(Review originally written at 25 February 2005)

With so many good English detectives series out there, there is absolutely no reason why you should go and watch this movie. If you have seen a couple of English detectives you will notice how extremely average this movie truly is.

The story is extremely average in every way and the plot twists are silly and mostly predictable, with as a result that the movie never really becomes tense. It really is a movie that already has been done dozens of times and uses too many clich├ęs.

Average however is not the same as bad of course. Sandra Bullock is a strong female lead but her character is not always likable throughout the movie. And the 'secret' from the past she is carrying with her; Silly and really unneeded. Real discovery of the movie are youngsters Michael Pitt and Ryan Gosling.

Watchable but most certainly not a must see.
