Trivia

Adrien Brody really had braces put on his teeth for his role as Harry, rather than get fake ones put in every day. He realized this was a mistake when he realized that he couldn't get into a fight at a bar because his upper lip would be destroyed by the braces. See more »

At the end of the foot pursuit at around 10:00, Foster draws her gun twice in about five seconds. See more »

Routine Crime Story
4 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

Routine crime story enhanced by the outstanding performance Adrien Brody gives us of a clever, cynical and sadistic killer who buried a woman alive just to fun. The plot has some flaws and the ending has no climax at all. Despite these negative points, the film has its moments, for example the audacious escape of Brody from the police headquarters and the poignant dialogue he keeps with the female cop (Tierney) in charge of the case. I give this a five.
