Kill Mode (2019) Movie Script

In 2022, a bacterium
killed 31 million people.
We called it the sickness.
Within months,
a treatment was released,
but it came at a high price...
It made The Company
the largest corporation
in the world.
One group fought back.
Their mission...
To find out if The Company
created the sickness
so the world
would know the truth.
But The Company is closing in.
Copy that.
I want them debriefed.
Have them report to me
as soon as they arrive.
Keep an eye on sectors 5 and 6.
- Hey, sweetie.
- Hey, Mom.
- What have you been up to?
- Maria, they're back.
- Ah. Good. Where's Sean?
- Mom.
He got infected.
We put him with Emma.
- Shit.
- Mom?
They're giving him
the treatment now.
- Did you place the device?
- Yes. It's operational.
- Mom?
- Did anyone else get hurt?
No. We're fine.
Okay. Well, at least
there's some good news.
- Mom.
- Good job, you guys.
Keep me posted
on Sean's condition.
- Dad.
- Daughter.
Don't go too far, okay?
And stay where I can see you.
Are you drinking enough?
I'm way too young
to be drinking, Dad.
Hey, kid.
What are you doing here?
I'm here to help you
on your lookout.
Are you, now?
And your parents agreed to that?
I thought as much.
Help me out.
Tell me... What do you see?
Some buildings.
Well, you're not wrong.
But what can you tell me
about the buildings?
That one is very high.
It has 14 open windows,
10 of which with a direct line
of sight to our back entrance.
Yeah. You have to really
pay attention to detail.
I never knew lookout duty
was this lame.
Well, sometimes you've got to do
boring work.
Because giving up
profits you nothing.
Come on.
Let's go.
David, what's going on?
Everything. The Army's here.
They tracked us down.
Take your men.
Get everybody to the basement.
Use the tunnels.
I'll get Molly back to Buddy
and Maria.
They were heading towards
the server room
when I last saw them!
- Kim, it's me.
- Richard!
Give me the gun.
Go, go.
What's going on?
Listen up.
Find her and bring her to me.
And the others.
"Find her"?
I think they're going after
Scott, go to the server room.
- What can I do?
- Go to the server room.
Destroy all the hard drives
that are left.
- Go!
- Yes.
Security is now
in condition red.
Security is now
in condition red.
Man, you look like shit.
What the fuck
are you doing here?
- You have to get out of here.
- Where's Mom?
I want my mom!
Just take her outside.
Maria can handle herself.
Oh, shit!
I think I broke something.
My skeleton!
Get her the fuck out of here.
We'll find your parents.
I promise.
All right.
Go, go, go.
Stay low.
Stay low.
Keep your head down.
Just... keep your head down.
Come on.
Now stay close.
I got shot.
I have to destroy the drives.
If they find them...
- Come on.
- Where are you going?
Come on.
Molly, there's one thing
I got to do.
Stay close, please.
David, watch out!
Hide. Hide.
Stay low.
Molly. Molly.
- David.
- Okay. You're all right.
Come here, you little shit!
Stay there.
Molly! Run!
When was the last time
you had your treatment?
About a month ago.
I'm saving it all up
for my little boy.
How is he?
Good for now, but home alone.
We'll help you out.
And we'll get you some more.
Normally, she would keep you
here for a couple of days.
But since you've got a kid
at home,
she'll probably send you back
as soon as you're strong enough.
You can come back whenever,
but, um...
we can't give you
any treatment to take with you.
Last time we did that,
we caught a guy selling it
out on the street.
There's someone to see you.
Hey, Dave.
What are you doing here?
Dave, this is Alex.
What the fuck you doing here?
You're wanted terrorists.
Those are lies.
He knows.
So this is the Dave
that you've been talking about.
He's obviously not interested.
She gets it.
David, sit the hell down and
listen to what I have to say.
We've got nothing to talk about.
I'm not gonna help you steal
any more treatment.
That's just gonna drive up
the prices even more.
They're already up.
You're not helping anyone!
What was it on the news
this time?
What did you do?
What was it, blow up some depot?
- Oh, we did not...
- No!
We're not stealing
any treatment.
We're gonna steal the cure.
Still having these headaches?
All right.
Listen to me.
We've been tracking
an armored van
that moves from Company facility
to Company facility
guarded by a team of
highly experienced soldiers...
Former black ops
or something similar.
None of the transmissions
or reports have shown any proof
that this transport even exists.
And yet there it is.
The Company's hiding something
they don't want people
to find out about.
It's the cure.
Why drive it around?
