Though it is in part a stinging commentary on the soullessness of the corporate suit, Nicolas Klotz's film is extremely slow to get on track.

Where Michael Clayton assumed the viewers' utter na´vetÚ regarding corporate malfeasance, Heartbeat Detector's corrosive look at business culture rests on too overdetermined -- and at times outlandish -- a premise.
