Storyline

Canadian RAF colonel Russell Williams's career reaches a pinnacle when he's appointed commander of his base shortly before a royal visit is announced. Yet he refuses to move into it, remaining in his quiet nearby home town. People rarely even close their doors there, even with the recent wave of intrusions, mostly to steal female underwear. As it escalates to violence and a kidnapping, Toronto sends crack detective Nick Gallagher, who teams up with the ambitious local case officer Jennifer Dobson. Although the base's cooperation proves crucial and several victims and witnesses are military, the colonel ultimately becomes the prime suspect, yet too well-respected to be formally charged without an elaborate ploy devised by Gallagher.

so so
30 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gary Cole walks off with the acting honors in this silly movie. Add the poker face Rossif Sutherland as a detective and a bland female, also with one look on her face of Duh, played by Laura Harris. Cole at least gives some depth to his character and manages to keep things going in an inane script for LMN of course. The channel that rarely presents any worthwhile project. And who knows where they keep coming up with these female leads that are more attentive to their hair, tight clothes and looks of boredom. Harris is a typical LMN female lead that goes nowhere with this film and gives nothing as an actress. Sutherland does a little better, but Cole takes over the movie and does a splendid job of a sexual deviate. I give this 1 star for Cole's work.