Why move it around?
Why not use it or destroy it
and get rid of the evidence?
They can't destroy it.
Viruses are very dangerous.
If it mutates again,
if a CEO gets infected...
There's a bunch of reasons
why The Company
would want to hold on
to their cure just in case.
It sounds like their way
of thinking to me.
It's fine.
You're not bringing her back
by hiding in here.
Our pleasure.
Aah! Aah!
All right already.
I think you're making
the right choice.
I hope so.
If it's true what they say,
if the sickness has a cure...
bring it to me.
You got some spare treatment?
Who the hell has got
spare treatment?
I'm afraid, uh, not even them.
Time for hoping, right?
Hope is what's gotten me
into this mess.
But hope is what's
keeping us alive.
Without the treatment,
we'd all be gone,
and the... the billboards
would shine on no one.
The Company saved us.
The treatment saved us.
Look at yourself.
How can you...
I really hope you're right.
Go that way, five blocks down.
Ask for Emma.
Tell her David sent you.
And, old man...
don't spread the word too much.
Are you with The Company?
Not quite.
Well, thanks anyway.
Who is it?
I'm part of the rebel alliance
and a traitor.
Just open the door.
He shouldn't be trusted.
We should stop...
Well, here I am.
Really love the vibe.
Whose mother's basement is this?
Yours, right?
that's Barry, and this is Berg.
You're all that's left?
- We're the last.
- But not least.
Up top.
We always thought
The Company was responsible
for the sickness,
that they cooked this up
in the lab
or allowed its creation
by conscious neglect.
But it could go much further
than that.
We now believe we've discovered
clues towards a cure.
There's only one way
to find out, though.
Whatever it is they're
transporting, it's very secret
and very important.
- That... That's two "very."
- Okay.
So you want to grab the van
as it moves to the next place?
The van is heavily guarded,
often even with air support.
- Chopper boats.
- So that's no good.
Our best bet is to grab it
when the cargo...
Which is hopefully the cure.
When it's locked in a vault
in one of the Company facilities
it's heading towards next.
The Company facility
they're stopping next
has been built
exactly eight years ago,
around the time Maria was still
leading the factions.
Buddy was able to hack into the
computer network at the time.
Which got them and many others
discovered and killed.
But which also gave them
a shitload of intel.
Like the locations
of Company facilities.
He listed what patches of land
The Company was buying
and, uh, what they were
building there.
Barry discovered
one of Maria and Buddy's plans,
one that never
got to be executed.
This is actually pretty cool.
They placed a quake bomb
in the earth
below one of
the building sites...
Like, a device that can simulate
seismic activity.
This sleeping beauty
is laying below
The Company's research center
for over eight years now,
but it should still be active.
It better should.
Okay. Listen up.
When we get there,
Alex, David, and I get in.
Berg, you guard Barrow
and the van.
You're taking this deserter?
- You're telling me this now?
- Yes, I'm telling you this now,
because we are already
on our way,
and it's too late for you
to complain too much about it.
Come on!
I should be there!
You've got like one leg.
This makes absolutely no sense.
You're still talking.
Just a heads-up.
Berg's, uh, sense of humor
got hit by a piece of shrapnel
during the war.
At least that's my theory.
All right.
Set it off.
- Nothing's happening.
- In your bedroom.
All personnel report
to your designated Company...
- What's happening?
- For further instructions.
You should immediately evacuate
the building.
We're not going anywhere.
In order to let people out,
the evacuation warning
should open all the locks
in the building.
Let's go to work.
Hard part's over.
I'm sorry, but there are
protocols we have to follow,
as well as our lives
might be in danger.
This is not a laughing matter.
All of this is going
in my report.
But if the building collapses
and we all die,
be sure to put it
on my permanent record.
I can't believe
he would do this to me.
I have a right to be there.
After all I've...
The Company.
Social services, sector 7.
This is Elizabeth.
How may I help you?
Oh, thank God
I got ahold of you.
I just tried calling Samantha
on the other, um...
Anyway, she wasn't there,
and now we've got
this whole mess on our hands.
And if we don't fix this soon,
we will have
a major security breach and
personnel files... everything.
Who's this?
Leonard from IT?
Anywhozle, we have to relink
all the routers on the Cat 5E,
or the firewall will block
the server hosting,
and that will crash all the 12
parsecs of the SQ warp phasing,
and then we will have to reboot
the entire Ethernet Holodeck,
and you know we don't want that.
