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? Written by

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 »
Young cop Emmet Young gets the news has only weeks to live. An ex-cop offers him a solution: A hit-man will kill Emmet thus sparing him a long and painful deathbed. Emmet takes the deal, but than finds out the hospital screwed up. He isn't dying. Now he has to stop the hit-man. In a substory he is also pursuing a serial killer who rapes en kills young women. On all fronts time is running out.
I liked this movie very much. The actors are good, especially Wolf and Roth. The script is original and avoids the pitfalls of cliché and stays logical. This is the first time I really liked Scott Wolf in a role. He plays Emmet as a young and intelligent but obsessive cop. I liked the fact that the director really took his time to let us in the life of the hit-man (Roth). It made the final showdown so much more powerful.
Though the film probably had a fraction of the budget most blockbusters have, this doesn't show in the film. The sounds and visuals are very well done. I highly recommend it
