Mel Gibson was so ashamed of the film that he fought to prevent it from being released to theatres in the U.S. See more »

Wow, after I jumped it occurred to me, life is perfect, life is the best. It's full of magic, beauty, opportunity, and television, and surprises, lots of surprises, yeah. And then there's that stuff that everybody longs for, but they only real feel when it's gone. All that just kinda hit me. I guess you don't really see it all clearly when you're - ya know - alive.

This is the kind of story that made Agatha Christie famous. An FBI detective is sent to solve a murder case in the close environment of a hotel. Routine? Not at all, as everybody in this hotel happens to be some kind of a mental case, with a broken life story and a character due for the supporting act Oscar. Even Mel Gibson's FBI character named Skinner (irony towards X-Files?) keeps a skeleton in his life's closet. Good acting and cinematography keeps the viewer interest alive. Yes, there are logic flaws that fellow reviewers must have bashed to death until now, but this is not what this film is about. Seeing this film reminds more the pre-revolution Russian writers stories a hundred years ago - what is the million dollars hotel but a Night Asylum at the beginning of the 21st century.
A long and expected end spoils something from the overall impression, but this is however a movie above the average crowd
