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?

In the end
8 January 2005 | by (Port St Lucie, Florida) – See all my reviews

As I said in the summary line, in the end of the movie when the screen went black, had I not paid so much for my TV and if I knew it would have done good, I would have thrown something at it. Instead I'm left yelling, "Aaaaaaarrrrrhhhhh, no way are they going to leave it like that!!!!" Not that the movie was great, but it should have been, so sometimes I have a feeling of hope that a movie like this could at some point take a turn for the better, and really get to the level it should have been. Instead they leave you feeling empty about so many different things in the movie, yes a lot did tie together but there could have been so much more.
