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.
