From the screenwriter of L.A. Confidential, comes a movie that tries too hard to be L.A. Confidential and FAILS. I shouldn't be so harsh on this movie but it's just so dull; for almost 90 minutes nothing happens and soon you'll be begging to see anything but Keanu Reeves' racist character or Jay Mohr's mugging for the camera. Thankfully, there is a small beacon of light: Hugh Laurie's character is entertaining and interesting enough that you'll be clamouring for him to return in focus to the action, but to no avail. This isn't a terrible movie, but a terribly forgettable one.

Rating: * * of 5
