Decent, but not the ending I had expected
4 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story starts out with Corey Haim being drugged and his wife being kidnapped. It get's a little wonky when Corey hires a PI to find his wife and he accompanies said PI all around town following clues. It's pretty interesting, but I never understood how both Corey and the PI were so far ahead of the cops that the police had even left clues at the initial scene of the crime. Both Corey and the PI sort of work through their initial angst with one another, and their own personal problems as well. They eventually become a quasi-buddy team. Which was sort of cool to watch. However without spoiling anything, the ending threw me for a loop. It went from dark and sort of a murder thriller, to being more of a underhanded business film. It was decent, worth a rental but not really a purchase. I was a big Corey Haim fan and it was cool to see him work in a newish film, he looked sort of tired in some scenes. But I guess that was due to the being drugged and his wife being taken? I would hope so.
