Summary
  • Firewall: Bank security expert Jack Stanfield specializes in designing infallible theft-proof financial computer systems. But there is a hidden vulnerability in the system he didn't account for - himself. When a ruthless criminal mastermind kidnaps his family, Jack is forced to find a flaw in his system and steal $100 million. With the lives of his wife and children at stake and under constant surveillance, he has only hours to find a loophole in the thief's own impenetrable system of subterfuge and false identities to beat him at his own game
  • 16 blocks: Jack Mosley is a burnt-out detective who is assigned the unenviable task of transporting a fast-talking convict from jail, 16 blocks to the 100 Centre Street courthouse. However, as the two head off, Mosley learns that the man is supposed to testify against Mosley's colleagues, and the entire NYPD want the witness dead. Mosley must choose between loyalty to his colleagues and protecting the witness
