Storyline

In Seattle, detective Quentin Conners is unfairly suspended and his partner Jason York leaves the police force after a tragic shooting on Pearl Street Bridge, when the hostage and the criminal die. During a bank heist with a hostage situation, Conners is assigned in charge of the operation with the rookie Shane Dekker as his partner. The thieves, lead by Lorenz, apparently do not steal a penny from the bank. While chasing the gangsters, the police team disclose that they planted a virus in the system, stealing one billion dollars from the different accounts, using the principle of the Chaos Theory. Further, they find that Lorenz is killing his accomplices. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Chock full of twists but lacking realism
2 May 2008 | by refdanSee all my reviews

I am one of those who likes to see realistic scenarios in thrillers or action movies. This movie has a good cast, reasonable acting performances, good special effects and an interesting twist on crime/revenge stories.

I won't rehash the plot, because that is redundant.

If you are into action flicks with realistic fights and events, then you will be disappointed with this one. Although the staging is good, the fight scenes come across as contrived and fake.

My pet peeve is the inaccuracy of weapons. Supposedly, the cops and ex-cops in this scenario are skilled with their weapons, however many more shots miss their targets than I would expect. Characters actually dodge bullets and emerge unscathed after many rounds at close range. When shots do finally land, the bad guys die and the good guys are only winged, even when they are standing in full view of the shooters.

Characters take strikes with heavy objects and remain uninjured and do not even lose consciousness.

Admittedly, this film is not really about fights but about solving a mystery. At that, the filmmakers succeed greatly. I was truly surprised by the ending.
