Surprisingly good movie
9 October 2006 | by wdllofzepiaSee all my reviews

A film noir for the mid 90s, similar to other similar films of the 90s, but with very good acting by all who appear on the screen. Music is predictable but good, lighting is at points similar to 90s b-movies, and at times much better. It has plenty of nudity and sex, most of the times just to have them, but even then they are not in the FF button variety (boredom etc), not porn either. It is a story about a divorced cop that still loves his ex and is into what appears to be a maniac killer.

So, we have, a good story, good music, good acting, good directing and editing, beautiful women and a fun diversion for a lonely night you feel like watching a police story that reminds a bit of film noir of the past.

It is a good movie as long as you don't expect to see an AAA film.
