The review

Behind the scenes
The psychological thriller made in 2002 by director Barbet Schroeder. Schroeder may be known for other roles as director Single White Female 1992, Kiss of Death from 1995 of Terror ?? s Advocate from 2007. He also appears occasionally for the camera. Schroeder also had to produce about 50 million dollar movie. The film released by Warner Bros. spent about $ 60 million and was thus a moderate financial success.
The actors and the story
The story is nicely put together and is written by Tony Gayton whose author has listed several works to his credit. The actors, not the first, the best, do not come completely out of the paint. Sandra Bullock pick and Ben Chaplin as police partners enough from their collaboration, while individual roles or fine drop. There is little chemistry and splatters not only what the same example Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves in Speed ​​it did. That is unfortunate, because that could be the film that little bit more shine
Canadian Ryan Gossling it was hailed as newcomer and indeed put a great role down.
Bullock had a short time ?? as in the film - a relationship with the much younger Ryan Gossllng.
All in all a nice film that is captivating enough to keep looking, but not absolute high-flyer of its kind. The sale and to rent on DVD / on demand and occasionally on television.
