Goofs

As Detective Eddie Lorenzo stands waving his gun, a short while after he discovered that he had a piece of glass in his left arm, the blood disappears as the camera changes angle and although the audience doesn't see his entire arm at that particular angle, at the volume he was bleeding, his entire shirt would have been dripping with blood.

Good premise, little development
4 August 2010 | by paul2001sw-1See all my reviews

The premise of 'Cleaner' is quite clever; a professional cleaner cleans up a crime scene, only to discover that, in spite of original appearances, the police had not recorded the crime at all. Unfortunately, as he tries to find out who has put him up to this, the film descends into regulation cliché. It's not an awful film, but it is the sort of movie in which, shortly after each character appears, you can reliably predict what their ultimate role in the plot will be; and where none of the various twists comes as a real surprise. Everything is improbably connected; there's a beautiful woman (although surprisingly no sex); it all comes down to a personal showdown at the end. It's watchable; but scarcely interesting.
