Movie Review by Movie Addict
April 8th, 2007

What the Hell?

I am really not sure what to make of this film. I truly only watched it to see Scarlett Johansson and Hilary Swank. I was, of course, hoping for something of a story to go along with it. I was sorely disappointed as the film seemed to jerk along with no real direction. It certainly was no Chinatown - I really don't know what it was or what it was trying to be. Maybe it was DePalma direction. He certainly deserves another Razzie for this piece. Aaron Eckhart, who did a superb job in Thank You for Smoking, seemed really weird here. Josh Hartnett seemed miscast - too young for a film noir role. The only bright star, aside from seeing Johansson and Swank, was Mike Starr, in what I thought was his greatest role. He was really good.
