Small... BUT... perfectly formed!,
This review is from: Cleaner [DVD] (DVD)
"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!
