Trivia

All of the bar scenes (including a murder scene) were filmed in Foran's Grand Trunk Pub, one of the oldest pubs still in operation in the city of Detroit. One unique fact about Foran's is that the famed magician, Harry Houdini, kept an office in the basement of the pub. See more »

Goofs

The film takes place in Detroit, Michigan. Lonnie is on death row for being the "Pontiac Killer", however the State of Michigan abolished capital punishment for state crimes in 1846. Lonnie also couldn't be executed in the state even by the Federal government since a 1963 state constitution amendment also abolished federal capital punishment in the state. The last person to be executed in Michigan was in 1938 by the U.S. Government. See more »

Don't believe any low reviews. A great mystery movie.
25 October 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This one is at least a 6 or 7 out of 10 by any standards. I think it's as good as the first one in many ways. Possibly, even better. I enjoyed it throughout and I was engaged the whole time. It has flaws like any other movie but you probably won't notice most of them. I didn't. I think it could have used a few more minutes of run time explaining some of the different character's pasts. But I think that left me wanting more in a good way. So I can't complain. I like rap music but in some spots of the movie it seemed a little out of place. Not a big deal though. The bartender totally makes up for any issues you might have. Trust me.

I can't really comment on anything more without spoilers so just give it a shot.

I would recommend it.
