When we see the security footage of the elevator and hallway, the time/date stamp says that it's February 14th, yet only a few weeks goes by before it's January 21st (as indicated by the website). See more »
Tell me that the movie is like Se7en and I am interested. Tell me that Ziyi Zhang (Memoirs of a Geisha, House of Flying Daggers, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, 2046) is in it, and I am interested. Tell me that Dennis Quaid, the actor starring in one of my favorite films, The Big Easy, is starring this one, and I am definitely interested.
A combination like that should mean that I am in for a treat of some kind.
Barry Shabaka Henley is always a welcome addition, and he was no disappointment here.
However, the rest of the film was a big disappointment. It was devoid of any real emotion, and the struggle with the kids just distracted from the quest for the killers. It never came close to Se7en.
