Late one night, Los Angeles private investigator, Ned Cruz (Antonio Banderas) gets a visit from a recently paroled Russian boxer with an intriguing job offer: find Lexie, his missing girlfriend - and the 30-million dollar stash of diamonds she's hiding. As Detective Cruz sets out to find her, the clues send him into the city s seediest corners, from a Hollywood action star with a dirty little secret (James Van Der Beek), to an enterprising porn producer who takes a personal interest in his own work (Snoop Dogg) and a kinky waitress with an unusual fetish for particle physics (Autumn Reeser). Lexie proves to be as elusive as she is beautiful and Cruz becomes obsessed with finding her. With time running out, Cruz discovers the trail leads to reclusive billionaire (Sam Elliott), and his physicist (Jimmi Simpson), intent on recreating The Big Bang underneath the New Mexico desert. Tailed by a trio of cops also looking to find the missing diamonds, and with the body count piling up, Cruz soon realizes that what appeared to be a standard missing person's case is anything but, and could quite possibly bring about the end of the world as we know it.

Format: DVD
Antonio Banderas plays Ned Cruz a gumshoe who is hired by a Russian boxer, Anton 'The Pro' Protopov, (Robert Maillet) to find a stripper. Banderas does the typical gumshoe first person narration which turns out really sad due to his accent. In a comic boxing scene Anton crushes his opponent in the boxing ring, then suddenly remembers to take a dive. His quest involves a twisted plot which includes the porn industry which is shooting a movie called "The Black Hole" in a building called "Schrodingers", and a string of murders which follows Banderas as he searches for Lexie (Sienna Guillory).

Eventually Bandaras travels to New Mexico from California (was that the sunset he was driving into?) and goes to a restaurant called "Planck's Constant" (What? No Beta Bar?) Clearly if you haven't had a little atomic physics in your life, you are not going to get the little subtleties. The search for the missing person becomes metaphoric as searching for a theoretical particle. However if you can't figure it out, the movie explains it you.

The comical lines spoken by Banderas were good, but it was like having someone who can't tell a joke tell you a real funny joke. Someone like a younger Bruce Willis needed to play that role. If you are going to create a movie which is a metaphor, don't explain it in the movie. The audience is supposed to figure it out for themselves. Sam Elliot was good. This could have easily been a cult classic in the style of Tarantino, but having Banderas as the lead and explaining the metaphor in the film ruined it. Ending was good.

Autumn Reeser from "World According To BARNS" plays a waitress. (Sorry, I had to add another nuclear physics reference.)

Parental Guide: Contains F-bomb, a physics lesson with sex and nudity. A lesson from the film: Never film yourself having sex with an albino dwarf.

Format: DVD
Faithful to many of the conventions of film noir but mixed in with a lot of quantum physics in-jokes and puns this is an odd film, but with a clever denouement. Instead of Moose Mulloy looking for Velma, we have a big Russian boxer looking for Lexie; and all the clues are there providing you can hear through the mass of mumbling that would make Mark Wahlberg proud. You will have to get past the geek humour (how many references did you kids spot?) to the underlying mystery but it is worth it.

Format: Blu-ray
The Big Bang stars Antonia Banderas (Desperado) as Nic Cruz, a world-weary private detective at the end of his tether. He is approached by Anton 'The Pro' Protopov (Robert Maillet - the 7ft man-giant from Sherlock Holmes) a boxer that on his sudden & mysterious release from a life-sentence wants nothing more than to track down his pen-pal-come-girlfriend, Lexi - a former stripper who has $30m worth of Anton's diamonds. Naturally, Anton wants to finally meet the beautiful Lexi (Sienna Guillory - RE: Afterlife) and reclaim his diamonds but needs Cruz's help in tracking her down.

When Cruz's search for Lexi leads him to the near ghost-town of San Celeritas in New Mexico, a town owned by Kestral Atomics & run by the acid-dropping, pot-smoking, nuclear physicist Sam Kestral (played by the sublime Sam Elliot - The Big Lebowski) a man who has built a huge proton-beam collider under the New Mexico desert in an attempt to find the elusive Higgs Boson or "God" particle; the case turns out to be more than a missing person investigation, it may just be the end of the world...

The Big Bang is a film-noir style P.I. story, but drops the high-contrast black & white cinematography but retains the protagonist's internal monologues. The first thing about TBB is just how well filmed it is.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie is basically a modern day re-working of the "Farewell My Lovely," by Raymond Chandler. There have, of course, been several previous film dramatisations, the best two of which starred Robert Mitchum and Dick Powell. Here, it is Antonio Banderas playing a Chicano reincarnation of "Philip Marlowe" with a nice turn by Sam Elliott as a demented, mega-rich villain and seven foot tall former wrestler, Robert Maillet, playing a Russian version of "Moose Malloy." Add on some good supporting play from Delroy Lindo, Thomas Kretschmann, William Fichtner and James Van Der Beek and you have the makings of a pretty good film noir. The first half of this film is just that as it more or less follows the original storyline but everything begins to go south when Banderas leaves L.A. and heads east to New Mexico. Here the plot strays into entirely new territory and, unintentionally, demonstrates why, decades from now, few filmgoers will be able to recall screenwriter Erik Jendresen but Chandler's stories will still be entertaining readers and film buffs.
