Reviews

Thriller starring Samuel L. Jackson as ex-cop Tom Cutler. After leaving the police force, Tom now earns his living cleaning up crime scenes in New Jersey. Tom's latest job requires him to go to an upper class neighbourhood to clean up after a murder. When he returns to the house the next day to return the key, he encounters the house's owner Ann Norcut (Eva Mendes), who has no idea what has happened. When Tom discovers that Ann's husband, a key prosecution witness about to testify about corruption in the police force, has disappeared, he suspects a setup and looks to his old partner, Eddie (Ed Harris) for assistance.

"Cleaner" is a polished little gem of a b-movie noir thriller and a surprise entry on the cv of director Renny Harlin who steps away from the slam bang action world to focus on a more character driven low key thriller.

Working with a small cast of characters (all played to the hilt by a top notch bunch of faces) and keeping the story tight as a drum (not one of the 86 minutes of the running time are wasted) Harlin shows that there is more to him than blowing stuff up... Ok so the ending is a little too Hollywood but that to me is just a minor quibble.

The bad news is that the dvd don't do the film justice on the presentation front, surely the commentry from the American disc could have been ported over and why is the film presented in 1.85:1 widescreen when it was shot in 2.40:1???

Ahh well at least the film makes up for these small glitches!

The film itself is pretty entertaining, 3 stars seems about right.

This review is about the Blu-ray version which is cropped from the original 2.35:1 to fill the 16:9 screen.
I compared it to a (non-UK) dvd in the proper ratio and the BD image is not "open matte" either, just chopped off at the sides.

Hope this helps people who care about such things :-)

I had never heard of this film. I never saw any ads for it in the cinema. I see now, that is was a critical and commercial mega-flop. Which is pretty strange. The film is well written, directed, acted. It has a good plot and excellent characterization. It has a stellar cast of Sam Jackson (in my opinion one of Americas top 10 male actors of the modern age), Eve Mendez provides eye candy, Ed Harris is terrific as the lead's ex partner turned baddie. I have no idea why people hate this film as much as they do?

I saw it late at night on C5, a channel I barely flick to. I saw Sam Jackson and thought, I'll give this a go. I then enjoyed it very much. Brought it on DVD and watched it twice in as many weeks and still enjoyed it a lot. So I am puzzled as to why so many don't like it? But then I don't like Mr Browns Boys or Jim Davidson and they sell so many DVDs they live in mansions. It has a 6.1 on IMDB which I use as a fairly good indicator generally, usually IMDB is either a bit high or a big low for me but if you like Sam Jackson and you want a decent couple of hours get this.

Samuel L Jackson stars as Tom Cutler, who seems to have OCD, the constant cleaning of his hands, the tidiness in the office and his tools all placed in order he wants them. He's a cleaner, not the usual type who comes round a Tuesday afternoon for a few hours, but the type who goes to places where someone died, or committed suicide and cleans up. As he explains most people don't know they have to clear up the mess, so that's when he steps in.

When he has to clean up a mansion - things get rather tricky, he finds himself entangled in a web of deceit, lies, backstabbing and even infidelity. He has a past himself too, he has to fight that, or at least deal with it, which makes life hard for Tom. His old partner (Ed Harris, Buffalo Soldiers [2003]) is not help either, and gets rather irate with him. The film is rather climatic at the end, with a big stand off which ends rather surprisingly.

This is an average movie, but Samuel L Jackson and Ed Harris pull it off well, and even a nice role from Luis Guzmán (Runaway Jury [2004], Anger Management [2003]), but otherwise I felt it was too short and at times the plot really was weak. Otherwise this is a great movie if you have little time (1hr 28) and is a good movie.

Cleaner is an okay thriller with a great cast. It started slowly but then after ten minutes or so it started to really pick up. Director Renny Harlin keeps the audience guessing for a while and the plot unravels nicely. There's more to each character than first appears.
Unfortunately after a good build up the film settles for a run-of-the mill cliched ending.
It's not bad, but it had the potential to be a lot better. Eva Mendes was great though.

I'm a massive fan of Renny Harlin. I think the director's 'Die Hard 2' and 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' are two of the best action films ever made, and 'Deep Blue Sea' is a damn good ride. However, his efforts into psychological thriller territory show off his weaknesses.
The Covenant was very poor, lacking tension and excitement, and sadly this also largely lacks his trademark suspense and tension.
There are several good moments - the first twenty minutes are original and very well handled, building excitement, but after that it all falls apart like wet tissue paper under the weight of typical Hollywood "you just wouldn't DO that!" scripting, in which almost everyone involved chooses to behave contrary to all normal instincts. Should report it to the Police? Don't. There are reasons given for their barmy actions, but they don't hold up under even passing scrutiny, especially when Jackson's single-parent has so much to lose.
From there, the script effectively tries to build tension with a twisting storyline, and is always interesting at the least. Suspicion is thrown around nicely, as this is a fairly classic 'whodunnit' conspiracy thriller. Unfortunately it's also classic in the sense that if you've seen this kind of film before, it's all very predictable. All the expected actions happen. All the expected bad guy red herrings pop up, and in the end, all the people you thought would turn out to be the surprise bad apple pop up as - hey! The surprise bad apple!
It's as important for a director to know his strengths and weaknesses as it is for an actor. Perhaps even more so, as a 'mis-cast' director can bring down a whole film, while a mis-cast actor just destabilises it.
