One day he receives a disc which contains the memories of a murderer killing a prostitute. Lenny investigates and is pulled deeper and deeper in a whirl of blackmail, murder and rape. Will he survive and solve the case? Written by Harald Mayr <marvin@bike.augusta.de>

Horrible
8 September 2000 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This pathetic film has a terrible time distinguishing which of its plot lines is the primary one. Fiennes is wasted, Lewis is abysmally petulant and annoying, and Bassett endures a non-sequitorial, thinly-veiled reference to the then topical Rodney King beating. What's more, the script seems to have been intended for the most thick-headed viewers of the world, as it continually and explicitly spells out exactly where the plot is going, which is nowhere fast.

What an utter waste of film. It shocks me that the overall Imdb rating of this movie is so high (over 7.0).
