[quoting the opening and closing lines of John Donne's sonnet "Death Be Not Proud"]
Death be not proud, though some have called thee / Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;... One short sleep past, we wake eternally, / And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.

This must be the worst movie I have ever seen. Never ever have I seen so many unmotivated and unlogical scenes. I thought Ving Rhames and Gary Oldman would make for a good novie based on their previous work - but no, this is by far the worst 'thriller' there is - although it is only the directing that sucks in this one. Rhames is an ex-cop who goes up against a bad guy played very well by Oldman (but with a lousy script). The first 75 minutes seem like a bunch of unconnected commercials shown in sequence to create an undefined affect. The characters are pathetic, the bad ones doubly so. The story could have been ok, with better directing, but even Rhames and Oldman couldn't pull this one off.
