At the end of the day all we can do is search for the truth, learn from it, and mostly importantly, defend it. So on behalf of myself, and Francisco Francis, I am Jack Begosian. And you're listening to The Truth. Goodnight, and have a good day.

I generally agree with other reviews of this film in terms of weak writing and lugubrious direction. I am rating it higher primarily because it actually has real actors in the cast, hence you can watch it without having a gag-reflex. Also, the cinematography was better than average in this genre.
While there was nothing original in the plot structure, the moral ambiguity expressed through several key characters was somewhat refreshing...though, not fully resolved.
Sadly, the fine actor, Andy Garcia, is not properly exploited in this film. He comes across less than fully dimensional. The director went to a gold mine and barely got silver.
In the end, not a waste of the viewer's time, but more an appetizer than an entrée.
