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 »

A little boring but acceptable adaptation of modern noir cinema
The film talks how a detective called Jack (Samuel L. Jackson) is assigned by his neighbor to find her disappeared daughter . The tracks lead a house where he's abducted by a group of delinquents (Stellan Skarsgard, Milla Jovovich, Doug Hutchinson) about to pull off a bank robbery . As Jack finds himself being held hostage while the nasty bandits decide what to do with him .
The picture is developed on its first part on the sitting room when our protagonist stumbles upon a bizarre gang of criminals , for that reason is a little tiring ; a bit later on , there starts the action and when the movie is amusing and entertaining . In the intervening period to forward is nice and there is thriller , taut , intrigue and suspense leading to finish at a frenetic action and tension . The final confrontation between the starring and the villain enemies is breathtaking and in complete emotion . Samuel L. Jackson and Milla Jovovich's interpretation is top-notch , both of them make the typical couple from noir cinema . He is impetuous and tough , she's liar , impulsive and beautiful . The supporting actors are magnificent (Skarsgard , Hutchinson and two veterans : Joss Ackland and Grace Zabriskie) . Cinematography by Spanish photographer Juan Ruiz Anchia is pretty good and Jeff Beal's musical score is atmospheric . The picture is a little bit violent but happens cruel murders . The motion picture attained limited success ; besides , it made a few box office because of lack luster and budget . The yarn will appeal to action cinema enthusiasts and Samuel L. Jackson fans . Rating : Decent and passable.
