That basically sums up everything about this. It's definitely not good, then again, it could be worse. The plot doesn't really go anywhere you wouldn't expect it to, and the mystery is the only decent thing about it, offering at least one or two surprises in this entire thing. This utterly wastes Freeman and McGinley(who, of course, as always, is beyond awesome, there's no physical way for him to not be, no matter what he's portraying, or how much screen-time he gets), both of them having been in far superior films, and taken on considerably more compelling roles. There's eye-candy for everyone, in Barkin and Garcia. The pacing is fine. None of the acting is all that great. This just really doesn't stand out, it's got the tired old clichés and developments that we've seen countless times before, and done infinitely better. Cinematography and editing don't stand out at all. Nor do dialog or delivery. This isn't likely to stay in anyone's mind for terribly long after watching. It's half-baked and unimpressive. There is some strong language, nudity and a little violence in this. I recommend it only to the biggest fans, or those merely seeking something attractive to gaze upon. 5/10
