First of all the story was convoluted when it didn't have to be. Secondly Nicole Kidman's aged character was way over-the-top and lacked any real substance and because of this her character distracted the viewer from the actual story being told. I've experienced more interesting stories in an episode of Law & Order SVU. In addition the person who did the make up for Nicole needed to be slapped in the face because it was so bad. There wasn't a need for her to wear that stupid wig and talk with that stupid Clint Eastwood vigilante accident. I spent most of this movie laughing at The stupidity or hoping it would end soon. In addition I am aware this film was shot in LA but there was no need to include so many car following scenes it was a waste of film in my opinion.
