Low-energy and grindingly mediocre, it adds a whole new dimension to Harlin's wildly uneven oeuvre: tedium.

I did like the dynamic between Samuel L. Jackson and Keke Palmer. I'd like to see them play father and daughter in the better film.

It's not that Cleaner is a terrible film, it just doesn't rear back and sock the viewer in the jaw like a great thriller should. It's mild sauce from the first frame to the last.

...a substantial improvement over some of filmmaker Renny Harlin's more recent efforts...

A neatly contained crime whodunit with a nifty setup and an expert lead performance from Samuel L. Jackson.

The "cleaning" thing was done and done better in Curdled and in terms of a crime drama, Cleaner just doesn't measure up.

Cleaner is a watchable film, but one which feels like a missed opportunity.

Cleaner suffers from a distracting case of visual jitters and takes a CSI approach to fetishizing the messy nature of the human body.

Beyond the contributions from Samuel L. Jackson and Ed Harris, however, there's very little worth talking.
