Ex-police detective turned "cleaner," Sam Jackson proves once again he can make any role feel 'cool.'
This movie had a lot of promise. Decent premise, great cast (love Ed Harris and Guzman as well), but it falls apart in its transparency.
Within minutes of the open you see where this is going pretty much to the dot on the coroner's signature. This original problem could have been ameliorated had the rest of the set up not been just as clear cut. It was to the point of being linear it was all so obvious.
In addition, they do a lot of close-ups of the crime scenes and they were really fake looking. There should have been more effort here especially given that they were the focus of much of the subject matter.
Some of the dialogue was good and the acting was, of course, excellent, but the movie just lacked a lot in the way of making you look one way while going in another...the smart viewer will see it long before the lens allows in this one.
Maybe worth a watch for the performances, but not for the substance.
