Here’s the official synopsis for The Courier, which is also via Quiet Earth:
A million bucks, just to deliver a briefcase…
The catch is delivering it to a killer as elusive as a nightmare and so feared the entire Underworld trembles at the mention of his name. But THE COURIER (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is no ordinary carrier. In a business that asks no questions he’s the best there is, and with the life of his only friend held to ransom there’s no way he’s missing the drop, come hell or high water.
Hounded by hitmen and hustlers, double dealing feds and double crossing accomplices, the Courier embarks on an impossible search for the bogeyman of the underworld, a search that unravels his own murky past.
And if he ever makes the drop, the best in the business at finding people will discover why it’s so tough to find the best at making them disappear.
