    There's not much to it, but Austin Chick's hyper-focused indie does serve as a nicely assured showcase for lead Josh Hartnett. show more

    Could not even finish the movie it was sooooo dull. Rented it due to Hartnett but the story was so dull I could not even get half way through it for him.
