A compact, authoritative, mean and hard hitting, dramatic thriller. This movie seemed to fly under the commercial and critical radar which is a shame. Stephen Dorff, Harold Perrineau and Marisol Nichols all do great, emotional work that always comes from a place of realism and truth. However, Val Kilmer is the true standout of this production, giving a performance of soulful, powerful, charismatic intensity. Sleeper.
