Predictable.
24 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

If you share my opinion that Michael Madsen is just about the epitome of "cool", and that he can be interesting to watch even when HE isn't very interested in a project, then you have at least one good reason to sit through this watchable but predictable and formulaic thriller (he also has a nice, easy chemistry with co-star Lisa Bonet). The film doesn't become actively bad until the ridiculous turn of events that leads to the climax. (**)
