Samuel L. Jackson,
Jessica, whose father killed her mother and committed suicide, is a police officer. While investigating a murder, she finds herself in the center of her own investigation, when her former lovers start being murdered.
Samuel L. Jackson,
About a police detective, Jack, who, while doing a friend a favor and searching for a runaway teenager on Turk Street, stumbles upon a bizarre band of criminals about to pull off a bank robbery. Jack finds himself being held hostage while the criminals decide what to do with him, and the leader's beautiful girlfriend, Erin, is left alone to watch Jack. Erin, who we discover is a master manipulator of the men in the gang, reveals another side to Jack - a melancholy romantic who could have been a classical cellist. She finds Jack's captivity an irresistible turn-on and he can't figure out if she's for real, or manipulating him, too. Before the gang returns, Jack and Erin's connection intensifies and who ends up with the money is anyone's guess.Written by

Tyrone & Hoop are sat in the car in torrential rain. There are clear lines of sight between the camera, the mirrors and the actors' faces with no rain on the windows. Change camera to a side view and we see rain running down the side windows. See more »

I need your help. It's Connie, she's run away again.

Samuel Jackson and Milla Jovovich were superb. However, the story barely uses much of Jackson's talent. The other actors are good to okay. Stellan Skarsgård was terrible. He reads his lines like a high school student. The story was slow to get started and was quite predictable. The movie picks up as it goes along.
Milla Jovovich is beautiful and has never looked as good. She is absolutely mesmerizing to look at in this role.
On a late Saturday night when you are tired, in the mood for a movie, and just don't care what film you see it will do the trick.
Doug Hutchinson is a great Hoop! He was very convining.
Out of 10 stars (where 10 is the highest) I would give it a 5. I must say though Jovovich and Jackson were worth" the price of admission." To bad Hollywood is not ready for a love scene between the two. That would have made this an exceptional cinematic event.
