This was the worst movie I have seen in a long time. It was pointless, pretentious and did not make much sense. It contained sex scenes that were more graphic than you'd expect with such a cast. The sex (including a full view of a penis with condom)leads me to consider it a mix of porn and B-movie. What Mirren and Gooding were doing in this half baked movie I don't know, they probably needed the cash but this performance stains their fame as serious actors. Gratuitous violence; gratuitous nudity; a preference for naked jiggly butts. A cornucopia of stereotypes -bad guys without nuances; the obviousness of redemption through motherhood; all amounting to a series of boring and predictable scenes. The only saving grace was Macy Gray's wacko character but she disappeared too soon. Cuba Gooding is expressionless in lieu of looking tough (he probably hated the film and barely acted). Helen Mirren attempts to portray an amoral American killer and fails ,she should stick to the British tight-ass female characters she portrays best. Finally I found Vanessa Ferlito's looks quite creepy - she seems to have been a victim of Michael Jackson's surgeon -check the nostril reduction/lips engorgement weirdness in the scene when she talks to Macy Gray on the phone!) All and all a movie to watch for laughs...
