R | 1h 30min | Crime, Drama, Thriller | 9 July 2011 (Japan)
A rookie cop is assigned to the 118 Precinct in the same district where he grew up. The Precinct Captain starts receiving letters about two unsolved murders that happened many years ago in the housing projects when the rookie cop was just a kid. These letters bring back bad memories and old secrets that begin to threaten his career and break up his family.
Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for violence, pervasive language and brief disturbing sexual content
All I can say is, what a waste of good talent. The pacing is brutally slow.
The actors are good, but the script is… uh lackluster, to be charitable. Juliette Binoche is horribly miscast, however, and the lighting make her and Katie Holmes look ghoulish.
Ray Liotta looks swollen, pockmarked and perpetually astonished.
The best acting is delivered by two eleven year olds, which doesn’t say much for the rest of the cast. More entertaining than watching paint dry, albeit marginally.
You want a great cop action thriller?
