Homeless and on the run from a military court martial, a damaged ex-special forces soldier navigating London's criminal underworld seizes an opportunity to assume another man's identity -- transforming into an avenging angel in the process.
Ex-criminal Jacob Sternwood is forced to return to London when his son is involved in a heist gone wrong. This gives his nemesis, detective Max Lewinsky, one last chance to catch the man he's always been after.
Some really great acting here. DePalma knows how to direct these 2 wonderful actresses and he gets incredible performances out of them. The scene in which Noomi is laughing during the company party is absolutely priceless.
A lot of people on here taking this movie WAY too seriously. Doesn't anyone realize that this flick is just drenched in DARK COMEDY?!?! These characters are sexy, fun, great, and the way that they battle each other in this movie is just a roller-coaster of dark, comedic, scary, erotic, and hilarious moments! This is why I go to the movies!
I think some of the reviewers on here are not familiar with DePalma's work. If you look at Body Double, Dressed To Kill, and some of his other best work- you will see that a film like this is very true to his original work. It is campy / surreal / sexy / violent / and gripping!
