Goofs

At the end, Ed Harris is pointing his gun at Samuel Jackson with the trigger in the rearward position, something that only happens when the double action/single action Beretta is cocked. The trigger should be at rest, in the forward position. When agitated, Ed cocks the hammer and we see that the trigger is still in the rearward position. Only at cocking should the trigger have gone from forward position to rear position. See more »

Boring and predictable
31 March 2009 | by (Minneapolis, USA) – See all my reviews

What ever happened to Hollywood creativity? There was an interesting idea , about the guy who cleans up the crime scenes and discovers the cover-up of some kind. So far so good, and then it all goes downhill It takes all of grand 5 minutes to completely figure out the whole plot. This movie is ridden with the tritest of clichés. Characters couldn't be more boring and predictable. And the tragic part is,in all of this you could see the potential for a great thriller. It looks like the talentless, behind the scenes moneymakers, once again asserted their rights and ruined yet another movie. Will someone finally get rid of this morons and let the filmmakers do their job as they seem fit.
