When we are first introduced to the chess players Elohim (Danny Glover) and Lu (Vinnie Jones) at the chessboard, the board itself is set up incorrectly. Kings and Queens are reversed, because the board is rotated 90º from the correct starting position. Players set up the board so that White has a dark square on his/her lower left, the a1 square, so the White Queen starts the game on a white square, d1, and the White King on a dark square, e1. Elohim's K is on d1 and his Q on e1. This is a common mistake for novice chess players. See more »
A movie with a great idea that ultimately did nothing with it. Very disappointing and hard to stay focused on.
"The battle line between good and evil runs through the heart of every man." Six people are involved in a bank heist where one wrong move could be deadly. The criminals and the police all make strategic moves in hopes of ending the standoff and coming out on top. The longer the standoff goes on the greater the chance of disaster. This is a movie that had such a neat element to it that I thought this could be really neat. Essentially Glover and Jones play God and the Devil. Every move they make on the board affects how the events unfold. Unfortunately the idea was much much better than the movie. The movie really ran out of steam pretty quickly and became something that was way to slow and generic to stay focused on. Overall, a movie with a great idea that ultimately did nothing with it. Very disappointing and hard to stay focused on. The type of movie you forget as you are watching. I give this a C-.
