Goofs

Chief Withlock has apparently been chief of police for quite a long time and Dr. Frieland has been a doctor for 10 years in the only hospital in town. But when they bump into each other they don't seem to know each other, despite the fact that chief Whitlock's picture has been on the front page of the paper. It has to be that Dr. Frieland does not read newspapers or he does not live in Banyan Keys. See more »

Liked It Better Than Most People Did, But Still Not Up To Standards
29 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the few Denzel Washington movies that flopped. It was just wasn't likable enough to hit a chord with moviegoers. His acting is still fine, but the film as a whole wasn't up to Washington's standards.

Being someone attracted to good visuals, I loved the colors in this film, set in South Florida. The orange-and-greens were beautiful and I enjoyed the music, too. It all elevated the likability of this modern day film-noir for me. Unfortunately, a lot of people were bored with this because it had so little action. That didn't bother me, although I have to admit at one point I began wondering "when is something violent going to happen." Many film noirs were like this, anyway, building up tension until the end.

I still found it pretty interesting most of the way, with a nice twist at the end. It's worth a rental, but not a purchase.
