Retired FBI profiler Terry McCaleb (Eastwood), who has recently had a heart transplant, is hired by Graciela Rivers (De Jesus), to investigate the death of her sister, Gloria, who happens to have given McCaleb his heart. On the case, he soon deduces that the killer, who staged the murder to look like a random robbery, may actually be a serial killer Terry was trailing for years in the FBI. Can the elderly and feeble McCaleb, who had intended to spend his retirement living on his boat in the Los Angeles harbor, and who can't drive, and has to nap regularly, muster up the endurance to find the killer?

When Terry and Graciella are talking on the boat dock, an American flag on a boat in the background changes from half mast to gone to full mast between shots. (It could, conceivably, have been lowered and re-hoisted very quickly, but it's unlikely.) See more »

This was a terrible adaption of the great book by brilliant author Michael Connelly. Hollywood producers felt that they had to change a few aspects of the story, including the ending, some of the clues, some character occupations, actions taken by McCaleb, some of the people killed, and the killer. All in all, it was a thoroughly illogical movie, with none of the better elements of the excellent novel. I reccomend that everyone avoid this movie at all costs, and read the book instead. It is immensly better.
Don't forget the cannoli.
