Storyline

Detective Jack Grimaldi (Gary Oldman) takes us through his shattered life after encountering the most deadly (and deceptive) criminal he has ever had to deal with. It doesn't help that Grimladi is playing both sides against the middle. When he encounters Demarkov (Lena Olin) he thinks he can play her as he has all the other women in his life...including his wife. But Demarkov knows Jack better than he knows himself. She plays him mercilessly, all the while threatening to kill him when she tires of the game. Written by Jonny_B_Lately

Trivia

Gary Oldman stated in a 2012 interview that he headed immediately to the set of True Romance (1993) the day after wrapping on this film. The final scene was actually shot last, and he states that in the scene, he already has the "swagger" of his True Romance (1993) pimp character Drexl Spivey, prompting his then-girlfriend to suggest he do another take.

Quotes

Don Falcone: Mind you, I have no respect for pacifism. It's a morally bankrupt belief. Pacifists believe that they have the right not to kill, but others always die in defence of that right.

Best female movie villain ever!
7 August 2000 | by mvanlamzSee all my reviews

Gary Oldman is a bad cop who doesn't know when to quit. His luck finally runs out when he runs into the best female movie villain ever! (If you've seen The Usual Suspects, think of her as Mrs. Kobayashi.) I won't say anything more, since knowing anything about this movie before seeing it will spoil it.
