A Crime Reviews
The story gets a little kickstart once Beart's true motive is revealed, but quickly squanders that momentum. She has better chemistry with Norman Reedus, and the scenes between them with her silent yearning are the best in the movie - not what a director of a thriller should hope to achieve! Dumb plot points seal its doom, the biggest of which is the driving element: Reedus' obsession with finding his girlfriend's killer, a man who drove a cab with a scratched door and wore a ring and red jacket. You'd have a hard time narrowing your suspects in Little Rock, Arkansas the next day with that profile, let alone 3 years later in the city with more cabbies than Larry King has failed marriages.
What a pathetically limp title too, a more accurate one would be D-Minus Crime.
The presence of Harvey Keitel can't quite save this detached and downright dull drama/thriller. The acting is fine, but the script doesn't breath life into any of its characters, making us not care about the resolution.
A man will not rest until her finds who murdered his wife. The woman living next door thinks she can make him happy. To help him move on she creates a scapegoat for the crime.
Harvey Keitel was amazingly creepy though, no argument there. Norman Reedus was, as always, a joy to watch.
While I'm more than happy to permit artistic license, I have a hard time believing the events in this movie.