Or you could just give me
the little code
that's on the bottom
of your modem
and I can just reset
the whole thing from here
and I don't have to send
a whole team down from R&D
to debug the server racks.
The, uh...
Uh, it's the little black box.
Should be below your desk
with the flickering lights.
X-2-capital "T" -5-4-7-8-1-1-3-8.
Thanks, Lizzie.
You're a treasure.
All right.
This password should...
I'm in.
- Richard, are you there?
- Yes. I hear you.
There should be a large door
to your right
at the end of the hall.
Go through it.
In the back, there should be
a freight elevator.
Go all the way down...
The bottom level.
But be careful.
I'm not the only one
who's watching.
What if she hadn't given you
the code?
Lizzie wouldn't let me down.
It's my job to inspect the work
you and your team are doing.
I have to file
an accurate report.
I do my job.
I do what I'm supposed to do.
You should too.
The earthquake wasn't that bad,
but we should take precautions,
follow regulations,
and evacuate the building!
There! See?
This is why I'm here
and you're there.
Send Declan after them.
We've got hostiles moving down
the eastern corridor.
Declan, Davis, intercept.
The evacuation warning
opens the doors.
They must have faked the quake
to get in.
This is a Company facility.
Even if they could do
such a thing,
we'd have contingency systems
in place.
Give it up, man.
What was that?
I think they're in our system.
- Im...
- Say "impossible" one more time.
- Oh, no, no.
- What?
They're onto us?
Dick, they're...
They're coming your way.
How long we got?
What is this place?
What are they doing here?
- You okay, man?
- Mm.
The vault you're looking for
is at the very end of the
hall... the door marked "M1."
I cut off their signal.
They seem to know the way.
The way to where?
Our cargo.
This is just a way station.
What cargo?
Are you smuggling?
We've been smuggling.
We've secretly been smuggling,
and we're talking about it
with an inspector right here.
Then what is in that vault?
Tell them to shoot on sight.
Shoot on sight?
Permission to shoot on sight.
Declan, Davis, we think
they might know about M1.
Kill mode.
This is against all regulations.
I order you...
You don't get to order anyone
The hell I do.
Those people have to be captured
and tried, questioned at least.
The law states...
The law doesn't apply
to what they're after.
What the hell does that mean?
And what, pray tell,
is in vault M1?
This is it.
Come out now!
Hands and weapons raised
above your head!
Why? We already know
you're trying to kill us.
Oh, fuck!
Stun mode.
What have they done to you?
You heard me.
I found you.
They found her.
Who was that?!
Did you see her?
The fuck?!
Who was that?
Did you find it?
Who's this?
This is Molly.
Who's Molly?
She was in a cell.
The vault.
The vault is a cell.
- And she was in it?
- Yes.
Listen, I think... I... I think
they experimented on her.
For eight years.
Eight years?
She was probably quarantined,
We can't take her.
It's a huge risk.
You know I'm right.
We're risking everything
we've ever worked for.
We must have made a mistake.
There has to be another vault.
- There has to be another vault.
- There is no vault!
We can't take her.
She's coming with us.
And so are you.
Is that a girl?
What's going on?
Shut up!
Meet me in the truck.
We're getting that witch back.
- What's going on?
- You stay here.
This is way beyond
your pay grade.
Was that the girl?
Was she in the vault?
I'm going with you.
I can't believe you did this.
I mean, I just don't...
I just don't understand
how you can force
this kind of decision upon us.
This would have never happened
if we would have stuck
with the old team.
Here we go.
This was rash,
dangerous, and careless,
and it had nothing to do
with our mission.
The mission's dead.
There is no mission.
There was no vault.
There was no cure.
There was nothing in there
except for a human being, yeah?
Why would they keep
a person in a vault?
Because she is dangerous,
could be infected.
You put us all at risk.
We are on a dangerous
secret mission.
We are at risk.
But if she's infected,
why would they move her around?
She was locked up,
not quarantined,
so she hasn't got the sick.
I don't think.
You're Richard, aren't you?
I remember you now.
My mother trusted you.
I remember her saying so.
She trusted you too.
You were important.
My parents are dead,
aren't they?
I, uh, kind of always knew
when I couldn't feel them
But I knew... I knew you were
still alive somehow.
You fear me.
And you should.
But I won't infect you.
I can't get the sickness.
I'm immune.
There's a cure.
They gave it to you?
It worked.
They have it.
Am I right?
- Molly?
- They're here.
Hit them again!
Oh, no, no, no, no!
- Just brake!
- What?
Fucking do something!
They're behind us!
Don't shoot!
Don't kill them!
