Security
Security starring Antonio Banderas Separated from his wife and daughter
  and desperately seeking work, a
  special forces veteran finds himself in
  the wrong place at the wrong time —
  holed up in a shopping mall protecting
  a young girl from a psychopathic
  killer and his equally-ruthless crew
  in Security...”


UNSUCCESSFULLY TRYING TO FIND WORK and separated from his wife and young daughter, ex-special forces veteran Eddie Deacon (Antonio Banderas: The Mask of Zorro; Once Upon A Time In Mexico; Shrek) is crestfallen to find that after months of searching there are still no vacancies for him to fill.

Willing to take anything, he has begun to think he will never get his life back on track when the administrator at the employment agency (Shari Watson) catches him before he drives off to tell him that Yes, there is just one very basic job going — as a security man at a local shopping mall in a rough area of town.

Once at Ridgeside Mall, head guy Vance (Liam McIntyre: The Legend of Hercules; Pulse), who is full of himself, shows him around the mall. Hours later, during Eddie's first shift, Jamie (Katherine Mary de la Rocha), a terrified young girl who desperately needs help, bangs on the doors to be let in.

“Security
is a knuckle-biting
thriller with a gung-ho
pace that rarely lets up.
A cracking film
that sits well among
the best.
S
imilar storylines
have been done before
but it is the way in which
it is done that counts.
And Security is put
together very well...”
She is on the run and very quickly Eddie realises there is a situation that could turn nasty; a situation that even he cannot be prepared for. A deadly crime lord calling himself Charlie (Ben Kingsley: Iron Man 3; Shutter Island) turns up with his murderous crew and at first tries to charm his way in before showing his true colours.

Twelve-year-old Jamie was being transported in a motorcade by US Marshals to testify against as a trial witness in an important case. While Charlie and his men were shooting up the motorcade, Jamie escaped but they are determined to track her down and get rid of her before she can do any damage.

All that stands between Jamie and the man who killed her father is a handful of inexperienced security men and one woman, Ruby (Gabriella Wright: The Transporter Refuelled; Everly; The Tudors); but first Eddie must gain the girl's trust.

Charlie is confident he and his men can easily break into the mall and reclaim Jamie; but he has not reckoned on the ingenuity of the guards, Eddie's special forces skills and the shrewdness of Jamie herself.

With nerves of steel, Eddie protects Jamie and galvanises the security guards into action as they run through emotions of panic, acceptance and inevitability as they finally realise that it is going to take them all pulling together and using up their hidden reserves in order for any of them to survive…

Security is a knuckle-biting thriller with a gung-ho pace that rarely lets up. A cracking film that sits well among the best. Similar storylines have been done before but it is the way in which it is done that counts. And Security is put together very well.
