Trivia

Malone's car is a 1952 Chop Top Buick Straight 8, primer black with red rims and white wall tires. Thomas Jane found that car just days before shooting began and had it shipped up to Spokane from Oxnard just in time to get it running like it used to be. See more »

Goofs

When Malone takes Frankie the Crooner for a joy ride in the boot of his car - towards the ending of all the spins and donuts where dust goes everywhere - you can clearly see a white Jeep driving off in front of Malone's car for about 15 frames. See more »

Parallel Universe
11 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

It plays like a noir, it looks like a noir and it feels like a film noir ... So it must be a film noir! And it is. A pretty violent and bloody one, but still. There is everything here, that the formula would need. Except it does seem to play in another universe. Because you can't define it what time period in "our" world this is supposed to be. You have old cars and "old" clothing, but you also have cell phones and other newer inventions.

But if you get hung up on the time period thing or get bothered by the fact, that this couldn't be played out in the "real" world and therefor is not a "pure" noir movie, than you would miss on the entertaining part of the movie. Thomas Jane, who seems the go to guy, if you need a "B-movie" action Hero (Punisher, Mutant Chronicles), but also has the weight of knowing what he is doing as an actor. A very fine choice for the lead role. "The Damsel in Distress" and other characters fill in quite nicely.

After a very powerful beginning (an action scene, that gives you enough entertainment already), the thriller aspect of the movie kicks in. Nicely played (out) and beautifully shot and edited!
