Rookie Cleveland detective Michael Connelly is desperate to escape from under the shadow of his late father, a detective convicted of a drug scandal within the department when Michael was a boy. When a million dollars' worth of drugs are stolen from police custody and the detective on the case soon turns up dead, Michael begs his captain for the assignment and the chance to prove himself. But when his investigation points toward a crime network, Michael faces pressure to maintain the status quo as he plays a cat-and-mouse game with the powers that be, while under the watchful eye of a ghost-like assassin ensuring their secrecy.
I thought the movie was very well crafted. I liked the story line and while perhaps not totally original ad enough twists and turns that it kept you guessing for awhile. Beauty shots of Cleveland were just that, beautiful. I am a Clevelander and thought the production did the city and local talent proud. I really liked Justin Chatwin, he showed he can handle a lead role. Loved the bits oh humor scattered throughout the film. Peter Stormare, was great as usual and has a truly wonderful story telling moment in the film that was worth whatever salary they paid him!
