A woman is pulled back into a life of crime, only to learn that what she helped steal has other interested parties.

A mediocre movie which just feels off and awkward. Definitely not recommended.

Olga Kurylenko is either an absolutely awful actor, or playing an absolutely awful character, or maybe both. Probably both.

Something about a crime and lawyers and a court and stuff, but with racism.

Not my thing.

Something something narration and murder-mystery.

Great acting, but not a very good story or presentation.. I just didn't like it. I only saw this for Michelle Monaghan, and it was worth it.

An investigative reporter, most recently working on criminal drug stories, gets a lead that takes him down a rabbit hole few knew existed.

A fair movie at best, which I can only recommend for people of the mindset with interest in the United States' government's involvement in Bad Things.

Betrayed by his partner-in-crime over syndicate buy-in money, and by his wife over his affair, a man returns from his assumed-murder to collect his cut from their last job.

An amazing movie that has a great tone throughout. It's straightforward and blunt. Although Mel Gibson is flat, it works for both the character and the movie.

A hitman is witnessed just after a job, and becoming a suspect pushes his employers put a hit out on him.

While I can imagine this being really cool at the time, it certainly isn't any more. It has a slow moody atmosphere with a main character stiff enough to be a walking corpse. It's also just shy of being a silent film.

I only finished watching it because of the similarity Ghost Dog - (1999 movie) has with it, because I like that movie.

A recently-ex-con world-renown hacker is swept into the well-planned efforts to fund long-term anti-terrorist terrorism.

I-like-hyphens.

Ignoring the Hollywood-hacker bullshit, it's a good movie, particularly because so few, at least at its release, would be so A-class and yet have this particular topic. It helps shape the understanding of the passion behind Lawful Evil.

When his missing daughter turns up with a mark on her back, an ex-con fights to keep them both safe.

Dirty, dangerous and to-the-point. As always, Mel Gibson plays this stereotypical role of his quite well. If you like him in his other gritty movies, you'll like this one.
