[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.

I saw this movie only because Gary Oldman was in it. And once again he was great. Too bad he wasn't in the movie as much as he needed to be. The story is an Ex-Cop is looking for his sister who has entered a life of Sin, hence the title of the movie. The title is the basic theme, every character has done something bad that they either regret or embrace. While the cast wasn't bad, it was most likely just the story and the editing. I have to say this movie had some of the worst editing I have ever seen in a movie. It's almost like they spent all their money on the cast, the film, and the sets. And they couldn't afford much for music and editing. Gary Oldman is still great, but because this movie was so boring, I have to say this is his worst movie. Yes, even worse than Nobody's Baby. If you're a Gary Oldman fan, then you may have to see it. But other than that, it's not even worth renting.
