This film noir homage should have been fun, but it's cheaply shot and indifferently conceived

To succeed as more than a study in artifice, a film - especially one steeped in fatalism - needs to feel real.

A first-rate cast and stunning black-and-white visuals aren't enough to make this homage to classic film noir successful.

It's hard to know whether Sebastian Gutierrez is imitating or satirizing the hard-boiled noirs of Hollywood's past, but either way it feels like a botched attempt.

The film's weakest link is Rufus Sewell's rumpled gumshoe, inarticulate and mumbling to the point of madness.

You never lose the nagging sense that you're simply watching a high-school drama club's production of '40s fatalism chic.

Gutierrez bathes in moodiness while remaining unconcerned with anything so pedestrian as dramatic cohesion.

Though the kooky tale could have been more focused with fewer punchlines, all that seems to be missing is the dame called toots perhaps remarking to her latest possible infatuation: Is that a Kalashnikov in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me.
