Storyline

In the Philadelphia police department, Emmett Young is a hotshot, a workaholic newly promoted to homicide. He learns he has a disease that will soon kill him painfully, so he hires a stranger to arrange his own death. With one eye on the calendar (he's allowed a few days' grace before his murder), he pursues a final case, the serial killing of young women. Emmett develops a profile of the assailant. Meanwhile, his fixer hires an ex-cop to kill Emmett, a lonely security guard whom the fixer taunts and belittles. In this limited time, can Emmett sort out what's important?

Goofs

About 22 minutes in, Emmett is reading a report when he gets a nosebleed. He is reading 'tears on vaginal tissue caused by forced object' a drop of blood clearly falls on the 'obj' of object. In the next shot it has magically moved to just above the 'd' and 'ob' of 'forced object'. See more »

Somewhat thought-provoking
17 January 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

This is a fairly bleak movie that tries to give a message of hope: live your life to the full. The acting is mostly good, Tim Roth giving a particularly down-beat depiction of a no-hoper trying to find some kind of joy and purpose in his life, even if that is being an assassin. Scott Wolff, the hero detective is good too, also trying hard to make sense of his life. Gabriel Byrne does a great American accent, but deserves to be in better movies than this. There's a line in the film something like, "If you were going to make something of your life, you would have done it by now." Maybe that's the message. But we also get the hint that if we stay true to ourselves everything will work out. Anyway, the plot follows through if you concentrate a bit, and it has a satisfactory ending. I enjoyed it more than most things I see these days.
