Storyline

Detective Galban Keanu Reeves, finds his partner and close friend, Detective Cullen, murdered in an underground subway. On the hunt for the killer/s, Galban begins to suspect his partner may have been heavily involved in drug dealing and police corruption. As Galban investigates, people who knew Cullen, are conveniently found dead. The closer Galban gets to the truth, both Cullen's wife, Janine Mira Sorvino, and his Lieutenant Christopher McDonald, try to persuade him to back off, fearing his findings may discredit Cullen and expose corruption within the Police Department. Galban's only remaining lead is Isabel, a young, devout, Latino girl, who resides with her in-laws. Galban fears her life could be in jeopardy should he get too close to her. However, Isabel has recently experienced something not from this world, something mystical that she believes is truly a miracle. Not unlike Galban, Isabel is dealing with her own demons from the past; a past that just may lead them to the truth... Written by a-movie-fan

Misdirection and oddness explained
27 January 2016 | by Erik PSee all my reviews

So, the film starts effectively as a detective story with Keanu trying to find a killer. As we follow the developing story there are some odd events making the viewer wonder if this is science fiction or not. It seems at first disjointed and unusual, but then gradually towards the end we see that the focus of the story is different from that first portrayed and actually the film is about something completely different.

Appears some people didn't like this, but to me it was very original, interestingly designed and definitely worth the watch. I was not bored at any point, and indeed intrigued. I wondered whether I was going to be let down by the story, but actually the ending was far more interesting than I imagined. Good acting, especially by the female lead.

Can't say any more other than the story is not what you first expect.
