Quotes

Chris Harrison: I wish he had the balls to walk up, look me in the eye, and say, "I'm bangin' your wife." At least then I could respect him.
Matt Lee Whitlock: Well, maybe he'd like nothing better than to walk up to you and say... Chris, I'm bangin' your wife. *Good*. But your wife won't let him.

Great hot noir style
2 February 2014 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Matt Lee Whitlock (Denzel Washington) is the police chief of Florida small town Banyan Key. He just cracked a big drug case confiscating $450k. He's getting divorced from fellow police officer Alex (Eva Mendes) and having an affair with Anne Merai Harrison (Sanaa Lathan) who is separated from violent husband Chris (Dean Cain). Anne has just been diagnosed with cancer, and Matt takes the $450k for Anne's treatment. However, the money, Anne and Chris all burnt up in a suspicious fire.

This has a great noir sweaty style. Matt's questionable morality is interesting. I prefer his problems be forced upon him. However most of his problems are self-inflicted by his lack of judgment. There is a lot of things that needs to be overlook in this movie. While I like the style, the story needs a little help.
