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, Latina 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
The role Keanu Reeves plays, was originally intended to be a supporting one. However during editing Lionsgate decided to make the story focus on him, rather than the female lead. See more »
There's this girl, she knows what happened. What am I going to do, bring her in? She'd be dead in a week.

The writer/director intended the movie to be a dual language, Spanish/English social drama about violence towards women and child abuse. The producers instead turned the movie into Keanu Reeves cop thriller. An alternate version that follows the director's vision was edited by Roman Polanski's longtime editor, Hervé de Luze See more »

This is not one movie. But two entirely separate movies. One is in Spanish (with English subtitles) about a Latina woman having visions and struggling with her Latin family's heritage. The other is about Keanu sleepwalking as part of solving his partner's murder. For a long time the movie goes back and forth between these two stories without the slightest connection. Then suddenly the stories are forced to merge.
Horrible acting. Bad writing. Bad, bad direction. Everything is lousy in this film.
Movies like this one should be a must-see in all film schools. "Exposed" should serve as an example of how many people it takes to make a movie and yet it can turn out this badly.
One can see by the opening credits that there must have been six production and financing companies involved. It is inconceivable that the producers, financiers and others from those companies just put out the money, saw this movie in progress, or the premiere, and were OK with it.
Do not believe the "6.3" (from 146 users!!!!) rating of this movie. These are friends of producers or production crew trying to recoup their money. All lies.
Just to give you an example: "Declan Dale" is the name of the director in the credits. But "Declan Dale" is like "Alan Smithee", a name that directors use when they want not to be associated with the film.
Even the Director wants his name off of this piece of junk. That's how bad this movie is!
