[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.

Have you ever seen authentic Hollywood drivel? Well, this is it!
The story is infantile, characters performed by the actors all have an IQ of zero, and the producers must've been drunk when they made this. I would've understood this kind of garbage being made a decade ago, but in 2003!? And by Gary Oldman?
Despite the comments that you can read on amazon.com (probably done by patriotic American boobs), this is one is a complete waste of time. It's unimaginable that this kind of stories still hold a grip over the public. Half the movie is a bunch of cliché sentences and the other half is a meager attempt to portrait cops as heroes. I mean, how many times have they done it before?
_Anything_ is better than this.
An insult to any man's intelligence.
