What do you guys got back there?
Computer Tech #1:
The IDE was routed to the BIOS in a weird way, and the cylinder/sector was stored in the CMOS.
Yo, yo, yo. Geico Cavemen, what do you say we break that down in English.

Adapted from James Patterson's pulp novel 'Cross', this cat-and-mouse action flick more closely resembles an extended episode of 'NCIS' or 'Law and Order' than it does a fully-fledged feature film. The episodic narrative and say-everything-I'm-thinking dialogue destroys all subtlety and intelligence this may have had, whilst Rob Cohen's murky, in-your-face direction is over-zealous, distracting and at times makes it difficult to decipher what's actually going on in the action sequences. Tyler Perry is hugely popular in the States thanks to his dumbed-down, cross-dressing comedy output, but he goes full serious here to mixed results. Perry's not a complete dud yet is easily out-acted by Matthew Fox, whose psychotic serial killer replete with twitches, tics and crazy eyes is fun to watch and elevates this from total boredom to mediocre entertainment.
