. But they didn't, because They could have killed us a million times. But they didn't, because Talley wants to get paid. - Yeah. He'll get paid and then shoot us.

We're leaving.

Wait. Leaving where?

You said "I'm the man..." I am the man! I'm in charge!

I am the man in charge! Prove it! - Mars!

Leave her! Jenny and I aren't going anywhere!

The man that owns this house is a criminal.

So are his friends. This money belongs to them.

Is more money what you want'? And they're gonna kill you..

No! You just... You just chose the wrong house.

I'm not lying! - Bullshit! I just lied to you about Smith!

He is not dead. You didn't kill anybody.

That means you and your brother can still beat the hard shit.

Walk out of here with me. Put those guns down and walk out now.

Don't let him fuck this up. - They'll shoot us as soon as we walk out.

You're lying to me! And what the fuck is that?

I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Shoot him!

I'm going to turn around now.

No, you will not! - I'm going to turn around and walk out of here.

So you have to choose: me or Mars.

I choose the money.

You choose the money?

You just made it easier, Chief. You're finished.

Chief Talley? The FBI is here at the barricade and they're asking for you.

Nobody leaves until I get what I need. Just let them get to the front door.

Look out the window.


Listen to me, alright? I-| don't even know who these people are.

Or what they do. I cook the books.

That's all. I set up shell companies, offshore accounts, encrypt it onto a disc and leave it at the drop point.

I mean,

I was never face to face.


I want to see my family.
