A visually sophisticated & lush romantic thriller whose script is just too tame & docile to be the aspiring hard boiled & sexy noir film that it wants to be. Scott is a director who often treats his characters like rag dolls; mutilating & murdering them in brutal & savage ways. Sometimes you'd prefer he grew a heart but in this film, you wish he went hog-wild; it would've at least added some drama to this empty story
Entretenida, eso que ni que. Aun asi, esta es de esas cintas en las que Ridley Scott parece querer gritar a los 4 pinches vientos: "Miren, miren, fui yo quien dirigiò Blade Runner!". Preciosista de a ratos, la cinta no consigue nunca cuajar del todo debido precisamente a ese afan de Scott por dotar a esta rutinaria historia policiaca de deslumbrantes y obscuras atmosferas que, francamente, ni al caso.
A perfectly acceptable film which has its good moments. Especially the thrilling "Scottesque" chase sequences. The atmosphere and the mood are well set up but the characters are bland and there are way too many clichés so this film doesn't really stands out.
