[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.

Gary olman is a great actor...most of the time.and in spite of this movie he is still good.
So was Ving Rhames..but his lines are even worse.
This is not a bad movie,but with the caliber of actors in it I expected so much more.It almost delivered...but kept stumbling..some of the dialog is very clumsy and awkward.Continuity did not seem to be a concern here either.
This is basically a spaghetti western cop movie,starts pretty good and grabs you...then lets you go...what a shame.
Still it is worth renting if you like this style of movie.
