Looking for revenge, Vetter acts outside the law to punish his wife's murderers. To accomplish that, he asks Memo, who is now in prison, for help finding Diablo. After Memo's wife and son are also assassinated by Diablo he agrees to help Vetter. With Hicks' help, Vetter hunts every member of the cartel from the bottom to the top of the organization's hierarchy and finds that Memo is linked to the recent activities.

    The film's original title "Diablo" was the subject of a lawsuit by the video game company Blizzard Entertainment in 2001 when the developer/publisher filed against New Line Cinema, claiming trademark infringement on the name Diablo (a title used by Blizzard for a franchise of role-playing video games). A court initially ruled in favor of Blizzard, but the decision was reversed on appeal. Ultimately, New Line changed the film's name. However, another movie with the same name, starring Scott Eastwood, was eventually released in 2015.
