Critics reviews

De Palma remains in cool, full control, especially in the discreetly organized, ten-minute-plus Steadicam shot that introduces detective Rick Santoro (Nicolas Cage) canvassing the grounds before the bout. De Palma tracks the chatty Santoro around corners and down elevators, tipping us off to a head-spinning amount of information that will later prove key to screenwriter David Koepp’s flashback-happy conspiracy plotting.
