The entertainment is where now?
Maybe I wouldn't be quite so grumpy if this film hadn't been recommended to me as a thriller, but even if it hadn't, I still don't think I would care for it. For precisely two minutes, you're treated to near-perfection of sound and imagery while Macy looks moody and cool as the credits pop up; the film makes a mistake it never recovers from at approximately 2:01, when a voiceover kicks in and the movie begins in earnest.

Other than well-done cinematography, I couldn't find much of anything to like about this film. The plot and characters are cliched and one-dimensional; I would rather watch more "acknowledged" cliches done well than more ridiculously precocious children, criminals with family lives, and bad guys who see therapists. The characters' extreme simplicity would be forgivable in a movie with something else taking up screen time, but in a movie that seemingly is about nothing but characters, it's dumbfounding. Only Macy has any hint of complexity, and it's really little more than a veneer established by making him awkward and moody.

The major plot points are fairly easy to predict; it's only a matter of when. The performances are mostly decent, (with the exception of the typically lousy Campbell) but the actors aren't given that much to work with; there are no memorable lines or particularly impressive acting moments. That about covers this film's lack of anything appealing; in the end, there's no thrills, no laughs, no insight, no point.
