Storyline

A private detective is hired to find a missing stripper but the job turns complicated when everyone he questions ends up dead. From the mean streets of Los Angeles to the desolate desert of New Mexico, Cruz must contend with a brutal Russian Boxer, three brash LAPD detectives, an aged billionaire looking for the Big Bang, and the billionaire's stunningly gorgeous wife. The solution to the mystery will cost ten lives, net $30 million and just might explain - well - everything. Written by Anonymous

A classic noir film but updated to the 21st century
26 June 2011 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

This is the movie Hollywood refuse to do; so being done by independents rarely gets a theatrical release (at least in USA). I am really lucky, catching these movies in countries where culture has not yet being destroyed.

This is classic detective story with very modern elements like atomic fusion and a sexual charge uncommon 40 years ago.

Private Eye, Ned Cruz is commissioned by an ex-con to find a woman he loves, after and epistolary relationship. He only has her picture and the letters, but the women not only disappeared, but everybody seems to have forgotten her.

His research takes him to New Mexico where a billionaire is doing atomic fusion experiments.

All this is told in flash back while being questioned three not very friendly policemen.

As in the good detective stories; there are more information than necessary, however all the information is there.

The acting is outstanding. Banderas proves again he can carry a movie; he is totally credible in a part that does not even seems for him; but almost everybody else is also excellent or at least very good. Everybody seems very motivated in getting the movie right. And they succeed.

The technical aspects; particularly cinematography are excellent also. There are lots of artistic details but is never too charged.

Summary, just see it, pay attention and enjoyed it
