Goofs

Tom Cutler and Ann Norcut meet with Arlo Grange (the police coroner?) for Ann to identify her husband's body. When Vargas shows up, Tom uses the ruse that he just happened to be there and was going to go to lunch with Arlo as soon as Arlo was free. According to the clock on the wall, it was 5:30; whether a.m. or p.m., it was nowhere near time for lunch. See more »

Strong acting, nice filmography.. Just to cover a thin story
20 March 2008 | by (Helsinki, Finland) – See all my reviews

As a finnish movie fan, it's always interesting to see a new film from Renny Harlin. Especially when Samuel L. Jackson, one of the most distinctive actors ever, is in it.

Jackson plays a crime scene cleaner, which you think would be what this movie is surrounded on. With all the C.S.I. stuff out there, it might interest some. But the scene where the story starts actually tastes like an idea where to start the story, not a theme for a movie where to excavate.

The plot is an uninspiring one, from the beginning to the end. There are some attempted details and twists to bring some life and excitement to this story. I'm sorry to say they really fail. There is no depth in this movie, and every attempt to create some is exactly that - an attempt.

This is bad cause the acting is pretty and the directing is nice. I can't really understand what the director saw in this script. Maybe the idea of creating something without special effects and exploiting the CSI-thing.

I give this one 6/10. All points going to actors and the director.

The movie is categorized as "Crime / Thriller". If you want anything good (and new) like that I suggest you see "Awake".
