Strictly by the numbers stuff all the way

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

Homicide Detective Jack Verdon (Ray Liotta) is finding his ex girlfriends being murdered one by one, with rings placed in their private areas and crosses drawn on their tongues. Clearly tangling with a psycho out to set him up and with a massive grudge against him, he must race against time to get to the bottom of it, while dealing off pesky IA Agent Vackovitch (Christian Slater.)

Since I can't get enough of Ray Liotta lately, I thought I'd dig out this ignored one from 2011. As a straight to DVD serial killer flick, I wasn't expecting much, and it seems I adjusted my expectations wisely. Gliding through the clichés one by one, this is the very definition of a pot boiler, a film you've seen a hundred times before, as generic as it's title. Liotta can hardly make the material glitter, while Slater and Ving Rhames are as supporting as support actors can be in their roles.

Ideal if you're looking for something to gently nod off to, but a big let down if you're looking for anything really challenging, this is one of the many 'quick pay check' roles Liotta has committed himself to over recent years that have knocked him so far down the food chain. **
