Marked For Death

Synopsis: Chicago DEA agent John Hatcher has just returned from Colombia, where his partner was killed in the line of duty by a drug dealer who has since been taken down. As a result of his partner's death, John has decided to retire, but his retirement may not be permanent. On the next day, after reuniting with his sister Melissa and Melissa's daughter Tracy, John gets into a shootout against a Jamaican drug kingpin known as Screwface, taking down some of Screwface's men. John brings himself out of retirement when Screwface retaliates by attempting to kill Melissa and Tracy. After the shooting, John is reunited with two old friends - a local high school football coach named Max, and a Jamaican Chicago cop named Charles. John and Max set out to hunt Screwface down, only to discover that Screwface has gone back to Jamaica. John and Max take Charles with them to Jamaica for an all out war against Screwface and his drug empire.

Look at me. Talk to anybody?

Did you see anybody?

Did you talk to anybody, huh?

Did you make a phone call?

Who did you talk to?

You got anything else to say?

l didn't think so.

- How long was he out of your sight?

- Maybe a couple of minutes.

Chico, l'm disappointed in you!

How could you do that?

We can't go into that meeting.

lf anyone was ever made, we were made.

You know what l say? We're goin'.

What are you? Are you crazy? Probably

a hundred people saw us chasing him.

Chico, since when did anybody

ever accuse me of being sane?

- We're goin'. All right? Come on.

- Jesus Christ!

- You see anything strange?

- Just the usual weirdness.

The deal's goin' down, man.

- Keep an eye out for me, huh?

- Right, Hatcher.

- Are you sure it's cool?

- lt's very cool. Relax.

- Good. Then let's go.

- Bueno.

And the next time, you're gonna

introduce me to Salazar, aren't you?

Yes, l promise. You got it.

No traigo dinero. No tengo dinero.

No tengo dinero. No traigo.

Bien. Bien, primo.

Here we are, gentlemen. Right on time.

You see, l told you.

This guy, he's been a good customer.

- Did you bring the green?

- Of course. l got it right here.


- Then what are you here for?

- To do business.

lf you don't like that, then l'll take off.

Clmate. Clmate, primo.

You know somethin'?

l do business for a long time.

You know why? Cos l'm careful.

You can never be too careful, right?

Careful is good with me, amigo.

Careful never killed nobody.

- ls that right?

- Stupid.

Stupid kills. Me entiendes?

OK, gringo. l think we can do business.

Good. Then let's get it over with.

Hey. How ya doin'?

Hey, Colonel!

You know, in our country... we love cops.

And when we do a cop,

it's like a tremendous status symbol.

But an American cop is like a gift from God.

My little friend

is gonna open you up a little bit

so you can tell us where

the rest of the money is, huh?

- There is no more money.

- There's gotta be more money.

Hatcher, let's get the hell

outta here! Come on!

Cover me!

- lt's clear!

- Let's go!


Por favor, no ms.


Time to go, Hatch.

l knew the only justice l could get

would be that that l made for myself -

not always by law.

Father... l just killed a woman.

l've lied, l've slept with informants,

l've taken drugs, l've falsified evidence.

l did whatever l had to do to get the bad guys.

And then l realised somethin'.

That l had become what l most despise.

- Do you have a family?

- Yes, Father.

Go to them and leave these things.

Try to find the gentle self inside you.

Allow this person to come back.

Well, what are you

going to retire to, Hatcher?

You're up to your neck in this life.

l got Bennett burning up

the phone lines every day.

l got the president going on television -

promising results, for Christ's sake.

This is not the time for you

to walk out on me. Not now.

- You can't!

- l've had enough.

Look, John...

There was nothing

you could have done to save Chico.

These things happen when you're in deep.

You know that. Take a leave.

With pay.

Hell, take a month. Take two.

You've felt burned out before this.

l need you, John, OK?

Pete, nothin' we ever did

amounted to shit, and you know it.

- Who is it?

- Uncle John.

You're not my uncle.

My Uncle John lives far away.

l am your uncle.

And you've grown up to be a big girl.

You allergic to cats?

- Nope.

- OK. Then you can come in.

Tracey, come on back...


- Johnny! l can't believe it.

- How's my little sister?

- Boys, say hello to your Uncle John.

- Who's this?