They've lined it with Kevlar
or some shit.
Fuck 'em!
Get me closer to the side
over there.
What are you doing?
What's happening?
Why isn't anybody
listening to me?!
I'm out!
No! No!
Fuck this!
- Sorry, I...
- Fuck you!
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!
What's going on?
What are you doing?
Get me a boat.
It's already here.
They... They must really
want you back.
Yeah, dead is more like it.
They could have easily hit you.
Why guard you all these years
and then just open fire?
They were firing at you.
What do you mean?
There's a crossroads.
We have to decide where to go.
They're probably tracking us,
The old treatment factories
are over there.
We can hide there.
You sure you want to hide?
They're bound to find us
At least they won't find us
near innocent bystanders.
Let's go!
What the hell happened to him?
He... He happened!
He failed me.
You did this?
Well, indirectly he did this
to himself.
- Are you crazy?!
- Yeah, he is.
How dare you speak out of line?!
Especially after your
performance in the basement!
Should have gone down
with more men!
Or less incompetence.
- How dare you?!
- How dare you?!
He needs to go to the hospital!
No detours!
We're in pursuit!
You fucked up his face.
He's your responsibility.
If we lose track of our targets
because of the hospital detour,
then that's your fault!
- Aaaah!
- No fucking detours.
No detours, okay?
If you speak again,
you know where the door is.
- What happened back there?
- My patience was tested.
They're heading east.
The old factory.
- They were firing at you.
- Are you okay?
Berg is hurt bad, but...
No, no, no, no, no.
- He's gone.
- No.
- He's gone! He's...
- No, he's not.
Alex, he's gone!
He's gone.
That bitch!
Auto cannon engage.
Aim for the engine.
This won't hold much longer.
- I'll be right back.
- I'd rather stay with you.
Yeah, I'd rather
stay with me too.
You want your jacket?
That old thing? No.
Right back.
Engines smengines.
I'm sorry it took me so long
to find you!
Fuck it!
Turn her around!
Shit! No!
I've never done anything
as big as that before.
How did you just do that?
I had a weird reaction
to the virus.
They never really
told me anything.
Am I... Am I safe near you?
I guess.
No promises.
This is all going in my report.
- It's you.
- It's you.
Hey, did I do that?
Now you're back for more, eh?
I've been here.
They took me here.
Leave me alone!
Where is she?
Don't you people ever die?
Come here, and let me tear you
a scar just like this, huh?
What the fuck
are you whining about?
Hey. Hey!
Hey, cut me loose!
Fuck off, friend.
Hey! Can you cut me loose?
Please cut me loose!
Hey, hey.
Cut me loose.
Cut me loose.
Fucking finally!
Get out of the van.
You're gonna...
The forecast... Plenty of
sunshine through today.
Defensive mode.
- Come on!
- Diagnostics.
What kind of Swiss-knife shit
is this?
You can't hide forever!
Let her go!
You'll shoot me if I let her go.
So, no.
It's a shame to see
this one die, though.
She's a hell of a warrior.
- Stop talking!
- Why don't you just leave?
That's what you wanted,
isn't it?
All you have to do is leave
your little terrorist pals
here to die.
We're not terrorists!
That's kind of
what all terrorists...
Stop talking!
Where the fuck is my gun?
I'm so sorry.
Oh, this really hurts.
I'm so sorry.
You did all of this for me.
Nah, it's okay.
If you could just grab every
medical thing from the van,
that'd be great, okay?
- Are you okay?
- Help her first.
Molly, are you okay?
She's not.
You will be fine.
You know, huh?
This is great.
Long-range radio.
Kill mode.
You want to watch
all your friends die?
Stun mode.
Why don't you just give up?
Because giving up
profits you nothing.
Hold it.
Please don't kill me.
Who are you?
I'm something else.
Is anyone at the site?
Listen to me.
This girl,
she was held captive
by those guys
ever since she was eight.
She's immune.
That's the secret.
That's why they kept her
locked away.
She's a threat to the treatment.
You have to let her go.
I've worked for The Company
for years.
I've never heard of no immunity.
What if you're lying?
Then you'll hunt her down again.
But what if we're not lying?
Just go.
Go now!
They are not here.
They must have headed back
to the city.
Guess we're too late.
You're really extraordinary.
I haven't seen these kind of
symptoms anywhere else.
I actually think it could be
isolated into a cure.
And a death blow to The Company.
What are you thinking about?
That building has
12 open windows,
eight with a direct line
of sight to the back entrance.
Lookout duty is boring.
