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

Trivia

The producers had originally negotiated a deal with Autumn Reeser where the nudity would have been a lot more limited than what you see now in the movie. See more »

Goofs

The Thunderbird Antonio is driving in most of the movie has no back seat, just half moon headrests that go into the back deck. In the last scene as they are driving away, the waitress and the gecko/lizard are in a backseat. See more »

Stylistic and groovy, but not quite dynamite.
20 May 2011 | by (Abroad) – See all my reviews

If you're a fan of the detective genre, this movie is worth a watch.

The use of lighting and color throughout the film was a huge boon as it really drew you further into the mystery and storyline. The script was clever, maybe trying to be a bit too clever in linking metaphors and accurate(?) science.

The acting was above par-excellent from the entire cast and it is only when the scenes rely a bit too much on the script where things seem to struggle. (Whoever wrote the insults however get's a solid A-)

Is the movie cliché? Yes. However, I never found myself trying to fill in the next line or scene because I was never really bored watching the story unfold.

The soundtrack felt well suited and the overall polish on production was good.

I was pleasantly surprised with this one. Hope you are too!
