Stimulating suspense, noisy action and sharp-edge thriller as well as top-notch cast
28 May 2008 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Frank(Val Kilmer) is a lone man with no identity who loses his records and suffers amnesia after being wounded in the desert of New Mexico. He has visions about truck accident, hit men, clown,explosion and snipers. He's attended in a hospital of a small town by a beautiful nurse(Amy Smart) and the doctor(Gil Bellows). Meanwhile the sheriffs town(Sam Shepard , Noble Willinghan) are investigating the strange deeds. And appear a mysterious girl(Neve Campbell) reclaiming to be his fiancée. Events go wrong and he realizes he can be a murderer has been hired to kill the US President. He must find a way to find out the enigma.

This Neo-noir film packs action, suspense, thrills, shoot-out up and exciting scenes. The main and secondary casting make a first class performance. Kilmer as hapless is cool, he's the first among equal from extraordinary cast, such as Sam Shepard as obstinate deputy , Giancarlo Esposito as a stubborn journalist and Faye Dunaway as shifty woman, among others. The film is slickly narrated in original manner by means of several flashbacks, puzzles and jigsaw, for that reason and its pretentious plot results to be a little confuse. Contains stimulating action set pieces as the spectacular gun-play proceeded in a tumultuous square where come in the US President. There's a little homage to the Mexican wrestling genre when the starring enter to theatre while are showing the film titled 'Santo faces death'(1969)directed by Orozco and starred by Santo and Frank Braña. The film is produced with middling budget by Milennium, as usual, Avi Lerner, Danny Lerner, Trevor Short and Boaz Davison. The motion picture is professionally directed by Michael Haussman in his first and only movie. Although sometimes is dull and boring, the superb cast, relentless intrigue and fascinating thriller make this one well worth seeing.
