Weird and unsatisfying ..........................
17 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Francesco Quinn plays an anti-hero cop, trying to track down a serial killer. His past intertwines with acquitted suspect Brad Dourif. There are plenty of creepy images, along with some pretty creepy music, and lots of neon lit wet streets. In other words, a weak attempt to stylize this weird and unsatisfying film. Francesco is not only foul mouthed and drunk most of the time, but his parenting skills are incredibly poor, taking his young son to a strip club. There are what seem like totally inappropriate religious overtones, almost all killing is done off screen, and the entire movie moves way too slow. You can also throw in at least a bunch of confusing flashbacks, and drug induced dreams. The one redeeming factor is the always intriguing Brad Dourif. - MERK
