Movie Info

Retired policeman Tom Cutler (Samuel L. Jackson) works as a crime-scene cleaner to support his young daughter. Cutler's quiet life is thrown into turmoil when woman-in-peril Ann Norcut (Eva Mendes) contacts him in the wake of a routine job. When Norcut reveals that her husband has disappeared -- and that his agency has sterilized an apparent crime scene in her home without her permission -- Cutler turns to his hardened former partner, police Detective Eddie Lorenzo (Ed Harris), for answers.

Audience Reviews for Cleaner

  • Aug 19, 2016
    Mediocre, mildly entertaining thriller that does not make the most of its somewhat interesting premise. You can smell the few surprises miles away and the showdown is not particularly exciting, even if the editing tries to make you think so. Unbelievable what huge and entertaining films director Harlin created in the 90s. Amazing that he got such a good cast for this rather tame product.

    What starts with the initial promise of outstanding camera work, promising acting and and interesting conflict is beset soon thereafter by a lazily sagging middle-act and a straight-up dumb plot with an obvious nothing-twist.

    Great cast. A crime scene cleaner gets intertwined in a cover up.

    Sam Jackson and Keke Palmer's performances are the best reasons to watch the film. They have a great on screen chemistry together. The film was so so. It was also predictable. I would have rather seen a film about the father daughter story than the predictable murder mystery.
