Trivia

The model for Dennis Quaid's character was Charles Bukowski, the hard-drinking, hard-living author. Indeed Quaid showed up on the first day of shooting with a full beard. The decision was then taken that Bukowski was a little too extreme a characterization for the lead role so it was toned down a little. See more »

Goofs

When Corey checks his revolver all the primer pockets are empty and there is some light on the inside, meaning that the revolver is loaded with empty shell casings rather than cartridges. See more »

You're paying attention, now.
22 November 2011 | by Ben LarsonSee all my reviews

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.
