I watched this 2014 Lionsgate action/thriller film “The Prince” on Netflix DVD. It is the story of a 20 years retired assassin, Paul, who puts himself right back in the game to rescue his daughter. He recruits one of Beth’s friends, Angela, to help him find her in New Orleans where an old enemy, Omar, wages a war to track him down. He recruits some old help from Sam to aid him while taking down “The Pharmacy”, who is supplying Beth with drugs, and avoiding the onslaught of enemies that want him dead.
The movie is directed by Brian A. Miller (Caught in the Crossfire, House of the Rising Sun, The Outsider, Vice, Reprisal, Backtrace, 10 Minutes Gone) and produced by Brandt Andersen (Setup, Freelancers, The Frozen Ground, Empire State, Lone Survivor, Everest). The movie was mostly shot in Mobile, Alabama (some scenes were in New Orleans) where they have some more readily accessible French Quarter type streets that were perfect for the film. This movie was shot in the style of a modern day western, where the gunslinger is back in town.
