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 thirty million dollars and just might explain everything.
The character Fay Neman is likely a reference to the Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman, famous for, amongst other things, his work relating to subatomic particles. See more »
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 »
Yes, refreshingly exciting, this is what i just felt during and after watching this not high-budget action-romance story. Banderas is back, very good performance. Fichtner not brilliant but psycho as it suits him, i love this individual's psychology. In general nice performing in an usual storyline. I liked the "sin city's" way of going through the movie. All in all i enjoyed this movie that hooked me since the first moment. it had a start and an end. through the whole movie i wanted to pay attention, the mystery helps but the story was making you feel that way.
Smart and enjoyable, i would suggest you spare 99 minutes for this piece. Enjoy !
